    2 things.

    1. We're gonna suck, so why not Fast on "top" line?
    2. We desperately need a right shot forward.

    In a different thread, I mentioned that Fast does the little things that could make life easier for some of the young kids, including forechecking, good defensively, gets open, etc. At the same time, it could give Buchnevich or Chytil some time with a pair like Zibanejad and Kreider and hopefully develop their offensive side of the game

    But that’s the play that can help any line, especially when games/goals aren’t make or break.

    I would try Chytil with K and Z at some point of the season, either Zib or Chytil on the wing. That could be deadly line. Problem is it would fuck up the rest of the lines tho. Cant see Buch playing with Hayes going well, where do zuc play?

    Maybe:
    Kreider - Zib - Chytil
    Zuc - Hayes - Buch
    Spooner - Lias - Fast
    Vesey - Names - (someone not names Mcleod)

    Thats a bad lineup, but the top line would be funny to watch.

    Buch/Zib/Kreider is the only combination that looks remotely like an actual 1st line
    I’d like to see Chytil with Zuc and Names as they’ll put the puck on his stick in decent positions
    Hayes and Spooner looked decent together. Hopefully Meskanen puts out in camp and joins that line
    Vesey/Lias/Fast as the 4th

    Tend to agree with this...But if playing with Fast makes Zib and Kreider more comfortable being creative and aggressive on the forecheck because they depend on him, then he can be successful there. He doesn't need to carry the puck with those two, and that's his biggest weakness, so it could work long term.

    I think Fast's best spot is on a 2b/3rd line with Hayes and another winger who can score, say, Vesey or Spooner. That way he's with enough talent to be on a line with some scoring productivity but being used in a defensive role, which is where he's most effective.

    Names has never been much of an assist guy throughout his career, counting on that changing in this scenario? No doubt tough to build lines with the sizable gaps and unknowns.

    Not necessarily, but he’s a good support player and moves the puck well, so I think him and Zuc could be good line mates for Chytil.

    When you have no first liners, you need depth.

    That seems to be the approach, again

    In this case, based on time on ice, he's got his third and fourth lines inversed. Maybe even his second and his fourth.

    This, to me, was less hierarchy and more about combinations.

    He has those two lines backwards. The wingers might move around a bit, but it's probably going to be:

    1 - KZB
    2 O - Spoon - Chytil - Zucc
    2 D - Vesey - Hayes - Fast
    4 - Namest - Lias - Meskinen

    If the Rangers were unwilling to commit to Hayes long-term, it means they don't view him as more than what he was last year. So they'll probably lean on him heavily for DZS this year, especially if he's on a line with Fast. That's not really a top-6 line, but when you've got a 2nd line with Spooner and a 19 yo C, they're going to get heavy OZS. It's not like a Kesler/ROR 2nd line that can handle matchup duties.

    I'm not ready yet. I just look at the projected lineup and I'm not too excited about the season starting. My normal optimistic outlook has us out of playoff contention by January. Watching a season hoping for growth and development is nice and all but wins is really all that matters in the long run and this season is going to be devoid of a lot of those.

    Development is the win for this team.

    The box score and standings matter little.

    Same here the first pair doesn't play much D.

    Hoping for players growing throughout the year.
