Here are some moves I want to see:

Girardi - the first correct move to replace Kasparaitis

Immonen - waive Krog, he has been useless. Let Immonen center the 2nd line with Shanahan and Cullen. Immonen is responsible enough defensively to not hurt the Rangers even if he does not score.

Dubinsky - waive Orr, he is useless as well. Give Dubinsky a try as a 3rd line center. If that is too much of a responsibility for him, then let him play wing. But I think we need to give him a chance since we really don't have any depth at Center...if he gets some experience, he could at least become useful when one of our veteran Centers gets hurt.

My Lines:

Straka - Nylander - Jagr

Shanahan - Immonen - Cullen (this line looked good when Immonen played w/us)

Ward - Dubinsky - Hossa (if this line can control the puck down low, they can score)

Hollweg - Betts - Ortmayer


Tyutin - Ward

Rozsival - Malik

Pock - Girardi


Hall becomes a sub...we can try him instead of Ward on the 3rd line though.

Dawes - another possible call-up in case we need more scoring from the wings.
Good moves imo, but what would you want to do with Rachunek if he is not playing? Just bench him or move him for a prospect/pick?

To be honest, I actually think that Rachunek is the MOST useless guy we have. He is ok offensively, but he just hurts you so much defensively! He never checks ANYONE, he is often out of position, he just stands around there in own zone thinking about his next paycheck or something!

What would I do with him? I would WAIVE him as well...but I doubt that will happen with how much Jagr loves his Czech mates...

Blah, not sure how I forgot him.

Let me fix that (i'm sitting Ward):

Straka - Nylander - Jagr

Shanahan - Immonen - Cullen (this line looked good when Immonen played w/us)

Prucha - Dubinsky - Hossa (if this line can control the puck down low, they can score)

Hollweg - Betts - Ortmayer


Tyutin - Ward

Rozsival - Malik

Pock - Girardi

why the need for Cullen on the 2nd line? why not just put him on the third line and swap him for Prucha..

Jagr, et al.
Prucha - Immo - Shanahan
Hossa - Dubinsky - Cullen
H-B-O

Read the Shanahan comments in the article
If Renney can't be the last line of law, and can't stand up to Jagr, why is he coaching the team?

I know damn well if anyone tried to undermine Lindy Ruff in Buffalo, they wouldn't be on the ice, Briere or Drury included.

Do most 'Gers fans think Renney needs to be shown the door? Or are you getting a bit fed up with Jagr?

Melnyk.....You kill me! Prucha has been a Ranger for a whole year and a half, but some excellent numbers up last year, and is down to his final shot! Ridiculous......especially when you look at all the extended playing time Lundmark got here and gave NOTHING in return!

I think more people would say Renney needs to go before they would say Jagr needs to. Right or wrong that seems to be the majority of most posters feelings.
