Dubinsky will add a nice physical two way presence to Naslund and Z's skill. The 3rd and 4th are solid two way lines that can score.
I know I know... wheres Betts? Betts is probably one of our only 3-4 line guys that has some value. If hollweg netted a 5th... Betts might be able to get us a 3rd, maybe even a 2nd.
Korpedo first call up.
In the end Drury goes to the wing not Dubi.
Anisimov will not start in the Rangers lineup this year. He still needs one more year.
I like moving Drury to wing with Gomez and Dawes.
Dawes Gomez Drury
Naslund Dubinsky Zherdev
Prucha Fritsche Callahan
Voros Betts Rissmiller
Don't forget they still have the new guy from Sweden Jamtin plus Korpikoski might make it. So nothing is in stone. However big question can Fritsche play third line.
Also I don't like the move and you guys might not either but Renney did it last year. He moved Betts to third line. The problem no offence but he might want a checking line. So Betts and Fritsche might switch.
