This is Freddys thread

Of all the guys on the bubble Freddy has stepped up. He's been a standout in these last few games. Well done.

Sjo - Betts - Orr

in general continue to impress me.

yeah, he is DO-ING it. Seems like Tom is big on him, Pk + shoot out. He is one of the bubble guys that is now OFF the bubble & permanent IMO. Shoe is the only real offensive threat on the 4th line w/Betts & Orr. Gotta love his speed & decent hands.

He is fast, defensively responsible and can score the odd goal.........I like how Renney has confidence in throwing that line out there at anytime

As much as I think Sjo has some good offensive ability, right now he is helping make our Checking line dominant, why would you mess with that. Just because he can score some doesn't make that part of his game important, its icing on the cake. Look at Pandolfo, he gets decent points, but the fact that he is so good defensively means that the goals really don't matter (or wouldn't if his offensive minded teammates didn't suck).

i agree...as long as he stays in the lineup as, for me at least, he has been the bubble player who has shwon the most....there arent many players who could make that 4th line offensive and stay defensively responsible.....i mean the guy does get quite a few minutes as it is because of his pk time...

Betts has a decent shot, but his job is not to score its to not let the other team score.

i liked sjostrom as soon as he came over here and played vs the flyers @ MSG , ever since than i knew he'd "fit the sjo" yea i know corny

Was at the Toronto game last Friday and was upset to see him picked as the last shooter but was happy with the result.

gotta laugh.

at the end of camp many were saying sjo was the odd man out. many had him sent down. he hadnt done much in camp.

just goes to show what pure speed can do. the guy flat out flies. he has decent hands and a motor that doesnt stop. hes great on the pk too.

id keep him right where he is, his speed balances out orrs grit. the 4th line is doing well so far. lets keep it that way.

bravo freddie.

Freddy has been great in the early going and I'm glad to see it! I get goose bumps when I watch his shootout goal against Toronto, nice friggen move!

He's been good, for a guy getting 11 or 12 minutes a game.

Sjo Betts Orr have been a solid fourth line. They won't score, but they do a solid job of keeping the puck in the opponents zone

I disagree. I dont think they will challenge Heatly - Spezza - Alfie for dominant O-side contribution, but they already have 10x the mojo of the 4th line last year

I think Freedy gives the line more confidence that they are actually a threat

Freddy has been very solid this year. His speed is a great asset on the fore check and on the PK. Nice SO player as a bonus as well. I remember his scoring on the same move on a semi breakaway against MAF last year.

I'm personally hoping they keep the three headed monster for the top 3 centers, and Korpikoski replaces Betts in the middle of the 4th line..

I like Betts, he's a good role player and defensive forward/PK'er, but I think Korpikoski can do all that and with more offense.

Sjostrom-Korpikoski-Orr would be a better threat (as far as 4th lines go..)


But this is Freddy's thread, so I'll add that Freddy has done very well after a poor start to camp. He and Orr seem to be getting really good at reading eachother off the forecheck and the cycle..

Last year, everytime I saw the 4th line out there, I did one of these and could barely watch the game. So far this year, they've been pretty exciting to watch.

Where does Betts play? Betts has shown the spirit of the warrior many times for the Rangers. Korpi projected talents should have him on the 3rd up or in Hartford getting further BIG minutes of development.

I love Sjostrom's style of play. He kind of makes up for wasting a draft pick on Al Montoya and hey he's probably more valuable to the Rangers than Al. Then again Al was drafted when we thought we had "no goalie" in the system.

as long as we let him do what he does best. skate fast and play an aggressive forecheck game, hell continue to do well.

as soon as we try to promote him to a more skilled line, hell stop being useful and that will weaken out 4th line.

as of right now, he owns that spot on the 4th line and the occasional shoot out chance as well.

Was gonna start another thread on the 4th line since they've been so good, but will just bump this one instead.

I think they'll definitely chip in offensively. I'll predict about 25 points for Sjostrom, 15 for Betts, and the biggest surprise will be about 5 goals for Orr.
