Brassard might have chemistry with Nash. see if it works. they did play on the Jackets for a bit.. Clowe and Richards and Miller might work. Clowe can do the dirty work for Richards. Zuccarello Stepan Cally has skil speed and hustle...
Does anyone else find it funny that Nash is now on LW? Torts is a dummy and Gaborik should of been on RW all yr.........anywho that ships sailed and I like the current lines. Would like them even more if they make the playoffs and Dorsett gets back for the final few games of the year
Nash, Stepan, Callahan - dandy, just keep them rolling
Clowe, Richards, Zuccarello- BR needs a guy like Clowe and Zuke needs top 6 min
Hagelin, Brassard, Boyle(eventually Dorsett) - I actually think this line can score
Pyatt, Powe ( eventually Boyle), Asham- just keep the puck in the other teams end
On D if Moore can play RD and Staal comes back healthy the last week of the season its real nice
Del Zotto, Stralman
spares Hamrlik, Gilroy, Eminger (I actually would resign Eminger next yr, others let go)
as a side note next yr I think they can move Pyatt out, Rupp got traded so hopefully they can get a pick for Pyatt and then a guy like Kreider , Miller , Fasth step in. Likely 2 of those 3
Has anyone looked at the CT Whale lineup? Wow that teams had depth which is great for the Rangers future. Makes me feel better about not having early picks next yr. Keep signing College kids like they have btw.
Scratches: Boyle, Powe, Asham (dump Pyatt down a hole and forget about him)
If we hadn't burnt that first year off Miller's ELC, then next year would only be the first year of his contract and we could slot him in the year after that after amnestying Richards or letting Brassard walk/trading Brassard. As is, this creates something of a logjam. Miller really would benefit from some serious time in Hartford too.
I know it's all a pipe dream since Torts would never slot that many kids into the lineup anyway, but those could be some nice lines next season. Hrivik and Lindberg are both two-way guys who might be able to play the defensive roles quite well. The top six is experienced and talented. And that third line has the potential to be dangerous.
When Dorsett comes back, he's a much better option at 3Rw than Boyle is. You guys are underratig him. He could play that role rather well. Almost like an Avery/Prust skillset where he can play 3rd line minutes effectively with two skilled guys. It's a defensive role.
