No you can't. You can't just toss around players wherever. Putting Anisimov on the wing is almost as ill-advised as putting Gaborik in goal. You don't put your smartest defensive player in a position where he can't use that skill to his full advantage.

Who said Sharp was made of glass?

Other than the fact that saying something so "matter-of-factly" is pretty bold, it's even incorrect.

Obviously, defense isn't his strong point -- he is a puck mover, and the Rangers have a lack of puck movers. Tack on the fact that he's 20, and not even fully developed yet as an NHLer, I think we can let that slide for a year or two, so long he provides the offense that the backend needs. It's not like he doesn't put in the effort, even. He tries to improve his game, it's really just the mental aspect of it -- and that's normal for a 20 year old. Be patient.

If you're talking strictly to start the season? Sure. But that could change in a snap.

No it doesn't. If Erixon was a puck mover, maybe. Del Zotto is the only puck moving defenseman in the entire organization -- he's not going anywhere, or shouldn't, in the least.

What does this even mean?

How? A 20 year old kid staying at college is a problem? Only Ranger fans.
Don't waste your time.

Didn't you know, Jagr is the greatest Ranger of all time, and 20 year old players are busts if they're not Hart Memorial candidates.
