Jagr, Straka, Nylander are a solid group. I love Prucha…think he is a great, determined player. We’ll have to see if he can duplicate what he did last year….I think he’ll put some numbers up. shannahan I question. Solid, power forward no doubt with some great years behind him…but he also had a hell of a lot of support…I think he’s on the decline. why else would Detroit let him go….
Letting Rucinsky and Sykora go accounts for a good chunk of offense. Not sure exactly what their *****ulative point totals were for last year, but they produced.
Outside of that…what offense do they have really? don’t get me wrong. I LOVE this team…and the group of players they have…youth is the way to go…but I think they need some kind of balance. While I like Betts, Ortmeyer, Orr, Hossa and all the other third and fourth liners, they aren’t really going to be the ones counted on to put the puck in the net.
Not sure about Cullen and Hall..I don’t know enough about them at this point to see what they can do. Maybe Im just underestimating what they have.]]>
I do think the Rangers need to pick up one or two more scorers however…letting Sykora most likely walk and Rucinsky go will hurt. Does anyone know why they wouldnt want to resign Sykora?]]>
