When they won and got him I knew it would be trouble as they already had Panarin and Kreider at LW. While not broken he looks lost and that could be a result of the previous season struggles.

Honestly any of the other Bubble teams in the Lottery would have probs been better fits.

I’m just worried about his development. The Rangers are struggling with young forwards.

Kakko (make or break year)
Andersson (basically a bust)
Laf (not nearly a bust at all, but needs a good year)
Kravstov (lol)
Chytil (but looks like he could round the corner)

Their forward development track record isn’t doing hot as of late. And some of their better forwards are trade acquisitions.

If they weren't located in NYC, they would be one of the worst teams in the league right now

Bad management
Bad development/drafting record
Bad/big contracts

Hey but they do know one thing: trading like the big wolfs of Wall Street.

Panarin = UFA signing but hey we’ll count it
Mika = Brassard and some duster lmfao
Fox = Guenler, Soogards (STEAL)
Skjei turned into Schneider (solid imo)

Thankfully, Gorton was the one who did those 😂

Their cap situation is ridiculous too

Panarin+Kreider+Trouba+Shesterkin+Zibanejad (with extension) = Half their cap space

They're gonna have fun paying Fox, Lafrienere, Kaako and all of the other young guys

Man Tippett already has Draisaitl and Mcdavid playing together on the same line

Does he not understand what line depth is

They should not be on the same line period as while RNH is capable hes not a guy who can carry a line.

Well Hyman-RNH-Yamamoto is a good 2nd line but yes, maybe switch Hyman/Nuge with Drai

Honestly top 6 should be

Hyman-Mcdavid-JP
RNH-Draisaitl-Yamamoto

But tippet seems to want 1 line to generate offense

I heard somewhere that Mc and Drai will be on the same lines at home but different lines away, interesting

Either way you shutdown that line (crazy I know but some teams have done it) then Edmonton's offense falls to almost disaster levels.

Theres was a tweet explaining it with charts and stats and it was pretty funny. Basically if those 2 play together and you shut both down, their offense becomes Anaheim bad where instead of 3-5 goals you might get 1.

Dylan Strome's a healthy scratch tonight for Chicago

That normally means they are protecting him from injury in the event of a trade. Could also mean they just are scratching him. But based on earlier reports I think its related to him being available for trade

Either way tomorrow we could see him traded at the earliest.

That top line about to feel the wrath of Jason “shotgun dick” Dickinson 😈
I’m kind of glad that they made their team top line heavy. Shut that line down and our other three lines dominate theirs.

McDavid probably scores like 4 but I’m predicting these games to be like 7-6
