I think some of you need to take a tranquillizer. I'm high on Tarasenko as well (picked him up last night) but 2 games guys... it's been 2 games. We wouldn't be having this conversation last week.
A couple things:
-MDZ DOES have a monopoly on the Rangers PP... who's going to take it away from him? Girardi? McDonaugh? Cause clearly they're knocking on the door with their offensive prowess right?
-How has MDZ been a "disappointment"? 41 points last season, 10 points in 20 playoff games, and most importantly - his defensive game has substantially improved (+20 last season) which means the Torts will play him with more confidence... yeah tragically disappointing.
I personally have a lot of faith in MDZ... his past numbers aren't incredible by any means but I've been following him for a while and I think this is the year he breaks out. I drafted him in my own cash pool so I'm not here to blow smoke up your asses.
