The New York Rangers Defensive Corp- The Best In The NHL?

from Brett Cyrgalis of the New York Post,

It’s an enviable situation for any team, and the Rangers know that.

In most training camps around the NHL, there is a role of “depth defenseman” being fought for by a handful of veterans hanging on or young players trying to make an impression. And in most camps, that winner likely will receive a role on the third pair — in the starting lineup.

For the Blueshirts, the battle for depth defenseman is for the man who gets the honor to be a healthy scratch. That’s because the top six, the men who start, are arguably the best group of six in the league.

“You look at our lineup, and there’s no weaknesses there,” Marc Staal told The Post after Saturday night’s 4-3 win over the Devils at Prudential Center. “We’re a very talented group and a lot of different guys bring a lot of different aspects. We compliment each other pretty well.”
