No way Dawes, he's the only one of the young smurfs that provides offense when in. Should be between Prucha and Cally...ANd Orr, but I don'tthink Renney is goingthere

no way on Cally, he is coming off an injury and at least he plays physical. Dawes does too but u know when it comes to Hossa, Renney loves him so he might scratch Dawes.

When prucha can stand on his skates, connect for the one timer, and shoot instead of passing all the time.... he can be inserted back in the lineup, until then sit the hell down

Prucha is one of my favorite players, but he really hasn't done anything recently. Maybe if he is scratched for a game or 2 he will start playing like his old self.

A joke? I sit Hollweg when we need Orr to regulate (vs. Brashear and Laraques of the league) and sit Orr in the games we don't need Orr.

Hossa-Betts-Hollweg

or Hossa-Betts-Orr

When Avery gets back, that's an entirely different story...

Might be Hollweg or Callahan. Personally if it were me it would be Hollweg. Against Ottawa with McGrattan and Neil I'd rather Orr was in the lineup. Having said that playing him every game is ridiculous. Same with Hollweg and with what Prucha, Callahan and the returning Hossa have provided they could all do with some sitting. A lot of disappointing forwards this year. I'd note once more that Greg Moore is 10th in AHL scoring--is a +20 and is a big and stocky forward. When Avery comes back I would not be against sending Callahan down to see if he could regain some confidence and going with a 4th line at least on some nights (sitting both Hollweg and Orr) of Betts, Moore and Hossa--a 4th line with some size and skill.

i agree. Cally is just getting back to normal and playing well, no need to take him out now.

I really can't understand people not narrowing it down to Prucha or Cally...Both have been utterly worthless, both ways..I know Prucha has at least done something in his young career (but sucks right now) but Cally is so overated...Except for maybe two two goal games the guys has been close to a zero and has showed he is more of an AHL player then an NHLer....I keep waiting for more..As for Orr, we can see this year, that his presence, protection, fighting (which he chooses not to do anymnore) mean absolutley nothing no matter who we play

When Hossa and then Avery come back, I wouls forst sit Prucha and Cally (o Orr) and see what happens...then rotate in and out

This team lacks a physical element as it is. Subtracting Hollweg would do nothing but add to it. To me, the answer is simple. Hossa is the one that sits. However, that is not going to happen.

but its sad that dawes so far this season has produced as much offense as Prucha, cally, hollweg and orr.
in less amount of games and ice time

But lets send Dawes back to the minors.... f***ing stupid.

bench prucha and let dawes play for a bit.

I think this may have gone overlooked, but the PK hasn't been quite the same since Hossa has been out. I think he's way undervalued in that sense, so I think he should be inserted back into the lineup. I say take out Callahan.

Not ready to trade Prucha, but letting him have a seat may do some good.

When Hollweg plays like he has the last 3 games, he is much more valuable to this Rangers team at ES than Hossa is.

It proves that Hollweg is more valuable then ORR.

Hollweg - Betts - Hossa

Hossa can kill penalties..Hollweg and Orr, cannot. And it all comes down to the overall game, not just ES. Though still ES...i'd take Hossa 200x before AHLer Orr.


I would have said, Yea..Orr should play vs the Physical team..but what the hell did he do tonight? Nothing. Was he really trying to score a goal with his ECHL offensive talent over doing his real role?

He is good for one thing and one thing only...fighting. And he doesn't do that enough to stay in the lineup.

We are trying to win games by good offense and defense right? Orr brings neither.

Great point. I wonder if any pro hockey coach looks at fan forums. We are devoting our time here (especially you) and we have a lot of brains all in one forum, and you think Renney would have a better CNS, but he currently is in a state of amnesia right now. Sean Avery needs to hipcheck him soon to take him out of that state.

doesn't it seem like every time ranger fans want hollweg out of the lineup that he comes out and play his best hockey?
