True, but they didn't look great in any of these games, and we are seeing the same troubling scenarios from last year. And this is the interwebs so we obsess

16th in the NHL in scoring last year and they've added Richards and Gaborik is rejuvenated. The scoring wont be as bad as years past imo. Not perfect, but not terrible either.

They were 16th in 09-10 with Gabby's monster season.

So what you're saying is that if we don't score goals, we won't win hockey games?

What I'm saying is that it's hard to win games if your letting in 2 goals and you can only score 2 goals!!!

If only MZA had enough speed to separate from defenders, that would be the difference maker. Doesn't seem to have it at NHL level.

As to grinder... a good one might be useful, but we need a real threat who can zip the puck in the net.

Ideas?

If Wolski isn't going to play in the first trade/scratch him and call up Zuccarello and give him a chance.

MZA is a passer more than a goal scorer. He's not slow at all, but not a bullet either, and cannot understand that he has to be to play in the NHL. He would do good with some fast linemates though. Hagelin is not a bad match. In SEL he played with Sundstrøm and Skroder on the top line for most of the time. Sundstrøm an excellent passer, Skrøder more of a sniper. Both have hockey IQ. Zuccarello is not the one to speed past the defenders, and if that was they expected it's just poor scouting. Put him along side someone else with some hockey sense, and preferably some finnishing abilities and he would work excellent. The Wolski Stepan Zucc line worked good last year, probably better than Zucc in some pack line constalation. Put him on the top line and he would produce 70 +/- points a season. PS! The national coach of Norway prompted Rangers to either bring him back up or trade him, as he was worried he would get injured in the AHL in the longer run, as he is too good for the league and an easy target for baboons like Mair. Couldn't agree more.

I disagree. Richards and Gaborik look good together and both have about a point per game. Other things will settle into place...and once another line starts scoring we're going to be netting 3 or 4 on average I bet.

Imagine how well the first line will play if the LW spot is figured out.

Well Avery should be on the team ofc, but i also thinks mza should get chance. He played well last year and this team isnt showing any will to win games
