Hey guys, if the Rangers can get Orpik for Prucha I would say go for it. The top line of Jagr, Nylander and Straka is set. If Jagr likes his Czechs let them keep the Roszival Malik pairing and lets find some good ole gritty type players to compliment Shanny oh the second line. Prucha has high upside but also low downside and a very slight frame.
Orpik is a younger version of the good Kasparaitis. Not much offence but a huge hitting rock on defence. He is 25, been in the league a while and may be a perfect compliment to a Bobby Sanguinetti in the future of an offensive minded Rachunek, current.
I would hate to lose Prucha but maybe its time to start a new way of thinking, build from defence out as our biggest future stars are between the pipes or on the blueline. Pick up Malone and use him as Center with Shanny and stick a smaller faster Dawes on the line. One Superstar, one highly tooted rookie, and 1 reclamation project with size at pivot with an above average upside.
As for Rosie, let the blues keep him, the last thing the Rangers need is to get older, they will have no legs in the playoffs if they make it.
