basically Pruchas been moved to the 4th, and Dupuis to the 3rd in his spot.

Stupid if you ask me.

i agree, but I guess Renney wants to see what Dupuis can do. Or maybe they are showcasing Prucha

If you are showcasing a guy, you are not putting him on the 4th line.

uh...

Prucha has scored all his goals in his NHL career from the left side and now he's being moved to the right side because he's more comfortable there? Hmmm. Shanny's a left winger, naturally that is, so why wasn't Prucha playing right wing earlier in the season if he's more comfortable there? Why did Shanny make the switch?

See, some things just don't make sense to me. Don't play Prucha, I don't care, but things just need to make sense.

doesn't surprise me one bit. i mean, it does make sense to have dupuis with cullen and orts. They could be a true checking/shut down line. I just Renney doesn't change Prucha's powerplay assignment and give the 4th some ice time love.

This is how Renney Counts

1
2
1
3
1
2
1
3
1
4

So based on that if he puts the lines out in order, the fourth line gets out once every 10 shifts

Forget about the lines

Another flu bug is rolling through the dressing room. It caught Aaron Ward on Sunday, Tom Renney yesterday, and Jaromir Jagr today. Not exactly ideal timing for a team that has almost no margin for error in the next few weeks. But at least the Rangers donít play until Thursday, and Jagr is expected to be fine by then
The flu hit in December and the team tumbled down the standings.Another outbreak of the flu.Doesn't the MSG health plan give out flu shots

I don'e like what's being done to Prucha here, but I'm going to reserve judgment on this.

Now about this flu thing....

Not really much of a surprise, dont get me wrong I dont like the idea, but we all knew that Prucha was going to be moved down before anyone else. I just hope that Renney keeps Prucha out on the PP unit that he has been on the last few games. Correct me if i'm wrong but while he hasnt gotten goals on the PP he has atleast help set up a few goals, somthing he wasnt given the chance to do earlier on in the season.

The one saving grace with the flu situation is the days off the team has untill they go to Carolina. There is a doctor's office around the corner from my job that has banners and flyers advertising flu shots, you think I should pick up a few for the Rangers?

Saw the Dupuis thing coming...not going to acquire him and stick him on the 4th line, just not how this Rangers coaching staff operates. IF Prucha remains on the powerplay, which he should, do not mind it as much. Dupuis better get his time on the PK though, relieving Shanahan of that burden.

I believe that Shanahan actually started as a center way back...

At any rate, Shanahan reportedly was the one who asked to be moved over to the right side early in the season, felt more comfortable there. Prucha played a fair bit of right wing too so I don't suspect that's an issue.

What I'm more interested to see is whether this means Prucha loses his spot on the Jagr PP unit. To me he was the perfect match, because he would go to the net and set up on the doorstep, something that Dupuis has already said he doesn't do. They may decide instead to put Hossa on the Jagr PP unit and move Dupuis to the 2nd unit, but I'm not sure that I agree with that either.

Have no problem with Dupuis on the 3rd line and expected BUT I think Renney is screwingthe pooch with moving Prucha down instead of Orts....

I guess Holly-betts-Orts and Dupuis-Cullen-Prucha just makes too much sense...Still, my bet is that we see these line before too long..

I don't mind the move as long as we actually keep rolling 4 lines and give the 4th line around 10-15 minutes of ice time per game. Our depth can really pay off this way.

But yes, keep Prucha on the PP so he can at least produce there

I figured this is what he would do.

Aside from all the stuff Renney says about Prucha feeling comfortable on the Right Wing and Dupuis ability to "match the other forwards" speed, I think Renney likes to welcome a player in and put him in a position to feel wanted instead of buried on the 4th line. Unfortunatley its at Pruchas expense.

Quite honestly, i wouldnt mind Ortmeyer or Prucha in that right wing spot.

The fact that you could mix and match these guys and you could go either way shows how these two deals have made the team deeper. Dupuis is gonna get his time to make the mark with the team, and hopefully with a lot of games down the stretch Renney will play his 4th line a bit more and Prucha could be a dangerous weapon down there.

Im not surprised and neither am in disagreement here.

the bottom lines could look like
Dupuis - Cullen - Ortmeyer/Prucha
Hollweg - Betts - Prucha/Ortmeyer

Krog seems to be out of the picture as well as Orr for now. This indicates a guy like Prucha is more available for a trade perhaps? If they can land a young center like Horton, the dynamic of the team wont be drastically as effected as it would a year ago or even a month ago. Some of you may not like these decisions by Renney, but it only indicates how these are becoming "good problems" to have.

Prucha may be the only player in the league who is on his teams #1 Power Play Unit, yet on the 4th line.

I thought that was the heart of the blog entry. I would have to assume Holt, right?
