…heeeeeeeeeeeeee’s baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack. McDonagh must be feeling real confident in his shoulder as he’s no longer playing the tentative and passive brand of hockey he displayed earlier this postseason. Instead he’s back to being one of the best shutdown defenseman in the league, while his surprising offensive output has been resurrected.
…i would have liked to see a little bit of a speech from McDonagh after receiving the hat, especially since he seems to be a candidate to become captain next season. If the Rangers decide not to buyout the much more vocal Richards, I could see him getting the “C” instead. St. Louis would also be a dark horse if Richards is jettisoned this offseason.
