Renney has never been shy about moving defensemen in and out of the lineup. If Staal is hurting you can bet that Potter will get to play early on this season. And if the Mara/Kalinin pairing have a bad game (i.e. -3) you can bet you'll see the #7 dman get a chance. With the top four being set I would expect that third pairing will be tinkered with all year. Staal/Rozsival, Redden/Girardi will play about 50 min a night so the third pairing is mostly going to play on the PK and early in games.

Some interesting comments in ESPN's Ranger preview:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/previe...e=nhlpre08/nyr

From Pierre LeBrun:

Quote:
Kalinin is an underrated player, one whose stock will rise in a bigger market (he previously played in Buffalo).
From Jay Feaster:

Quote:
Dmitri Kalinin may prove to be one of the best free-agent acquisitions of the summer.

Potter, but i want a 3 man rotation for that 3rd pair. get all 7 defenseman regular minutes. they should never sit for more than 2 games at a time, rotate em in, rotate em out. keep em fresh.

Mara, Kalinen , Potter rotate.............fair enough

If they are patient enough with Potter at the NHL level this year, and Sanguinetti develops properly in Hartford, I believe Rozsival gets moved next off-season.

Yep. Rangers may find themselves in the enviable position of having too many high quality YOUNG defenseman in a year or 2. *drool*

All things being equal--meaning if everyone on the blueline is healthy--neither are on the NHL roster to start the season. They're both fighting to prove they are NHL caliber defensemen, who can be trusted to play in the event of injury or other problems.

Exactly my logic.

I don't think I'd have a problem with either of them making the team--though I do think Potter's been a little better. As for whether he'll get enough playing time--to me NHL experience is always a good thing. We can send him down now and again if we need to--to get him back in game shape. Potter is 24 in any case--he's not that raw--he's already been through much development and I don't think we're going to be curtailing much of his upside. It should be kept in mind that if someone gets injured and Fahey is 7th and Potter is on the Pack--Renney is going to give Fahey the shot first--deserving or not.

I'm waiting until I see him play some games that count before I form an opinion on him.

Same with Redden.

You just can't judge veteran players on their preseason performance.

What's up with Mara? I haven't heard anything about him this preseason and haven't seen him play once.

Potter looks great. I agree that he's got a fight in him that's really exciting.

I'd actually sit Mara in favor of Potter.

Redden - Girardi
Staal - Rozsival
Potter - Kalinin

Voted Fahey, but I'd rather carry 6 defensemen for cap relief. Call one up on a long trip or something if we really feel it's needed.

Unless Potter has just a horrid game tomorrow I think he has locked it down for himself. How do you cut him or Korp if your Renney?

Both players you mention are waiver exempt.
So, it's easy: pat them on the back, tell them it's a numbers issue and that they'll get their chance if they continue to work hard.

the one thing i have noticed with potter that really impresses me is his lateral movement on the blue-line.....he does it with such ease and with such calm that its nice to see a young defenseman who can move laterally on the blue-line to get around a forward trying to block a shot.....honestly, i havent seen that since leetch on the rangers blue-line.......(not trying to compare him to leetch).....he has done it a few times and every time it's impressive

You'd rather have Potter rotting in the pressbox than playing in Hartford?

Carry 6 d-men. Potter the first call-up. When he's needed, call him up. When he's not, send him down.

Simple as that.

Ahhh I love this new team and it's commitment to youth already!

How do you tell Potter a journeyman defender beat him out for that spot?
