Kinda like it too..And it provides for some flexibily for the first three lines if things don't work out....And all year I have wanted the HBO line that was our best line late last year (Pos against the Devils)

Probrably the best balance they could get from the group but I'd still put Avery on Jagr's LW because he just opens up so much space with his style and I think it's going to be the Jagr line that needs to really get hot and carry us more so then what they've been doing the last 15-20 games.

You have a point, but give Isbister some credit, he's been doing a good job in the offensive zone , especially in front, just wish his hands were better.

Seconded. Still though, this is a much better setup than I expected. So let's hope it works.

Isbister has played well and is busting his a$$ but Avery is a much more effective player at not only digging pucks and creating space but also his hands are significantly better.

Not trying to knock Brad but rather say that Renney should look to ride the top line because we need scoring bigtime.

I hear that....kinda thought maybe Prucha should be on the top line too, in Isbisters place. He doesn't create open space, but he definitely crashes the net fearlessly.

I'm not. I actually think these kids are providing added energy and passion to the lines....at least I know Dubi has!

Decent lines, but I would have preferred:


Isbister-Nylander-Jagr
Straka-Cullen-Prucha
Avery-Dubinsky-Callahan
Hollweg/Orr-Betts-Ortmeyer

I think that Dubinsky has played with Callahan in AHL, no? They would have Avery to do the dirty work. Also, with the Dubinsky line being the 3rd line here...there would be less pressure on the kids (Duby, Callahan)

If it were early in the season I'd agree. But we don't want two inexperienced kids on the same line this late in the season with alot at stake. There's not alot of margin for error right now to allow that combo.

I like these lines, it allows Renney to roll 4 lines all night long with a legitimate scoring threat each time, except maybe the 4th.

I would also swap Avery and Isbister. I dont see that Avery-Cullen-Callahan combo producing a ton of offense

Managing my expectations. Glad to see Cally might get some decent minutes.

Forsberg...

both Dubi and Immonen have centered Callahan this season. I believe Helminen was centering him to start the season. Callahan has excelled no matter who centered him.

Agreed. He's done absolutely nothing in the past 3 games. The first 2 he had very good games, each game after has gone on the decline.

Omg...Love affair with Brad Isbister. I'm getting tired of it. Again, nice player. But no where near a top 6 forward.

I agree, but I have a feeling the Rangers want to use Straka as a veteran presence on another line, and feel they don't have another left wing that they want up there.

I guess they feel Avery isn't a real good match (though Renney mixes him in there sometimes) and don't want to use Prucha up there for whatever reason (chemistry perhaps), so...what the hell.

Funny though. Prucha always seems to score at will when he is on a line with Jagr. Jagr seems to love setting him up all over the ice.

I think it's more that Renney wants to spread the wealth throughout the lineup. The problem I have right now is that NO LINE is scoring, so maybe his best bet would be to atleast find one line that can score on somewhat of a regular basis.

Should be:
Prucha-Nylander-Jagr
Straka-Dubinsky-Callahan
Avery-Cullen-Ortmeyer
Hollweg-Betts-Orr/Isbister

I have no problem using Straka as a veteran presence (I think it's moreso as a defensive outlet for Dubinsky), but why not have Isbister on that line too with Prucha getting the extra minutes with Jagr before Shanny returns? To me, that makes a bit more sense, not Isbister playing 16 minutes per game. He has two points in 10 NHL games and was HFD's 6th or 7th leading scorer (I may be making that up, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm close). Just seems odd to have him on a top line, especially while there are other options (heck, why isn't Dawes that other option? Compared to Isbister, he's at least earned it).

Exactly Balej..

spreading the wealth is a good thing...but you still need a top scoring line no matter how things are spread. Sometimes spreading the wealth can be counterproductive. I think that's the case we have here.

Straka-Cullen-Prucha is a downright tiny line, and theres no real defensive force on the third. Wouldn't want Dubi and Cally being overwhelmed.
