In all honesty, very little has been working since November..

But you have a point about the chemistry..Most teams have no problems rotating 4th liners and last pair D-men to keep everybody fresh, to keep the the entire team involved, to sit unproductive players and to optimize matchups.This probably helps chemistry....IMO, Renney fails at this with his love of certain unproductive 4th line wingers and not utilizing the strenghts of his role players..but his is minor

However, as you pointed out, when these changes constantly affect the top 3 lines, you are messing with your chemisty and individual/team production..A big reason why the Rangers are nothing more then a .500 team..OTOH, you can't get blood from a stone and our roster is very limited and redundant..
