3. Since Immonen is looking like our 3rd line center, you would move either Straka and Prucha to center the 3rd line? You really see no issues with this? You would play one of two players out of position on the 3rd line, just so that Sykora can sign here? Why would Sykora playing on the 2nd line be better than Straka and Prucha playing on the top-2 lines?
Cullen centers the 3rd line cause that's where he belongs.
(I guess you might not have read this entire thread but Prucha has played center and is listed as a center even on this site)
Straka wont last the whole season at center, but you wouldn't like to see the All-Czech line be the first on the ice October 5th?
Immonen should make the team, but even if for some chance he didn't, he'd still be up before December.
Sykora = Insurrance and a solid 2nd line RW
And maybe if they played him on the point on the PP, this wouldn't even be a discussion...
I'm sorry True Blue, as much as I'm a die-hard Ranger fan; I'm also a Sykora supporter and feel that he can still help us this up-coming season...
