After Stralman was hurt, Ryan McDonagh told the NY Post,“he’s such a mobile skater and that’s huge as a defenseman. He’s able to get a step on a guy and create some space and find a passing lane to get it up to our forwards. He’s been exceptional in the playoffs.”

John Tortorella said that the Rangers really missed Stralman after he was injured.

Stralman said  of his season. “it was a step, absolutely. You wanna take small steps at least, I think I took one last year and I took one this year.”

He said that he felt he was more consistent and that he was beginning to feel as if his offensive game was starting to return.
