The difference is that the Rangers are trying to make a run right now and don't have four better centers to throw out there. The only healthy guy they could bench him for is Kris Newbury. In the offseason they have the opportunity to pick up a nice bottom six defensive center and they have the luxury of knowing a guy like Lindberg will be pushing for a spot.
