Since Ryan McDonagh got hurt, John Moore has averaged just under 19 minutes of ice time per game.
Raphael Diaz, on the other hand, has averaged just 14 minutes.
It's clear then that Moore has passed Diaz on the depth chart.
Diaz hasn't really done much since being acquired from Vancouver. In nine games with the Rangers, Diaz has one goal, one assist and is plus-five.
But ice time tells us how coaches perceive their players. Moore has been playing well since McDonagh got hurt.
And since McDonagh is likely to return for the postseason, then it seems, unless Diaz can step up, that Moore will slide back to the third pair.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, given that Moore has played most of the season on the third pair. But Diaz is better on the power play, an area where the Rangers have struggled of late.
We'll see what happens in the final games. But unless Diaz picks it up, it looks like he'll be riding the pine in the postseason.
