Glad to see that 'invite only' rule is paying off around here.

Forgive me for assuming that you might actually be able to provide some sort of reasoning for your opinion other than 'because I said so.' I'll be sure to take you at your word from now on, oh wise one.

Yeah, Dawes with Gomez is nuts. I mean, who would want to put a young sniper with one of the best play making centers in the NHL!?

It's just crazy talk.

Naslund-Gomez-Zherdev
Dawes-Drury-Prucha/FA
Korpikoski-Dubinsky-Callahan
Sjostrom-Betts-Fritsche

Staal-Redden
Rozsival-Girardi
Kalinin-Mara

Hank
Vally

Extras: Orr, Voros, Strudwick/Fahey

If there's any chance in the world of signing Selanne I wouldn't hesistate to bring him for Prucha's spot and package Prucha and Rissmiller for some prospects or picks but if not then I'd go with what we have unless we can somehow trade those two for a better 2nd line RW (Vermette?)...

With Naslund and Zherdev taking up the first line you have 6 wing positions left......... As of now they will be filled by Dawes, Korpikoski , Prucha,Sjostrom, Varos, Rismiller and Hollweg on the left and Callahan, Orr, Moore, Jessiman, Fritche on the right side. Gotta think that Sather may try to move some quanity for quality at some point before opening night.

Dawes played very well with Gomez last year, has great hands and will easily score 20-25 goals in a full season, especially if he is playing with the same linemates. Dawes has also played with Drury and is simply more offensively talented than Callahan, so putting Cally on the 2nd and Dawes on the 3rd makes less than no sense.

Naslund - Gomez - Zherdev
Dawes - Drury - Fritsche
Rissmiller - Dubinsky - Sjostrom
Voros - Betts - Orr

Redden - Girardi
Rozival - Staal
Mara - Kalinin

Lundqvist
Valiquette

I think we should sign Shanahan and put him on the line with Drury.

Nope. I dont want them in there, but I think Callahan would be an extra foward.

So you would start Fritsche, Rissmiller, Sjostrom, Voros, and Orr over Callahan, Prucha, and Korpikoski?



Good thing your name isn't Tom Renney.

Drury-Gomez-Zherdev//The best possible enviorment for Zherdev. Dubinsky is so good that we can't keep him of a 2nd line, so Drury is moved to Gomez wing.
Näslund-Dubinsky-Korpikoski//1-way scores like Prucha, Dawes and Cally are bad fits on the RW position on this line. IT (the line) needs someone who can play in the corners and pass the puck; Dawes is too weak, Cally will not pass the puck, he is too egoistic, and Prucha is not a good fit in thoose areas, he is just to simular to Näslund. So that leaves me with options like Korpi, Anisimov, Voros, Fritsche and Jessiman. Its up for grabbs, but with my set up Fritz is designated for 3rd line C and Korpi will win the battle.
Prucha/Dawes-Fritsche-Callahan
Voros-Betts-Sjöström/Orr
Staal-Redden
Roz-Girardi//How the D is solved remains a bit of a mystery to me. Maybe Girardi will end up beeing paired with Redden, but I want to see a Staal-Redden pairing; but I am defenitly not sold on either Roz or Girardi beeing able to play in a left D role...

Honestly, Im not big on the line combo predictions. I wish I was good at predicting them, but I'm not.

There is one thing I see over and over again that just seems so obvious.

Colton Orr is going to dress. Renney will play him, he likes Orr and likes the idea of a true HW.

That way we can take our centerman who wins the most draws off center to wing. Makes total sense.

I think there is a good chance the Rangers are done for awhile. I'm positive at some point during the season the team will go out and get another scorer (to help bolster the run for the 8th spot) but going into camp my guess is these are the combos...

Korpikoski Gomez Zherdev
Naslund Dubinsky Callahan
Dawes Drury Fritsche
Voros Betts Rissmiller

Prucha-Sjostrom-Orr as extras

Staal Rozsival
Redden Girardi
Kalinin Mara

Lundqvist
Vally

Although I can see Korpikoski not starting the season in the NHL and taking half a year to get a spot...his salary is the one thing he has going against him..

remember this isn't the depth chart but this IS how i think the players will fit with each other...

I can see the Rangers Moving Callahan and Prucha and whatever else for a 2nd line winger, so my lineup is going to go with that assumption:

Naslund - Gomez - Zherdev
Dawes - Drury - Trade
Kopido - Dubinsky - Fritsche
Sjstrom - Betts - Vorros/Rissmiller
Hollweg/Orr

Redden - Staal
Rozsival - Girardi
Kalinin - Mara
Fahey

Lundqvist
Valliquette

Those are 4 lines that can fly and muck it up as well. I would not be afraid to have that 3rd or 4th line go up against a teams #1 line either.

I still think that were will be a trade coming before the start of the season because there are just too many NHL calibre forwards on the team. Also, Probably one of Orr or Hollweg will be dealt or demoted because I think an NHL team can only keep 23 players on there roster.

Trade Betts and Rissmiller for a draft pick.
Just wondering, but why would you want to trade probably one if not the best 4th line center in the NHL? Also, why would Sather trade a person he just signed 5 days ago as a UFA? I mean he's not a star or anything like that but that could go into the back of future UFA's minds when they think about coming to New York, that the team trades away players they just signed.

You're right, because Drury would never take draws while on the PK, the PP, important defensive zone draws, late in the game...
