Adam Rotter: Right now Carl Hagelin is on one of the Rangers two “second lines.” His line and the line of Mats Zuccarello, Benoit Pouliot and Derick Brassard have around the same even strength averages over the last three games, between 13 and 14 minutes a night. Alain Vigneault distributes ice time much more evenly than John Tortorella did and the Rangers have enough depth at forward now to allow them to have a top-nine and not just a top-six. The determination of which line is really “the second line” is ultimately determined by which players the opponent puts out against them. One line will face the opponent second line and second pair defense and the other will face the third line pairings. Either way, both lines have enough talent to be able to create positive matchups against lesser players.
