Lefty for Lefty
If you’re a diehard Rangers fan, you already know the deal. Mr. Alain Vigneault is very particular when it comes to his righty-lefty alignment along the blueline.
He loves having the balance of three lefties and three righties.
The only time we didn’t see it this season was when McDonagh missed a few games and Dan Boyle, a righty, made the switch to the left side.
Brady Skjei being a lefty fits exactly what Vigneault wants in keeping that balance intact. He also provides a more balanced (offensive, defensive) game that mirrors what McDonagh usually provides.
