if Rucinsky is healthy, comes down to Hollweg vs Hossa and which version of the HMO line plays while Rucinsky playing with Betts and Ward.....Personally, I wouldn't mind giving Martin one more game to recover..but either option is OK...I would suspect that Hossa plays--Rennye seems to be playing him more and having more confidence in him despite his total lack of production and dangerous defensive lapses..
I tend to agree with you Larry and I thought that's more or less where my post was going. If the Rangers coaching staff believe Kaspar is going to get hunted down (which I don't believe and don't believe that they do) then they might want to dress Orr. I don't believe the Flyers would do this in MSG anyway. Maybe in their own barn. It's usually best to put out your best lineup. We have the makings of a deadly pwp. We are also (and I don't mean to be disrepectful to the Flyers) a better team than they are. Even injuries aside. They might be better on paper. Too many of their players are old, injury prone, some of their D are slow, their goaltending is suspect (although Nittymaki looks to be a good one)--they almost remind me of some of our teams before this season.
