I notice a lot of people put Gionta on Pando-Madden line, but I think he's too small to play all year on the checking line. Especially since Madden has said he'd like to concentrate on his defensive role. I think Berglund makes more sense.

What to do with Gionta is a bit puzzling, maybe he might work well with Larionov on the 4th line. Rasmussen could push Gionta out of line-up permanently if he doesn't start scoring some goals.

Larionov was very impressive in both Rangers games, but Burns will definitely have to limit his ice time. I don't see how he could survive playing on 1st or 2nd line. Great move by Lou though, Igor will breath life into the lifeless, bloated corpse-like power play.

Rupp will center one of the top lines and will Burns will beat the crap out of him all year to keep him motivated. I kind of feel sorry for him...
