Come on Edge--I've been yakking for years about playing young players and how "salvation lies within" but I know that there is no way Sather is going to put two kids on the top two lines and leave them there long enough to get comfortable and productive. It ain't going to happen anymore than putting Moore and Lundmark with Lindros (which I have proposed too) is going to happen. And even if it does happen (not tonight, I haven't seen any pigs flying outside my window today), it won't last because some veteran will come back from injury and be rewarded with the spot.
Sather signed Hlavac and Rucinsky to be his top line wingers. Unless he goes out and either dredges up another waiver wire veteran to plug into that role or makes a trade, that's who's going to be playing here. And we might as well play Hlavac now. Letting him sit and rot on the sidelines will not help him regain his scoring touch (if it's still there).
Just another normal crazy day in Rangerland.
