Betts out for 2-3 weeks

http://rangers.lohudblogs.com/2008/0...o-three-weeks/


so who's the shutdown C going to be now? how can we incorporate guys that have been sitting without having to call up someone like Moore from HTFD and then just keep those guys sitting? hope this doesnt bite us in the ass like i think it has the potential to.

Shoot. Hopefully he'll be back in time for the POs. I expect Moore to play in his spot in the meantime.

That sucks.

Our PK is really going to have to step it up.

This will be a real tough hole to fill the rest of the way.

God help our PK. Dru will need to work even harder on the PK now.

I really like Sjostrom. Does he play any center?

Who would of thought that "Jagr out for 2-3 weeks" would be a more welcome headline.

But really, Betts is a key player.

no, though now he ought to be tried on the PK and maybe even the 2nd line if renney plans to line-juggle (which worked for once) like he did last game

f .. this sucks because like we all said Betts is our greatest defensive forward, top top PKer and in my opinion top-3 4th line center in the whole league if not the best

Prucha played center at some point, didn't he? He might be a viable option.

I somehow can't imagine the rangers not getting Prucha back in the lineup

Prucha-Drury-Callahan
Sjostrom-Straka-Orrweg


edit: Sjostrom-Prucha-Orrweg could make for an energy line. Probably not a shut down line.

LOL, Nate, "Orrweg" is terrific.

Other guys will just have to step up. Everyone thought we were doomed when they let Ortmeyer go and we did just fine...having one of the top PKs in the conference. Sure, it sucks to have Betts out but it's not the end of the world. Really, what's going to happen...we give up 1 extra PP goal while he's out? I'm still more worried about our PP than our PK.

Wow this is really bad news. I don't see Hollweg playing center though, I bet they'll go with Prucha because he's at least got some NHL experience and I would bet the Rangers trust him more than Holly or Greg Moore to play important minutes.

This injury and circumstance is exactly why I was asking Squishy about the Hartford C's a week ago..Persoanlly, I don't think anybody (center) down in Hartford is ready to play the intense level of the next 10 games...Not like either Prucha and Hollweg can....Neither Prucha nor Holly are a great answer but they both have played C in the NHL before and both hustle their ass off all the time..I guess the Rangers will see what happens tonight...They got a few nights off after tonight, it's possible they can make do with Holly and/or Prucha along with giving the other three some double shifts...(I don't like breaking up the other three line)

Come on now.....this is Betts out for 3 weeks, not Gomex, Drury or Dubinsky. Moore might come up. and Betts may never get back his spot. Injuries beget opportunities. Now we will get an idea whether Moore can actually cut it or not. If not, Betts is back for the PO's.
