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.

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.

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

Miller Schneider

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.

I don’t mind that. I think Lemieux could be real good in the room with Lafreniere. He brings a lot of what the Rangers don’t have a lot of, bite, feisty, battles, hits, forchecks and has some offensive ability. Very important member of the third or fourth line.

Honestly, I think he can produce Fast’s offensive numbers across an entire season if he’s getting 12-13 min a game & not burried on the 4th line all season playing 8 min a game. Put him in front on PP2. Out of all our wingers going into this season...I see him as being the most able, of the non locked top 6 to play up & down the lineup. He can protect Panarin on L2 against gritty teams, have a nice sandy game opposite of Lafreniere, or be Pepe Jr on the 4th. He cuts 10 pounds & improves endurance...easy 30 point guy & perfect bottom 6 winger.

Tidbit from a Athletic article on teams prospect pools your NYR rated number one.



1New York Rangers

Pre-draft org ranking: No. 1
2020 draft grade: A+

I had the Rangers as the No. 1 organization pre-draft, and with a No. 1 pick, they added the most talent of any team in the draft. Safe to say, this one shouldn’t shock anyone. This is an organization that is deep in young talent, both in terms of players who can play high in the lineup and provide depth. This is a team that is now positioned to potentially win in the future.

1. Alexis Lafreniere, LW
2. Kaapo Kakko, RW
3. Adam Fox, D
4. Filip Chytil, C
5. Nils Lundkvist, D
6. Vitaly Kravtsov, RW
7. Brett Howden, C
8. Julien Gauthier, RW
9. Braden Schneider, D
10. K’Andre Miller, D
11. Matthew Robertson, D
12. Morgan Barron, C

I'm not so sure it is laughable other than maybe Zac Jones. Its a prospect list and a testament to just how strong the Rangers defenceman prospect pool is. The big question with Lindgren is has he peaked as a physical type? Does he have some offense to add and improve on? Don't think so, he's never going to be a power play guy. He's a grinder, penalty killing, shutdown guy, who will only marginally improve his effect on games as he matures.. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing the matter with that because he already has a pretty good affect on games, and he can play on my team any day. But Fox, Lundkvist, Schneider, Miller, and Robertson all have incredible all round potential as shutdown and special teams mainstays. I don't know if a team has ever had as good a pool of prospect defenseman as the Rangers do. Five potential not just NHL defenseman but impact defenseman.

Good takes, however Howden & Lindgren separated by 7 spots is too rich for me. We are very lucky, so who cares.

Well they should be separated by that much but Howden should be down at the bottom at this point, if even considered a prospect along with a couple other guys. He's just a bad NHL player at this point.

No doubt this is Howden and Gauthier’s make or break season, a slow or non productive start by either could be the prelude to a trade. Especially if Barron is making noise.
