I'm not totally sold on Nylander as a first-line centre, but then again, I'm not the world's biggest Zhamnov fan, either.

I really like this lineup, though: I think it's the most realistic that I have seen on these boards yet. The Rangers aren't deep enough to rotate 4 lines, that 3rd line will be the de-facto energy line, and with smart players like this, it won't be a total liability. What I like the most is the second line: Holik is going to command at least 2nd-line minutes, whether he's used as a checker or not. Thus, it makes no sense to have him play with Murray and Ortmeyer on a "can't score" line. In fact, it would be good for Balej and Lundmark: Holik has the talent to feed them for goals; the size to give them space; the smarts to teach them defence and to play simply; and the leadership and will to make sure neither takes a night off.
