    Don't worry, they won't be a pair by Thanksgiving.

    The Rangers don't have anyone out there tonight that can drive a line. If I'm Quinn, I'm breaking up Panarin and Zibanejad at the start at least.

    Kreider - Zibanejad - Buchnevich/Kakko
    Panarin - Chytil - Kakko/Buchnevich

    They shouldnt be. I'd rather see Skjei watching, and emulating what we expect* to see from Trouba.


    As I've been pressing all summer, I'd love to see DeAngelo-Trouba as a top pair.

    If that were Hank, Hayes would have scored.

    Panarin - Chytil - Kakko/Buchnevich
    Yup.

    I've been an advocate for

    Kreider - Zib - Buch (last season)
    Panarin - Chytil - Kravtsov (Russians, young guys, Panarin can carry the line)
    Strome/Andersson/Kakko (Depth scoring, good mix of skill and annoyance)
    Lemieux - Howden - Fast/Boo (havoc line)

    I wanted to see Panarin and Zib together, but I've changed my mind now after a few pre-season games and seeing the team shake out. Perhaps as some of these young guys get games underneath them, you can stack that top line and get more consistency from the others.

    If Kakko starts on the 3rd line, I don't think it'd be long before he's 1st or 2nd line.

    Sorry, should have mentioned - this is going for depth. I think you have 4 lines you can easily roll. Plus, with Kakko being so young, he doesnt need 24 minutes a night.

    Long season, dont need to kill everyone in the first 2 months.

    Quinn needs to take note PP puck movement. Panerin and Zib will help but they won’t be the savior. The defense again is shit and too many odd man rushes already

    Blew that by Shesty, he needs to be humbled a little and go to Hartford. Welcome to the NHL

    come on boys we can hold them under 60 shots, right?

    I would think you're right Pete on Thanksgiving just not too sure there's much else to change things on defense to sure things up.

    Shesterkin has been under fire all game long. He's only human. Hank's probably thinking "I'd have a 1.X GAA in the KHL too kid. Welcome to the Rangers, where we don't know how to defend the net".

    These guys are playing to try to not upset Quinn, instead of playing to win.

    Horrible sign.

    It’s the second game, I’ll be a little more worried if puck possession, physicality, compete level, and group defence doesn’t pick up after another couple of games. 1/2 to 2/3rds of these guys are on a bus to Hartford anytime soon.

    Exactly nothing against the kid but the NHL will humble you as opposed to the KHL. He needs a minimum full season in Hartford. Quinn or Ruffs defense sucks, not sure why Ruff is still here just same crap as last year.

    Not even mad at that, it's just the fact that that will be the third pair.
