Newbury will at least forecheck hard and play physical.

Next to go is Christensen and Wolski.

We need to pull a deal for a guy like Franson to help the defense.

And recall one of Mitchell, Bourque, or Hagelin.

If we wantto win games we have to start cutting fat now and stop wasting valuable roster positions.
Agreed.

In the words of Michel Therrien..."this team is too soff". Especially the 4th line, when, in reality, your 4th line is supposed to be the "crash and bang" energy line that wears out the opponent's defense. The only player on the current 4th line who is capable of doing that is Mike Rupp, and he hasn't gotten the ice-time necessary to do so because Christensen/Zuccarello are liabilities when they play together, and are on the ice for only 5 minutes. Very, very ineffective. The Rangers need to trade for another Fedotenko/Prust/Boyle or two, or call up Ryan Bourque. This roster would look much better:

Stepan-Richards-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan
Fedotenko-Boyle-Prust
Rupp-Newbury/Mitchell-Bourque
