Naslund-Gomez-Zherdev
Drury-Dubinsky-Dawes/Freechee
Prucha/Korpikoski-Anisimov-Dawes/Fritsche
Callahan-Betts-Voros
EXTRA-Rissmiller

Staal-Redden
Rozsival-Girardi
Kalinin-Mara/Physical Dman via trade
EXTRA-Strudwick

Lundqvist
Valiquette

Despite the 3rd line being very young, this would be in my opinion a very dominant line-up. We have filled all of our hole excluding a physical Defenseman, and although we have gotten a little less physical with the departure of Avery, we have gained the skill that we have been lacking.

Just by doing some number crunching and assuming that Dawes, and Fritsche are signed at around 1.5 each, we seem to be at roughly about 3-4 Million dollars below the cap ceiling, leaving us some room to trade for maybe a physical Defenseman that costs a little more.

Sather has had a great off-season. I was considering pre-ordering a Tavares jersey, but he has really turned it around and built us for the future.

P.S. No, I wasn't actually considering pre-ordering a Tavares jersey.

No way, they wouldnt trade Naslund if that what you mean.

Not only is Naslund a great player - hes a great guy and does a TON of charity work. He will fit right into the Rangers and Gravey way here.

I love this signing, and im fine with the 2 years actually.

Callahan has to be the most overrated player on the Rangers, with the amount of love he gets from fans.

Amazing, considering he can't reach double digits in the goals column.
Most people like Cally because of his heart and grit. Sure, the people that think he's going to net 30 are fooling themselves, but there's a lot to like about Cally. It's just like when we had Ortmeyer... Everyone loved him, because of how he played, not because of his point totals.

I doubt Anisimov starts the season on the Rangers. There's always a chance but I think he needs a little more time in Hartford as their number one center.

can we stop putting Girardi w/ rosy... its just not going to happen... I know we all have hard on's for Staal but it probably would serve us best if he was on the second pairing for shot balance, and so we have a real good dman on each of the first two pairings.

Redden-Rosy
Staal-Girardi
kalinen- does it matter?

Any team with Callahan listed as a top 6 winger is in serious trouble.
As is any team with the should be AHL bound Korpikoski on the 3rd line and a 2nd line with 1-dimensional Dawes and the continually declining Naslund..not to mention the enigmatic but high octane/potential Zherdev on a "1st" line...All that being said

Naslund-Gomez-Zherdev
Drury-Dubinsky-Dawes/Cally
????-Fritsche-Cally/Dawes
????-Betts--????

And those qustion marks can be whoever wins between Voros (probably 3rd line), Resimiller,Prucha,Sjostrom, Orr,Hollweg, the Swedish pest we jsut signed and an outside chane for one of Korpikoski, jessiman, or Byers..

Lines I'd try first

Naturally you are gonna see Renney tinker. And then change the lines up with 2 games left in preseason.

Naslund-Gomez-Zherdev <-- has to be the top line.

Dawes-Drury-Prucha
<-- I hate putting Prucha on RW but that line played well last season. Prucha just needs to bury the puck whenever Dawes dishes out those sick passes.

Korpikoski-Dubinsky-Callahan <-- the pack line!

Voros-Betts-Fritsche

extras
Sjostrom, Rissmiller, Orr - if Korpikoski doesn't make the team in the beginning and Fristche doesn't resign (sure he will), then these three can fill in the vacancies.

Staal-Redden <-- put your two best together. +Invest in Staal.
Kalinin-Rosival <-- defensive anchor for Rosival. Rosival doesn't have to go up against top players. R & L shooters.
Rookie-Girardi

I wonder if Naslund increases our chances in signing Forsberg in Februrary

You're right...we should be putting Kalinin with Rosi, and dropping Girardi to the 3rd pairing.

Been hearing a lot that Redden is more comfortable with a stay-at-home defenseman.

To be honest, I like Redden-Staal, Rosy-Girardi, Kalinin- (hopefully Mara).

Rosy benefits from playing with a steady stay-at-home type a la Girardi, imho.

