Rory Boylen at The Hockey News has a great piece on Rangers prospect Ryan McDonagh….
Gordie Clark on what is expected from McDonagh…
“He’s just a smaller version of Marc Staal,” Clark said. “We did not have him as a point-producing guy. In the NHL, this guy is going to be a shutdown defenseman with his skating ability.”
…not a bad comparison. Hopefully, McDonagh plays a little tougher than Staal.
