Sjo Betts Korpedo

is actually an insanely young lineup, not an insanely old lineup.
What you show looks pretty good. Just saying that after reading some posts in this thread, the anti-age thing get a bit weary. NYR is not an old team. When people on this board wax endlessly about the need to sign Jagr, this same age factor is not mentioned. Sundin is rugged, finishes, is in fact one of the most rounded players in the world. No, he is not Jagr, nobody is. And in some ways, that is a good thing.

Never mind, doubt it is happening. So never mind that, but I disagree with anyone questioning what Sundin could add to the Rangers. If what they are saying is that he is a centre and we don't need one, well I guess okay, But, I would still say this guy is exactly the type of forward the Rangers need. Of course it will not happen, but that guy would be the bruising power forward that would count for a lot of offense over a season.
