1st: AA - Stepan - Gabby = WW is a downgrade at any of those positions

2nd: Hagelin - Richards - Cally = again WW is a major downgrade

3rd: Mitchell - Boyle - Dubs = Can't say I see WW as a major downgrade here to a Mitchell - Dubs - WW, or Boyle - Dubs - WW line. But Jack Capuono? (sp?) all but came out and said that the NYR had guys that were grinding them to dust. He's not the firstů JD also alluded to the physicality in the NYR line-up, as did Ron Wilson.

I think this line causes problems for other lines, and traps top units in their own zone, manning up against their forecheck pressure. I know there's always a myriad of opinions here, but my opinion is that we are stronger having a 3rd and 4th line that both can be very physical.

The 4th is well suited to physicality and responsible defensive play.

The 3rd is well suited toward physicality and heavy forecheck pressure with some offensive creativity.
