Drury with Shanahan is not working.

With Dubinsky's better play he should be moved up with Shanahan and Avery.

Don't need to make any adjustments, just make the third line the second line and the second line the third line.

aka play Avery Drury Shanny for 10 minutes on ES
and Dawes Dubi Pru for 18 minutes on ES

you're right that Drury isn't working too well with Shanahan, but I don't think breaking up our best line to move Dubinsky up would be a smart move.

I agree.

Or if anyone its Shanny who goes to the third line and promote a kid to the 2nd line wing

Shanny still has the experience/leadership and a shot but he is ultimately an aging power forward with no power left.

The better parts of his game are missing

There are lots of guys with nice shots who can position themselves in the soft areas just waiting to be setup.

Cheaper younger guys.

Sorry Shanny. I love you but the truth is what it is

Our best line? They are not doing anything accept score late in games. Drury came up big two or three times but besides that they are not working well with each other.

Shanahan was injured and did not even play with Drury. Drury played well with Dawes and Prucha early in the season and Dubinsky is bigger and scrappier and would fit better as a left hand shot with Shanahan.

Just a thought but with calgary playing for the cup this year and bringing in cujo i think is a good sign they want to really go for it this year, and their moving Tanguay rumor could NY send a package like Shanahan + Mara for Tanguay + Warrener??

My only logic to it is with them needing cash to sign Phaneuf we send them a good veteran package and a lil more size but importantly expiring contracts. In return we get some youth in tanguay and that chemistry with drury, and grit and snarl on that back end with warrener...does it work?

I kinda liked the Drury Gomez Jagr line.

Drury has been poor offensively this year, but playing well in other aspects. See how he would do with those 2 with some good players behind them.

Maybe put Drury on the wing, move down Shanahan to the 3rd line and put Dubinsky at 2nd line center. I mean nothing seems to be working so you might as well try something, it's not like it could be any worse really.

It might not make Jagr happy but what about swapping Shanny and Straka? With Shanny on the 1st line it gives Gomez and Jagr the finsiher they need, while Straka is the playmaker that can set up Drury's shot from the circles

the problem isnt drury....its the fact that shanahan isnt fast enough to keep up and whenever he has the puck he loses it and is too slow to get it back.....

shanahan needs to be traded and dawes should be moved up.......and callahan should be recalled

incorrect..today's goal by dubinsky has been the only goal scored by his current line in the 3rd period since they've been put together

I agree, Shanny is not doing enough to be on the 2nd line with Drury.

Why destroy Dubinsky's confidence like that? The third line has been playing well, developing some chemistry and has started putting pucks in the net. Look at how many centers have been tried and failed on Shanny's line over the past two years. Cullen, Immonen, Betts, Straka, Gomez, Drury. Gomez was the only one who showed any sign of being able to withstand Shanny kryptonite, but for now he's more valuable centering Jagr and Straka. Leave Dubinsky with Prucha and Dawes until they stop producing.

Gomez def worked btwn Shanny and Avery, Gomez seems to work with anyone he centers actually. Does Gomez have a twin brother we can throw on the second line?

Shanahan looks like he is skating in quicksand.When he has to stop and start,someone needs to wind him up and point him in the right direction

5 on 5,Shanahan is lost

SHANNAHAN seems unfortunately to be only effective on PP and PK when the game is slowed down. He is serious liability in even strenght and it is NOT only his fault.

Well Shanny is forced to play with Drury. Drury the forechecking master who is ONLY effective when playing (1.)dump and chase (see his buffalo line with Zubrus and Kotalik) with occasional outburst of speed in quick transition (2.).


as for 1. Shanny stopped to be effective on forecheck in dump and chase years ago. He is unable to chase anything at this age and speed and complete lack of grit along the boards.

as for 2.he simply doesn´t have enough energy and speed to play this style all game


so Shanny and Drury is simply worst possible fit. They need to be separated but how to do that without affecting other lines?

Drury seems better off being a sniper, than being a creator.

Putting him with Jagr could be an interesting situation. Then having Gomez set up Shanny would also benefit.

The Rangers gave Shanahan a raise over the summer from $4 million guaranteed to $2.5 million in salary and a slam dunk bonus of $2 million for dressing in 10 games.Not to mention the $800,000 in playoff bonuses
