This gives the Rangers more toughness on the 1st line and someone who could protect Jagr. Plus they get more scoring ability with Straka being able to get the puck to Shanny on the 2nd line.
Just a thought...
It did cross my mind. I don't know to be frank, don't know how Avery is defensivly. The problem with that line is that Straka is the first man in and the first man back, if Nyllet and Jagr don't get that they are in trouble. With a player like Avery its a risk that he will get engaged in something and loose his position. At the same time, Nylander can take a bigger defensive responsibility, when Nylander have played on the 3rd line he have been decent on D.
