This is the lineup that I see (assuming Brad signs, which looks increasingly more likely):

Wolski - Brad - Gabby
Dubi - Anisimov - Cally
Hagelin - Step - Zuccarello
Rupp - Boyle - Prust

Avery - Christ - Weise

If Hagelin proves capable of NHL play, which I think he will, there is definitely a spot for him. Avery and Christ will step in when someone is injured and/or if Zuccarello proves unworthy, which I think he won't.

It's up to Hagelin (and Zuccarello) to lose their spots in the top-9. If the two of them step up, and Gabby returns to his 40-goal form, the Rangers would be a Cup contender.
