Proposition: Break Up The Nylander Line

This line has been figured out. They can no longer get any offense going. Maybe if you spread them out amongst the lineup, the offense will also be spread out.

Jagr looks like absolute **** this year for the most part. Nylander is terrible 90% of the time. Straka is the only good player on that line most of the time. This line has to be broken up.

But this is a proposition for next season, this season is already over.

I'm at a loss of what to do. I want to call up some kids and play them. This team is just infuriating.

would have made sense after the first period, but the loss solidifies that we arent making the playoffs.

if im sather i try to trade vets for youth asap.

Have to, they haven't done **** in a while.

I say take Straka off that line and put him with Shanny.

Move either Hossa or Prucha up with Nylander/Jagr. Both seem to play better when with Jagr.

Hossa-Nylander-Jagr
Straka-Avery-Shanny
Prucha-Cullen-Orts
Hollweg-Betts-whoever

That's pretty balance and probably the best we could do until we get a legit #2 center

Hold your frigging horses. Before the Detroit game, Jagr had 9 points in 9 games on a cold streak. Nylander has 16 points in 14 games (and he supposedly sucks 90% of the time).

You're exagerrating more than a warmongering president.

I'm not even talking about this year anymore. It's too late. Renney had his chance to break up with that line after the "Come back" against Ottawa where he juggled the lines and they were working.

Unfortunatly, we will have to see this line again next season. So might as well break it up to give this team a better chance to win...although I don't think this team can win with Jagr leading it.

in all honesty, I don't care if they haven't played a single NHL game, I truely believe that the rangers would win more games if the kids from hartford were playing.

Prucha-Straka(Nylander can't win faceoffs any better)-Jagr
Shanahan-Nylander-Hossa
Korpikoski-Cullen-Callahan
Avery/Hollweg -Betts-Ortmeyer

And I'm ABSOLUTELY SICK of Rachunek and Roszival. Sure, they aren't as bad as Malik. But is that ****ing saying ANYTHING?!?! We shouldn't settle for mediocrity. Call up Baranka (if he's healthy). Play Girardi and Pock more. Bring up the kids, see how they do.

Tyutin-Ward
Pock-Girardi
Baranka-Lampman

Yay for people expecting more out of a team that was clearly destined to be in the position they are in right now. Almost every game we played foreshadowed what is now. I say just lower your standards and hope for the best. I think I'm alone on this one but as much as I'm pissed I'm keeping my mouth shut for now, especially since most of these rants won't change anything.

Agreed...

Prucha-Nylander-Jagr
Straka-Avery-Shanahan
Prucha-Cullen-Ortmeyer
Hollweg-Betts-Orr/Hall

There's other possibilities...but I think I'd try that 1st

I dont know why they refuse to call up Immonen to play 2n dline center, move Cullen to the wing somewhere, and keep Avery where he belongs....the third line.

Immonen CAN NOT be worse than what this team has right now. And he's not worse, because I've seen games where he has played.

Well seriously with Krog already here...and Orr/Hall...there's not much room right now. I think we can make something with this group if we play em in the right spots. I'd love to see Avery and Hollweg on the same line. In fact...a better possibility could be...:

Prucha-Nylander-Jagr
Straka-Cullen-Shanahan
Hollweg-Avery-Ortmeyer (SHUTDOWN LINE)
Hossa-Betts-Hall/Orr/Krog

You can even roll 4 every night with that group

I'm glad I didnt watch that NYR-DET game because I would've been going nuts in the 3rd period. Seriously, what does this team have to do to win a game!?!

Yeah, i do agree...break up that line, try to work something else out. Maybe Avery could add some scoring/toughness to the 1st/2nd line.

I wuold have no problem getting rid of Hall and Krog if it were to make room for someone from Hartford.
