Is this the deepest Rangers team we've had post-lockout?

Also agreed. With our forward depth, though, I guess I just think it makes more sense to have three scoring lines and a 4th that is a shut-down line (as opposed to the goon-it-up lines that we've had in the past). I see them getting a more regular shift than we've seen in past seasons. I don't really think of the line numbers in terms of promotions or demotions, but more in terms of role.
With this team:
It just makes sense for Brass to be on with those wingers and Boyle to be on the more defensive-minded line. Frankly, depending on how they play on any given night, EITHER of the first three lines could end up seeing "1st line" minutes.
If Miller can force the issue by sticking, I'd actually love to see:
