Valentenko looks raw, but that physicality and big shot are certainly things the Rangers could use—

….The talent is there is there with Tank. He doesn’t take any crap, hits, is physical and has an absolute cannon from the point. He took his shot last night and all I could dream of was that he replace Michal Rozsival on whatever powerplay he would be on with that insane shot. And boy, does he hit. He had five last night to co-lead the team with Brandon Prust in 20 minutes of ice time. He was a minus two, and he still has a lot to learn about playing defense at the NHL level, but when he gets a little bit more improvement, he could be a good one.
