good deal for the rangers. we got a better player with better upside...i figured dom was gone when he filed for arbitration. from what i've read though he isn't physical as his size suggests...

as for line combos, one of the great things about the guys we have added is the flexibility that it gives us. cullen can play either center or wing on the 2nd or 3rd lines, prucha can play either wing on any of the top 3 lines, straka can play center or wing on the 1st or 2nd line. ward filled in at center when betts was out and did a good job so he can play center or wing. hollweg can play center or wing. shanahan can play on the 1st or 2nd lines...

so there is lots of flexibilty which one is great cause it creates extra depth if guys get hurt we can shift guys around to fill in easily and second its great cause when dawes, immonen, helminen, greg moore, dubinsky, etc come to came to fight for roster spots none of them are really being blocked. there isn't room for all of them but the ability to shift all the forwards around means that any of those kids can make the team if they earn a spot and then the lines can be adjusted accordingly.
