The Hockey News has compiled a list of the top 10 defensemen under 25.
Tenth on their list, is the Rangers Marc Staal:
He became a top-two blueliner over established veterans such as Wade Redden and Michal Rozsival. He won’t put up big numbers, but he’ll keep opposing players from doing so.
…Staal is as much apart of the Rangers future as anyone and inclusion on this list doesn’t dissuade that. The scary thing about this list is how many of the leagues top defensemen are under 25.
Mike Green is only 23. He had 73 points last season, thats nuts.
