Anyone notice McDonagh has REALLY improved his shot, in all aspects? It's more accurate, harder, and he gets it off cleaner. If he could improve a bit more his offense would be every bit as good as Subban's.
I was thinking this. It's to the point where it's legitimately really good.
If he can continue to improve this there is no reason he can't pot 60 points a year in his prime.
I wonder if Mac was playing injured those first two rounds or if it was just rust. To go even further, was he playing hurt in the final two rounds and he just was able to battle through it while getting the rust off? The turnaround he had from the first two series to the Habs series and on was remarkable.
Don't bother going to main forum. McD is like Mike Green and Erik Karlsson now. His defensive is overrated. Oh and Drew Doughty is Bobby Orr, Brian Boyle making him look silly doesn't matter. Doughty scored a sick goal in game 1! That's all that matters.
im not a fan of doughty.. mcdonagh i think is better bc of his defense.. and honestly playing steller d is what is suppose to be expected out of dman, way more important, doughty coughed the puck up a lot. if we were looking at pts, then karlson by far is the best dman.. but points doesn't tell the story..
McDonagh is the best dman we've had since Leetch, and has the potential to be the best Dman in the history of the franchise. I hope he becomes that.
He's the best we've had since Leetch. Let's leave it at that for now. Better than Leetch/Park is an extremely high mountain to climb. Does he really have that kind of potential? That would require being a career Ranger, winning three or more Norris trophies, a Conn Smythe, a Cup, and entering the Hockey Hall of Fame.
Is it mostly Kings fans who are defensive about the fact that Rangers fans think he's in the same stratosphere as Doughty?
Lot's of people besides Kings fans, out of jealousy and bitterness for obvious reasons. McDonagh embarrassing the Canadiens while PK was a detriment every time he was on the ice was probably hard to cope with.
