I think he needs to sit and watch and find a way to relax.
I agree completely, ideally Id prefer miller to be sent down and pouliout to sit, but doing so would expose the rangers weak depth.

Can confirm that a player is playing the same way in a game regardless of whether it's seen on tv or seen in person

Dorsett isn't a LW, and no, they're not.

Would rather not get into the same stupid argument with you about Boyle as always, so I'll leave it at that.

Didn't you get the memo? You're a better, more intelligent fan if you go to the games. Doesn't mean you can't afford the ridiculously expensive tickets/transportation, that'd just be silly.

That line was good late in the Boston series. Nash pass to Kreider in game 4. GWG in OT.
Nash and Kreider also completely disappeared for large parts of the PO's, so its a bit wishy washy.

I'm extactic that Nash is returning so soon, I honestly thought he'd be gone until 2014.

Like has been suggested before, replacing Callahan with Nash, and move Callahan down with Brassard and Boyle sounds like a good idea.

I'd even try Dorsett with Cally and Nash, the guy has been solid lately.

Which leaves Pouliot - Boyle - Moore on the 4th line

I reluctantly understand your reality-bending thoughts that Miller and Pouliot are better offensive options, but please explain why Dorsett is a better 3rd line option

No, this is a John Tortorella mentality. It's horrible. Not every good top-6 player in the NHL makes other players around them better. I do think Zucc, being a play-maker and hard on the forecheck, can make a line better, but he still needs decent players as linemates.

I'm not opposed to trying new things, but let's wait until the old things don't work anymore.

When Nash returns, I like:

Kreider-Stepan-Zuccarello
Hagelin-Richards-Callahan
Boyle-Brassard-Nash
Dorsett-Moore-Whoever

Cant stand Pouliot or Mashinter - hope we find an upgrade there and the lineup might change.

Nash, at least to start, limits his minutes on the 3rd line and maybe gets Brassard going. If not, hes good enough to generate chances on his own. Do I like Boyle on the 3rd line? No. But I dont have a tin foil hat on and realize hes the best option.

I think Nash should play with Boyle.

Agree. Pou is a failed experiment, and while I don't dislike Mashinter, I think they can do better. Hopefully when Pyatt is healthy he rides pine.

How's Fast doing? Any chance he comes up and we try him on the 3rd line instead of Pouliot (or Boyle or whoever)?

I certainly wasn't expecting Poopoo to be good, in fact, I wasn't happy with the signing at all, but I certainly wasn't expecting him to be this terrible. Basically, he's like last year's beaver without the phantom points. Penalty quotas, giveaways, the whole nine yards.

So with Moore back:

Kreider , Stepan, Zuccarello
Hagelin, Richards, Callahan
Brassard, Boyle, Dorsett( on faceoffs Boyle then switch)
Pouliott, Moore, Miller
Mashinter

then Nash back send Miller down for more time

Mashinter is really just a cheap spare and if Pyatt was healthy he would go down

But wasn't he injured a while ago?

He seems to have a decent skillset for this team, btw. If he plays with Brassard and Nash I think he'll get an opportunity to make an impact.
