Gaborik needs centre to score his goals. His puck possession time must be minimal. I do not expect Gaborik to be much better without Richards unless Anisimov would progress fast. I doubt the latter, two more years are needed for Anisismov to reach the elite level he could get at. S

Plumbers do not get as much concussions as elite players. It is not because their heads are stronger or something. It is because their heads are targeted less. If Mike Rupp will NOT end up playing on first line to protect Rangers best assets I will eat my hat. Based on what I posted earlier Dubi and Cali as well as pretty much everyone else must take Mike to dinner often. ;-)
