The Rangers, again IMO, need to have someone on Jagr's line to protect him like the Isles did with Simon earlier in the season playing with Yashin/Blake. He needs freedom to move like he has on the power play where he is virtually unstoppable when healthy. A rugged winger who also has some skill would really improve the Rangers.
Yes. Believe it or not...I know I'm a huge believer in balance...but tossing Shanny on a line with Jagr for a bit may work. I know one thing...after Witt went head hunting on Jags and got burned last night...Shanny woulda done something. Your classic power forward...we got let's toss him with Jags and make it work
