Rangers 1st Line LW

I remember seeing this last summer. I figured I'd start it off unless Inferno still wants to do it. He can take over if he wants just PM me.

Here's the idea. Once every morning, I'll post a poll that includes every option for a given positon. You guys vote on the player best suited for the role. Here it goes.

XXXXXXXXXXX | XXXXXXXXXXX
XXXXXXXXXXX | XXXXXXXXXXX

7TH DEFENSEMAN: XXXXXXXXXXX

GOALIES

I voted for Wolski. I'd start him out with Richards and Gabby to see if he finds chemistry, but if he doesn't it can be Dubinsky's spot to take. However, I'm not sold on splitting up Dubi-Artie-Cally just yet.

Unless Thomas surprises I think it starts with W2 at that spot. Dubi on the second line with AA and Cally.

Fedotenko/Rupp-Richards-Gaborik
Dubinsky-Anisimov-Callahan
Wolski-Stepan-MZA/Thomas/Weise
Fedotenko/Rupp-Boyle-Prust

Fedotenko and Rupp will both play with Gaborik and Richards and get about 12-15 minutes each a game.

They add a totally different dimension that that line that is needed.

Huh? What dimension does Rupp add? The ability to fight and stand in front of the net on your top scoring line? I know it might be needed to have a guy who can grind it out for BR and Gabby but if that ends up being the case then at least put a guy with skill and better skating ability there AKA dubinsky.

Fedotenko I'd be alright with but I cant possibly see him playing there too long. Just not enough to be a 1st line player.

Dubinsky as our 1LW.

That line will need someone who can forecheck and procure the puck. Wolski has the talent to play with Richards+Gabby, but he's not a puckhound. We need someone who can play in the gritty areas of the ice.

I like Wolski on our second line anyway. AA+Cally will open up the ice a bit for Wolski. Both are stellar defensively, so Wolski can really focus on providing some offensive creativity.

1LW is for Wolski's to lose but I think he's going to fit in.

Rupp is a VERY good forechecker. He played with Crosby on multiple occasions because of his speed, size and forechecking skills. He turns pucks over because of all of that. How do you capitalize on that? By allowing those turned over pucks to go to Gaborik or Richards.

He also isnt like Orr, or Brashear (Old version), the guy has some skills. Lines need someone who can do the dirty work and retrieve pucks. Rupp or Fedotenko. Leave the Pack line intact.

I went with Wolski. I think he'll thrive playing with Gaborik and Richards.

I really dont want to touch the Pack line but I just dont see Rupp playing on the top line. I think Wolski gets the nod and then if not him Dubi and Feds would be ahead on the list of consideration before Rupp is. Even Avery imo.
