Would he really be that terrible of a 7th D-man for the Rangers?
Ehh, i don't think so. Like most cases, his bad play was slightly exaggerated. He's a decent 7th guy that you can throw in for a lot of grit. He's a decent skater, and a great checker. But thats about it. And as I'm sure you'll all hear, if you don't know already, a lot of times he's horrible positionally (usually due to big hits placing him there)
