Good interview here, this kid has his head screwed on right. What a incredible stroke of luck for the Rangers.

Alexis Lafrenière had signed his three-year, entry-level contract with the #NYR.

Think he starts 3rd line with Chytil pending a Buchnevich trade. This team still needs a 2C, Vet middle 6 winger, 5/6th Vet Dman.

The Rangers are done and what they have they will start the year with. Unless Gorton is Kreskin. They have zero coin or room to add. They are pretty much going to sign their RFA’s and start the year.

There is no fn way he starts on the 3rd line.

KZB & Kakko will get first dibs with Panarin & probably Strome. Nothing wrong with starting on line 3 & 1st line PP.

Lafreniere is a left wing, he’s dealing with Kreider and Panarin. So he is number three to start. Unless they try him on the right side or move another LW to the right side.

I think they will have to move Kreider to the right eventually. His game should be least affected by the move. Hopefully Kakko improves enough where they can trade Buch and move Kreider over. They will not have the cap space to keep everyone.

Something will have to be done after a feeling out process, of course dependant on possible trades yet to come, a seasoned defenseman probably high on Quinn’s wish list. . Buchnevich probably the easiest to move, which of course would force a left winger to move to the right side, and I agree Kreider’s straight speed north south game the quickest probably to adapt, and because it’s almost a foregone conclusion the Rangers are not moving arguably last years league MVP in Panarin and Lafreniere as a rookie will have enough on his plate just adapting and trying to hit the ground running in his first season.

That makes things easier. I was going to have my Hayes 13 changed to Fox 23....might be easier just changing name and leaving number.

I kinda want them to bring back Duclair.....

But if we ARE done, I would like to see

Kreider Zibanejad Buchnevich
Panarin Strome Lemieux
Lafreniere Chytil Kakko
DiGuseppe Howden Gauthier

Were you on crystal meth when you put Lemieux with Panarin and Buchnevich with Zibanejad? Stop doing drugs. Lemieux is a 4th liner. Buchnevich is a pussie. Lafreniere and Kakko are the future and need to be on top lines.

Before he even plays 1 game, people here have him on the 4th line or the next Crosby. That's amazing. And, I was thinking you know what let's see this KID play & see how it goes...

Lafreniere, Kakko and Chytil are the future and need to be on a line together. Could be our future top line. Let them develop some chemistry.

I don’t mind those lines Rob, if Lemieux struggles swap him and Kakko. Balance is good. Those are four good lines. I like the francophone connection with Lemieux and Lafreniere and expect them to bond on and off the ice, and would expect to really see them connect on the same line. Starting on a third line and getting PP time will lower the expectation for Lafreniere til he gets his feet wet. He’s going to be a stud but let him play with a little less responsibility and better matchups to start.

Yeah I mean you gotta figure to at least start the season they'll go with what they finished with

Kreider Zibanejad Buchnevich
Panarin Strome
Chytil Kakko

After that I just filled in the blanks with what makes most sense to me. I like the idea of Lemieux playing an Avery-like role creating space and taking attention away from Panarin..... if Fast can be serviceable in this spot, anyone can.

Ultimately this became my sentiment though, exactly. We could absolutely be looking at our future top line here. If the Zibanejad line doesn't warrant seeing the other team's top defenders, the Panarin line certainly will

That gives the 3rd line with our 1st rounders the other team's bottom pair OR garners more attention from the top 4

Rangers had the most success when they were able to ice a strong 3rd line

Zuccarello Brassard Poulliot

They were dangerous, and made the rest of the team that much more dynamic. I could see this kid line having the same effect.

The 4th line is simply what's left, but.... that's some nice size there. Could hopefully be a damn good energy line

I’d love to see Gauthier - Barron - Lemieux be the 4th line at some point this season

Kreider Zib Buch
Panarin Strome Kakko
Lafreniere Chytil Lemieux
DiG Howden Gauthier

Fox Lindgren
TD Trouba
Smith/Miller Johnson/Miller

Shesty
Georgie

I expect Miller to make the team at some point & expect Barron & Kravtsov to be mainstays for the following season. Does the team look like this when we are ready to win?
Kreider Zib Lafreniere
Panarin *Legit 2nd Center Kakko
Gauthier Chytil Kravtsov
Lemieux Barron Cuylle

Fox Lindgren
TD Trouba
Miller Schneider

I like these lines as well. Only exception is I would like to see Baron or Rooney be the center for the 4th line, and have Howden take the wing instead of DiGuseppe.

Blackwell can be a good option for the 4th line center as well

I don't think Howden has proved he belongs on the 4th line, let alone the NHL level. IMO he should be 13th or send to Hartford to start the season.

So, DiGueseppe instead of Howden, fair enough. Howden is only 21 maybe is game could develop better in the AHL.
