Vrana is practicing on line 2, they broke up the Guelph line and Bertuzzi is back to line 1 and Zadina to line 4.

I'm really losing hope for Zadina - he doesn't seem to have any skill at placing a puck in traffic, whether that is a pass in traffic or a shot on goal anywhere other than the goalie's chest.

i read something talking about zadina "excelling" on line one.  what?  excelling at what?  because he scored one goal the one time he ever comes inside and shoots at a screened goalie instead of his usual drfit outside and shoot at the goalie's chest?

i dont think he excelled at all on the top line, i thought he was replacement level.  

i havent lost hope with zadina, but i still dont see it with him yet.  when he starts shooting accurately, i'll get excited.

from wiim boards:  would you do bert for lafreniere and picks?

ummm....i dont think the rangers would ever do that even if lafreniere has underwhelemed to this point.

i was hoping florida would get stupid and do luddell for bert but....dare to dream i guess.

I knew exactly what the responses were going to be to my post 😂

 

I hope Vrana gets cleared to actually play

would you ever take raymond off line one and out vrana on it next to bert and larkin?  that's a ton of speed and a puck chaser on the top line.

Ya I can't see the Rangers doing it even if it makes them better right now.

It would be tempting but I would be worried about messing with Raymond.  Vrana's speed and shot probably plays anywhere in the top six.  He'll probably have some growing pains over a longer stretch of time but he seems like an exciting player if given minutes and an offensive role.

I honestly want to see Vrana play with Zadina (I know I know) just because they allegedly play well together in international play.  But honestly I'm excited to see Vrana anywhere in the lineup hopefully soon.

Oesterle - Hronek could be an adventure.  Blash really likes Erne on line 3 no matter what.  I thought Rasmussen looked much better at wing so I was hoping he could stick there.

Discord is down and work is slow so apologies if I post a bunch today!

My 2 cents on the Blueliners would be:

Seider-Staal (Staal can stay at home on D whilst Seider carries the play. But really, we need a better player for 1st pairing with Seider. I'm ready to dump Oesterle, drop Staal to 3rd or 4th pairing, and give Sebrango/ or McIsaac a shot at pairing up. Let's see what they can or cannot do (basically, let's get ready for 2022-23). Or maybe it's Juolevi here... but, I start him out with kid gloves before considering anything more).

Hronek-Leddy (offense only tandem but... why not?)

Lindstrom-Juolevi (I just wanna see what he's got...)

Stecher-Oesterle

I am interested to see how long of a leash Blashill gives Vrana.  He just had a really rough shift in the d-zone where he kept looking to fly the zone instead of being available for a pass or supporting.  Kinda just led to the second Coyotes goal because it led to a sloppy change and being hemmed in their own zone.  It did look like Vrana - Suter - Zadina got a shift together though.  Names got dropped to line four with Veleno and Gagne at least for now.

lindstrom gets the stick knocked right out of his hands and then zadina stands there while chychrun walks right last him to knock in thr rebound.

embarassing defense.

It's why I wouldn't mind making a play for Chychrun.

But I don't think we have the right assets...

i wouldnt trade for chychrun.  he's an offense only defenseman having a terrible year and he's a free agent after this season, i think.

Yeah, I know your thoughts on him...

But he's not a UFA; in fact he's signed through 2025 I believe. Definitely not a FA which is why their asking price is so high and they're in no rush for a deal because they have time/ no pressure.
