    You need a defensive defenseman paired with an offensive defenseman. That's critical. Unless you end up with two #1 two-way defensemen like Chara/Redden. But then you've hit the jackpot.

    Nastier, quicker, better IQ version of Girardi

    Don't disagree with the sentiment, but Fox is two-way. But yeah, if the Rangers were in the playoffs tomorrow, Fox and Lindgren draw the tough assignments. And I would be comfortable with that.

    Lindgren is easily the most underrated player on this team.

    You would think this could be the unique enough situation that it may happen. It's not like one good d man with a pylon, it's a top pairing that plays against the hockey elite every night that can seamlessly be brought in to just continue their level of play together. The only weakness that the pairing has in my opinion is they do seem to get bodied out in front of their own net from time to time, but that is it. Both will continue to mature as adults and both are extremely good players in their own ways and they are excellent together

    That’s a very fair point.

    Good, good player. Needs to stop taking shooting lessons from Trouba though. There's been several times where he's gotten the puck on the left side with plenty of space, skated in, and put a dent into the end boards

    Miller did that yesterday in OT (maybe?) I think and I was yelling at the TV so hard.

    Lindgren is honestly a pretty exceptional defenseman on this team

    he has proven that he's not a product of Fox and is completely capable of playing top pair minutes with or without him.

    I do not like the Girardi comparisons. Lindgren is an exponentially better skater and puck mover than Girardi was at his best, especially with lateral strides and gaps. At Lindgren's age, Girardi was in the AHL, not burying top scorers night in and night out. they're comparably in that they're physical and bleed a lot.

    Also every other game he absolutely freight trains someone but it never seems to end up on highlight reels. Guess cause they usually don't result in fights.

    Just happy to have him.

    Amen

    Easily the most underrated player on his own team. The back of his jersey might as well say "Fox's Partner" as no one knows about him. The kid is showing that he can go against the opposition's top players every single night.

    Were I in charge of the Olympics, I would lift the entire Lindgren-Fox pair for the tournament.

    He apparently listened and took lessons elsewhere. That snipe last game was sick.

    Honestly he's the kind of player I always wanted for the team. A hitman.
