Those guys can skate and have good size.

Not so much.

Kreider, Hagelin, Callahan, Nash and MZA are all good skaters on the wings. Unfortunately, only Nash and Kreider have good size.


My goal for this off-season would be to bring in some guys for the bottom-6 who can grind on other teams, skate well, provide some size, and are multi-dimensional in terms of being able to PK or fight, etc.

I don't see, outside of a significant trade, a can't miss option with size for the top-6.
Nash has size but rarely hits, plays physical or screens the goalie. he does not use it that much... throw Maxim Lapierre and Kyle Chipurcha (SP) to those UFA that has size and uses it. i bet Lapierre is part of the Rangers before end of August. AV played this guy on average 12 mins a night and 7th amongst forwards in ice time.. kills penalties and also adds speed.. would be a big upgrade over Powe.. brings more offense.. i bet Lapierre is signed early in the offseason..
