Try looking at the stats instead of the names on the backs of the jerseys.
So Martin (32 points), Oduya (29), Havelid (18), White (18), Salvador (15) and Mottau (13) and Greene (9) are better than Niedermayer (55), Pronger (48), Whitney (22), Wisniewski (21), Beauchemin (5), Brookbank (4) and Mikkelson (2)? You used one statistic which hides the fact that Giguere has played like crap all year...but TSN uses flawed stats to do all of their ratings which is why their ratings suck...

Ah, nothing like Devils fans trying to hijack a thread on the Rangers board.

Also, the Rangers are ranked correctly. The D is not very good. But those other rankings are crap.

obviously our defense isnt great offensively but they are underrated defensivley. there is a reason we are 4th in least ga with a backup goalie playing over 50 games. why should anaheims defense get so much credit when they have 2 HOF defenseman and a conn smythe winning goalie and they are 18th is ga?

We have three top pair dmen in Staal, Redden, and Rozi (honestly, I still feel Redden has been much better as of late, and will have a good year next year)
Two second pairing dmen in Girardi and Morris
and a Third Pair in Mara

still, to each his own I guess
Betts and Sjo are not Defenseman, over all this article is a little off, but our D isn't as good as the money we put in it to be honest.

the one and only stat people look at when it comes to Defense is +/- and that is never an accurate gauge of a d-man. But if you look at it like this .. the rangers d-men combined are a -36.

I went through the rankings and found them to be silly and uninformed for many teams. The Rangers have the sixth best GAA in the NHL. That does not equate to the 20th best defensive corp. I'd place little stock in this article. It's obvious that the writer hasn't seen many western teams playe this year.
