Stralman played the 8th most minutes of any defensemen in the playoffs this year.(Expressen)
Dave Maloney said during the Flyers series that Stralman and his pair with Marc Staal provided a second "top pair" to battle with Claude Giroux.
Ron Duguay says that Stralman does all of the little things you want from a defenseman.
Maloney said during the playoffs that Stralman "rarely panics" when he has the puck.
Marc Staal said between game one and game two against the Penguins, "he is a great player, really underrated. He doesn't get as much attention as he deserves, he is playing great all year long. Very smart with the puck, good positionally, has a good stick, we have worked well together and want to keep that going.
Stralman said that he isn't the player he was when he joined the Rangers and credited John Tortorella and Mike Sullivan for making him better. (NY Times)
He is in the final year of a two-year deal that has a cap hit of $1.7 million and an actual salary $1.8 million.
