Do we really believe that Nash-Richards-Gaborik is a better top line then the Hags-Step-Nash line???
Only positive I can see is that maybe Gaborik gets going, but i'm not holding my breath on that one.
See so many negatives. Who will go into the corners and get the puck? ISn't Nash more of a natural on the right wing? Why can't we just have Nash, Gaborik and Cally on three different lines and our top 3 right wings?
I don't and never liked front loading all of our "best" players on one line. Balance and rolling 3-4 lines constantly is how you win in todays NHL.

I think you'll be better off keeping your head in a textbook than watching this game.

If I only had a nickel for every last second goal ruining Hanks shutouts.

Brad Richards, Marian Gaborik, Ryan Callahan, Carl Hagelin, Derek Stepan and Nash comprise the Rangers' top-six forward group. Removing them from the equation, the Rangers have received a total of nine goals from their forwards in 27 games, with two of those nine goals coming on the power play. Taylor Pyatt has four goals, but three have come during his brief stints while playing as a top-six forward, with the fourth coming on a power play.At 5-on-5, the Rangers' bottom two lines are not winning the scoring battle on most nights...

...Richards had two goals and four assists in his first five games; he has two goals and six assists in his last 20 games. Gaborik had five goals and three assists in his first five games; he has three goals and six assists in his last 22 games....
....This season's team has all the ingredients for a club to be more aggressive, to take more chances and be able to win. The Rangers' top-six forwards are responsible defensively and among the most talented and quickest in the League. Coupled with a strong group of defensemen (that was much stronger before Staal's eye injury) and a reigning Vezina Trophy winner in Henrik Lundqvist, opening things up a little more would seem to make sense.
While the Rangers do their share of forechecking, usually they are content to sit back and wait to capitalize on the mistakes of their opponents in the neutral zone, especially once they secure a lead. It's a philosophy that almost always pays dividends against lesser opponents, as they are the teams more likely to commit costly mistakes. But against teams that are less likely to cough up the puck on their own side of the red line, that strategy has not been working.

The Rangers are 10-2-1 against the six Eastern Conference clubs currently outside of the top eight. However, against East teams currently in a playoff position, the Rangers are just 3-10-1, with two of those wins coming in January.

Just some wonderful numbers from the NHL.com article on why we're underperforming.

This thread needs Rockstar McDonagh and Pelvic Thrust Girardi for maximum positive energy. Please keep Naked Beaver out of it.

Ha I was thinking that. But for two hours of class, going over a SWOT analysis and strategic planning it'd be nice to have something else to glance at once in awhile. I have gamecenter but its obviously going to be blacked out.

Swap Richards/Stepan and the lines are perfect. Nash on the LW makes sense, hopefully he isn't COMPLETLEY USELESS on the left side like Gaborik..

Nevermind what I said about the lines. Gaborik on the left of Richards with Nash on the right is not what I want to see.

Why cant we do:

Hagelin-Stepan-Nash
Pyatt-Richards-Gaborik
Miller-Boyle-Callahan

Glancing at hot Coeds every once in awhile might be better but they may be as lacking in analysis and strategic planning class as Ranger goals tonight..

Ryan Callahan is a 3rd/4th liner, in the sense that he has produced as many goals as our third and fourth line (together).
