19th Best Defense for Rangers

TSN has ranked the Rangers defense the 19th best (or worst depending on how you look at it) defense in the NHL in their recent rankings...

19. NEW YORK RANGERS
Unit: Marc Staal, Dan Girardi, Michael Del Zotto, Michal Rozsival, Wade Redden, Matt Gilroy, Anders Eriksson.
Goals/Per Game: 30/.07
Assists/Per Game: 104/.23
Plus-Minus: -15
Hits/Per Game: 762/1.68
Blocked Shots/Per Game: 637/1.40
Games Played: 454
Cumulative/Average TSN.ca Rating: 465.13/66.44


...in my opinion this unit should actually be ranked lower. Lundqvist has masked a lot of their deficiencies.