No no, I think you misread me, I mean bringing Naslund into to help lure Sundin here. Its no secret that they are good friends, and Sundin was looking at Vancouver because of Naslund.

Renney doesn't think so. And I'd bet that the majority of GMs and coaches would disagree.

Statistically speaking, last year in the AHL Correy Potter and Brian Fahey were very close.

Fahey 14-23-37 +13 123PIM 6'1" 216

Potter 5-27-32 +33 102PIM 6'3" 205

both Right hand shots.

Although I suppose one could argue that a +33 on hartford means a lot more than +13 on the wolves.

Marek Malik might argue that. Wherever he is now.

Here's the kicker though:

Pock 7-37-44 +15 63PIM 6'1" 210 - Left hand shot

Just a note that Naslund can play RW if needed. He's played quite a bit of RW over the past few seasons.

The way i see it
Drury - Gomez - Zherdev
Naslund - Dubinsky - Dawes
Korpikoski - fritsche - callahan
Voros/Byers - Betts - sjostrom

redden - staal
rozsival - girardi
kalinin - mara

lundqvist - valiquette

sc: Voros/byers, orr, potter/pock

I see prucha being dealt, we are just too small a team and he makes a decent amount of money

I don't think we stack that top line w naslund because than teams just focus on that line, I also want dubinsky with someone who can score some goals and take pressure off him and dawes can score and create plays as well

very young and fast team, i see mara coming back and thats what the rumors are as well

the best part of all these lines is, all the players like to shot the puck.....

dont think yelling shot the puck will be an issue this year...

I highly doubt that Drury will be playing wing. I think that was the plan if Jagr re-signed (as Jagr would play with Dubi and that would make Drury either 2nd line wing or 3rd line center).

I love the top line of Naslund Gomez Zherdev. Yeah, it puts Z on the top line, but he's not THE GUY on that line. He's the 3rd guy the opposing defense would look at, and that would take off a load of pressure. Gomez even came out and said that if he was playing with Z, it would be up to him (Gomez) to make it work.

On the second line, Drury is at the center spot, and the wings are up for grabs I would think (between Prucha, Dawes, Callahan, Korpikoski, Fritsche and Sjostrom)

3rd line has Dubi at the pivot, with most of the same crowd fighting for wing spots.

4th line has Betts in the middle, with Orr, Voros, Rissmiller, Hollweg competing for wing spots.

I'd guess that Korpedo starts the season in Hartford (as the first call-up, along with Anisimov).

I'd roll with:

Naslund Gomez Zherdev
Prucha Drury Fritsche
Dawes Dubinsky Callahan
Voros Betts Orr

Roszival Staal
Redden Girardi
Kalinen Potter

Rissmiller/Sjostrom/Hollweg/Pock


If Shanahan is signed, I think Prucha gets moved to 2nd line RW and either Fritsche or Sjostrom don't get signed. I think if any trade happens, it would be Hollweg, Orr or Sjostrom. We have too many 4th liners and there are guys is Hartford who could hold the fort in case of injury (Byers/Moore/Jessiman)


OK, ignore these lines. I really like these ones from Janerixon:

The way i see it
Drury - Gomez - Zherdev
Naslund - Dubinsky - Dawes
Korpikoski - fritsche - callahan
Voros/Byers - Betts - sjostrom

I would switch Dawes for Prucha and Korpikoski for Dawes. Korpedo can still improve in the AHL and come up in the event of inevitable injury.

LW. He's a better LW for sure, but in a pinch he can play RW. He was a RW with the Sedins, and sometimes with Kesler. Played a lot of RW under Alain Vineault. I'm liking the combination of Naslund - Gomez - Zherdev though. 1 thing I think you guys may be surprised about is that Naslund's passing ability is pretty underrated.

I can see naslund-dubi-prucha, but i think dawes is really going to come into his own if he plays with naslund and dubinsky, i see him as their straka... he just needs to get a bit better defensively

I think korpedo is ready, just my opinion

as for drury, i just don't want to see naslund-gomez-zherdev, too many eggs in one basket, you shut down that line and all you have to do is focus on drury and dubi
