Not that I think the Rangers will do any of this, but this is mine.

Dubinsky<A>-Anisimov-Callahan<C>
Tanguay-Stepan-Gaborik
Kreider-LaRose-Zuccarello
Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust

Staal<A>-Girardi
McDonagh-Sauer
Erskine/O'Brien-Gilroy/Del Zotto

I'm taking a long term approach here. I added a few players who I think could improve our chances at a playoff run while we wait for the right time to make a splash. I don't think we're ready yet, I'm shooting for 2013 or 2014 for a deep run. I'm hoping for cheap, short contracts for LaRose and Tanguay. LaRose is a scrappy player who fits the system and scores a little. Tanguay is a solid veteran playmaker off the wing who adds depth. Erskine/O'Brien, either one, is the crease-clearer we desperately need; could serve as a stop-gap while McIlrath fills out. The 6 spot is up for grabs between Gilroy and Del Zotto. I'm leaning Gilroy if he keeps taking risks and jumping in like he did in the playoffs. Gilroy needs to be coached well to get results. I've traded Wolski, but I have no idea what we'd get in return which could potentially change the lineup, but probably not because I don't see us getting a starter for him. I know noone's gonna like this cause it's a little bit conservative but I still think we're a team on the rise so I'm being patient.
