cheraponov will make the team next year out of training camp.......if the rangers resign jagr to a 1 year deal....he will want to play with his idol....plus the fact that the rangers will be losing at least 2 of their top 6 wingers, there arent many players that could take over those reponsibilities, and cheraponov has the skill to do so
korpikoski(not ready for 1st or 2nd line)
moore(center, but i think he is more a third liner)
dawes(if he is resigned(?) he would be one of the only players above cheraponov)
parenteau(good player in the ahl but many say he wont be given a shot)
byers(not 1st or second line material)
if i missed anyone please let me know....i just dont see the rangers having many other options....
Hossa(if he is resigned shouldnt be on the top two lines)
callahan(possibly an option for second line but he needs to start scoring more)
prucha(same as callahan)
They could sign a high scoring winger as well. Personally I wish they could sign a winger on a 1 or two year contract just so we don't have a team comprised of all players under 25 bascially. We need some vet leaders.
