Seems to me your real issue is with Glen Sather.

I don't disagree. I've said many times in this thread I wish the correct personnel was in place. As I said before this season, I believed going into the year with Brian Boyle as a third liner was a mistake, and I still think that, and I think the statistics prove me right.

If it were up to me, Kreider would be on the third line on this team. I understand why he isn't, but that's what I would do. Until then, I'm just hoping that when Dorsett is healthy he steps right into the Rangers top-9, Pyatt goes out, and Boyle drops down to line 4.

As such:

Nash - Stepan - Zuccarello
Clowe - Richards - Callahan
Hagelin - Brassard - Dorsett
Asham - Boyle - Powe

Would be my top 12 when the current NYR roster is completely healthy.
