While I somewhat expect the Rangers to bring in someone for the 2nd line, the plan could just as easily be to allow camp to sort things out. What if guys like GMoore, Dawes or even a Dubinsky play well enough to force the Rangers hands and put them on the big club? Maybe a Moore earns a shot at the 3rd line, and Renney decides to move Ward to the 2nd line, next to say, Cullen and Prucha? People keep leaving Greg Moore out of potential lineups next year, but, I think he is the one player who might the physically ready to play at the NHL level.
Also, I don't think bringing back Rozsival is such a given right now. He could easily be trade fodder pending the result of his arbitration hearing. And, Rachunek could easily slide into his spot next to Malik. Personally, I think Staal is headed back to juniors. And, I 'd love to see Pock get a spot next to Ward. Given the numbers Fish uncovered regarding Ward, (he averaged 19 minutes a game last year, less than the likes of Malki and Kaspar), the Ward-Pock pairing would make sense in terms of icetime.
