Agree with all 3 players. AA in his second full season and the development of Stepan would go a long way towards alleviating concerns at center. They do not have the boffo #1 center but they do have two good young solid centers in those two players. That's more than other teams have up the middle. Chris Drury will be better than last season. Erik Christensen will get his points by accident playing with Marian Gaborik and Alexander Frolov(contract year).

This is Staal's team. He should get the "A". Had a solid 2nd half last year. Torts told Dave Maloney and Bill Pidto on the MSG NHL show before training camp(which I will not watch if Butch Goring and Al Trautwig are on. Goring is a ****ing moron)that Staal finally got what he wanted him to do. It showed in the Staal goal last Friday.

Development from the young players. Breakout year from Dubinsky(contract year). Ryan Callahan(contract year).

The Rangers have the assets to make a deal. Cap space. Prospects. Picks.

The Debbies
Really.. you can make a case for any center who plays on the first line with Gaborik and Frolov getting plenty of points by accident just passing the puck to Gaborik... Whether it be EC, Stepan or whomever...

Not bad info from Brooks. I can see the Rangers making the playoffs with this roster. There is plenty of talent on this team.
