I would say Boyle takes third line center, Rupp takes 4th line center and Avery takes 4th line LW.
Not a bad idea either. I really like how Boyle and Prust play together though. I see the Prust-Boyle-Rupp line getting as much, if not more, ice-time than whoever is on the third line, especially if we have the lead.
I am sure AA will be fine but for the record if he is out Boyle moves up to 3rd line C and Rupp is 4th line C. Avery is winger. Buy yea Steps 2nd line for sure. He may be there even with AA in the lineup who knows
Bruce Berlet has written about Stajcer going back the OHL
Johnson, Cam Talbot and rookie Scott Stajcer apparently will vie for the two spots in Hartford after Rangers director of player personnel Gordie Clark said during the prospects tournament that the 6-foot-8 Missiaen would be going to Greenville to see how he develops. Clark and Schoenfeld also have said Stajcer is scheduled to return to the Ontario Hockey League as an overage junior after missing much of last season because of hip surgery in November. But a strong first game in the prospects tournament and an impressive camp could put Stajcer in position to end up in Hartford and make Johnson or Talbot trade bait.
“Stajcer had a tough year last year (injury-wise),” Schoenfeld said, “so we want to see him really have a successful season and play a lot, and we think he will. But you never know what can happen (in training camp).”
