    I'm in extreme western Ontario, it's essentially Northern Michigan. There's zero difference between the people here and say, Bay City.

    Even pre-draft, Trouba was credited with having a "heavy" shot from the point, which has continued to be part of his bio and is something the Rangers have not had for awhile. I would not put Skjei in that category. Or DeAngelo. Fox is yet to be determined, but it is not in the common resumes. Maybe it's a Michigan thing.

    DeAngelo has a pretty hefty shot.

    Eh, sort of. People have known Shattenkirk to be a defensive liability for a while; we figured he could be pretty strong for two years and then kind of devolve into an M-A Bergeron-ish player.

    Trouba's not a noted liability, and his underlying metrics suggest he's a #1/1a defender. The question is how much of that was from playing behind Big Buff.

    MA Bergeron was better than Shatty offensively IMO, and had an amazing shot. But his total lack of size made it impossible for him to play anything but the most sheltered minutes

    re big buff exactly my point.

    guess we will see. great part of the deal is he is in his prime and could even get better.
