Well said, man.

I'm more concerned with the ability of the Rangers to ice more than 1 line capable of scoring. It's been the Hagelin - Stepan - Nash show. Gaborik - Richards - Pyatt/Cally has shown some spurts but nothing near consistent enough. 3rd line is the key. Miller - Boyle - Pyatt has really shown nothing in terms of being able to generate scoring chances. Sure they grind, but beyond that there is nothing. I would either put Kreider next to Richards - Gabby and Cally to the third line or put Kreider - Miller - Cally back together and move Boyle up to the 2nd line LW. Either way put Gabby back at RW where he has played his whole career and is obviously more comfortable.

What does everyone think of a Boyle - Richards - Gaborik line?
