I wonder why you think Rachunek is one tough mofo though. Never saw that in him.

Ward - he's an upgrade to Strudwick and I wonder in what role he'll play. He played a lot of minutes during the regular season, and was an even bigger part of the post-season.

Pairings and ice time distribution will be interesting on the blue line this season (perhaps not as much as the forward lines, but nonetheless, interesting (like does Renney have a right hand shot on each pairing, or does he stick with his two pairings from last year and just throw Rachunek and Ward out there together?)).
I saw that in Rachuneck from his time in Ottawa, he definetly didn't show that type of heart with the Rangers at the end of 04 after the purge.
