Tyutin has gone from making rookie mistakes last season to becoming our best defenseman, it was an easy vote.

I didn't say he hasn't been playing "good hockey all season." I said that in the context of most improved, Hossa, would be my man if he could continue his play of the last ten games over the final twenty. It's the addition of his confidence and the offense that would make him improved beyond any other Ranger.

What people fail to consider, and this is the true sign of a bandwagon-hopper, is that Hossa has more or less played the same game since last March. There are only two differences between his recent stretch and at any other moment in the aforementioned timeframe: his confidence which has led to offense, and the responsibility and icetime he's received.

Now that he's putting points on the board people are finally starting to watch and get this - notice! - the things he does that do not result in a goal. I've said this before and I'll say it again: it's all about the speed and noise for most people, and without it they just don't care. Hossa is just another example of it.

Fedor has added a physical element to his game although his offense has not been very apparent. Rangers seem reluctant to use him though on the powerplay. Hossa I'm not convinced is for real. Let him make something of the last 20 games and bring it into next season and then we'll see with him.
