Kreider,Wolski,Christensen & others?

Clearly M.Sauer and Eminger will be getting priority when they return to health although the play of Bickell has been pretty encouraging as a #4/5 type of tough guy way.

What the team clearly lacks are extra speedsters in the HAgelin mould should spring time depth be needed. Not even giving any life to the B.Ryan rumor, what can the the NYR offer to swing a major upgrade
besides the obvious Wolski, Avery, Erixon, Zuccarello,Christensen,

and is it possible that they play top prospect KREIDER this spring if he finishes w/ college matches early?

Seems like the team has a decent batch of chemistry but could use maybe 1 more power forward...now if Kreider uses his size a bit and has the speed+shot already he might be the good 2nd/3rd line wing the team needs to elevate their offense from 3 lines to 4 lines

and then they just target one right handed cannon shot for the Right Defense. Maybe Yannick Weber of MTL or C. Franson of Toronto?

the NYR are at or near the top of the conference and league, why would they want to change anything ?

if it ain't broke, don't fix it

having players return simply makes the competition that much better for the playing time thats available.

Sauer clearly deserves a shot, which probably means that Bickel goes back to the AHL to get significantly more ice time.

Wolski will probably have to wait for an injury, I thought his chance had come tonight against the Panthers when Hagelin folded in the corner but he came back and took some shifts in the 3rd.

Agree with donpaulo. It ain't broke. You can already see the change in chemistry with Staal back - the first lines have contributed very little (compared to their usual) since their return with the exception of Richards' goal on Monday.

Think of it this way - with guys like Staal and Sauer back it's going to make other guys who are in danger of being sent down, play that much harder to try to keep their spot.

This is a good problem to have. Rangers have a very deep blue line and the more the youngsters get big league experience, the better of we will be years down the road. And if it turns out we have TOO much depth, well now some of those young defensemen with NHL experience have increased trade value.
