Ola-Anytime and a few questions.

How do you feel about Fast at LW? On one hand the three of those guys have great chemistry together, but on the other, Kristo is a shooter and much like when they were together at Traverse City, Fast becomes more of a playmaker or two way guy on that line. On the other hand, the fact that he can play LW and do it well will only help him get another crack with the Rangers this year.

Totally agree with you that Beach just isn't NHL material.

What did you think of Noreau in his limited minutes?

As for Aliu, really rooting for the kid. Followed him during his draft year when he dropped to round two and was cool when he got that cup of coffee with Calgary. I really hope he sticks because the Rangers needs guys in their system with that type of skill set. He'll only be 25 in April. He's not gonna be the next Tim Kerr but if the Rangers can turn him into a Dave Bolland or for those of you who remember Mike LeClerc or Bates Battaglia in the early 2000s (basically a rugged 3rd liner that can net 8-12 goals a year and fight) that's a huge win.
