Anthony asks: ” If the season started today with the moves the Rangers already have made this offseason, how do you see the lines being made up?”
Adam Rotter: It’s a tough question as the Rangers are still in the process of forming their roster and they have an abundance of left wingers. Marian Gaborik is out for the first few months so there is a hole on Brad Richards RW, but if the season started today, I think the lines would be:
- Carl Hagelin, Brad Richards,Ryan Callahan
- Chris Kreider, Derek Stepan, Artem Anismov
- Brandon Dubinsky,Brian Boyle, Taylor Pyatt
- Mike Rupp, Jeff Halpern, Arron Asham
Brandon Dubinsky and Carl Hagelin could easily swap and Anisimov and Pyatt are left wings and not right wings, but this is how I see the lines coming together right now.
