 Projected Forwards - First Line
Wojtek Wolski Brad Richards Marian Gaborik
Two thirds of the top line looks set for the Rangers over the next couple of seasons, with the addition of Brad Richards to center Marian Gaborik.  The duo will look to establish some quick chemistry and go into the season as the Rangers' undisputed go-to guys on offense.

The only question that remains, is who will get the first opportunity to line up next to them.  The most logical choice appears to be Polish born Wojtek Wolski.  There was plenty of speculation that the Rangers would buy-out the remaining year on his contract, but the 25 year old will get one more reprieve and the chance to impress.

Wolski's offensive talent makes him a logical choice, but it's not his talent that's in question.  His work ethic has quickly disappeared in past seasons, but we're betting he'll show enough early on to get the nod to start the season...whether he stays there is up to him.

Perhaps another option under normal circumstances would be Sean Avery, but with Tortorella in charge, it's unlikely the Grate One will get much serious consideration unless Wolski falls completely flat.
 Projected Forwards - Second Line
Brandon Dubinsky Artem Anisimov Ryan Callahan
We projected this line last year, and they eventually united as the Blueblood Line - a testament to their development in the Rangers' system.  All three signed new contracts in the off-season, and look to be the backbone of the team for the next few seasons.  There's little reason to think they'll be broken up during camp unless there's an injury.

The only possible changes might come if the Rangers decide to move Dubinsky up to the top line to play with Gaborik and Richards, or if they decide they would rather have Stepan play second line center instead of Anisimov.  Ultimately we think that Tortorella will prefer to keep this previously successful line together.
 Projected Forwards - Third Line
Ruslan Fedotenko Brian Boyle Derek Stepan
As so often the case with the Rangers, the third line looks to be the players who don't really fit in with the top two lines.  The most obvious choice is that of returning UFA, Ruslan Fedotenko.  The Ukrainian native was consistent if not spectacular, but his history as a steady performer under Tortorella is likely a contributing factor to his return.

Center Brian Boyle signed up for another three years on the back of last year's breakout season that saw him score 21 goals.  It'll be hard for him to repeat, but his offensive success last year will get the inside track on the third line center spot.

With few options on right wing, it looks most likely that the Rangers will try last year's star rookie Derek Stepan in the open spot.  While Boyle figures to be the center to start with, there's always the chance that Tortorella switches things up, and switches the two.

If the pairing doesn't work, they may also be tempted to push Boyle down to the fourth line and use either Sean Avery or Mike Rupp on the right, but we're betting this will be the starting trio.
 Projected Forwards - Fourth Line
Brandon Prust Erik Christensen Mike Rupp
The addition of Mike Rupp and Brandon Prust give the Rangers a fourth line that has toughness and the ability to score a few goals.  Both figure to be in the starting line-up, it just remains to be seen who will center them.  With Stepan moving over to the wing, and Boyle moving up, it gives Christensen a chance at moving into the line-up.

This means there'll be no place for Sean Avery and Mats Zuccarello, without an injury opening a spot.  Avery will likely get the first seat, while Zuccarello's position is a little more complicated, and could see him traded or claimed off waivers if the Rangers try to reassign him to Connecticut.
 Projected Forwards: Reserves
Sean Avery   Mats Zuccarello
It wouldn't be surprising for the Rangers to keep two extra forwards on the roster to start the season.  Sean Avery is certainly a capable NHL forward with utility value, and will likely be the first call up should the experiments of Wolski on the top line and/or Stepan on the wing fail, with Christensen getting pushed out of the line-up if the latter happens.

Likewise Zuccarello provides Tortorella another potential option on the top-line to pair with Richards and Gaborik, should they be unable to develop chemistry with Wolski.
 Projected Forwards: Connecticut Whale (AHL)
Ryan Bourque Andre Deveaux Tommy Grant
Carl Hagelin Chad Kolarik John Mitchell
Kris Newbury Andreas Thuresson Dale Weiss
There's not a lot to be excited in this bunch but Swedish born Carl Hagelin might get a longer look at camp before being reassigned to Connecticut.  Last year's call-ups Chad Kolarik, Kris Newbury and Dale Weiss all look set to bide their time once again, while John Mitchell will be looking for a chance to return to the NHL following a late season trade with the Maple Leafs last year. 

Joining the queue will be Andreas Thuresson - acquired in exchange for Brodie Dupont this summer - and tough guy Andre Deveaux.  Neither are expected to be called upon to start the year.

Of the new guys, Ryan Bourque should get a good long look for the AHL roster, and we think he'll make it, while former Anchorage-Alaska forward Tommy Grant might see a little more competition before he ultimately makes it too.
 Projected Forwards: Greenville Road Warriors (ECHL)
Chris Chappell Jason Wilson
Heading to Greenville will be forwards Chris Chappell and Jason Wilson.  Chappell has seen his career go pretty much nowhere since signing a contract with the Rangers, and will likely being playing his last year with the Rangers.  21 year old Jason Wilson will join the pro-ranks after signing a contract with the Rangers, but will likely have to battle it out first in the ECHL in the hopes of making a big enough impression to get a call-up.
 Projected Forwards: Canadian Juniors
Shane McColgan J.T. Miller Christian Thomas
2011 1st round pick, J.T. Miller elected to switch from the NCAA to the Plymouth Whalers of the OHL, and will attend camp as a result - the NCAA doesn't allow any payments to players, and thus prospects would have to pay their own way.  It'll be his first taste of what it's like to be a pro, before he heads up to Canada.

Christian Thomas - son of former NHLer Steve Thomas - is another story.  The 19 year old Thomas could well get a long look at camp after an impressive couple of seasons in the OHL.  Thomas can't play in the AHL this season because of eligibility issues, but the Rangers will likely want to see how he does against some bigger opponents before they send him back down.
 Projected Defense - 1st Pair
Marc Staal Dan Girardi
The Rangers will continue to look for ways to generate offense from the blueline in 2011-12, but there doesn't seem to be any reason why Tortorella will split up the pairing of Marc Staal and Dan Girardi.  The two young d-men have been separated several times in their Ranger career to date, but ultimately seem to find a way to come back together.  With Michal Rozsival no longer in the picture, there doesn't seem to be any reason why they won't start off the season together as the first pairing.
 Projected Defense - 2nd Pair
Ryan McDonagh Mike Sauer
Going into camp last year, Mike Sauer looked to be caught in the no-mans land of having to clear waivers to play in the AHL.  There was speculation that the Rangers might try to trade him, rather than lose him for nothing, but ultimately he remained on the team as a healthy scratch to start the season.  It didn't take long for the rookie to leapfrog Matt Gilroy and Steve Eminger on the depth chart, and Sauer would ultimately form a strong partnership with fellow rookie Ryan McDonagh after the Minnesota native was recalled following an initial assignment to Hartford.

This year the duo appear all but destined to be in the starting line-up on opening night, and it would take a catastrophic camp for them to be overlooked.
 Projected Defense - 3rd Pair
Tim Erixon Steve Eminger
The final pairing for the Rangers will be the one that most people will be paying attention to.  Steve Eminger played well enough after coming over in a trade last year to earn another one year contract, but is far from being considered a lock.  Eminger adds a bit of physicality to the team, but looks to be a fill-in until one of the younger prospects picks up their game.

Leading the battle for the remaining spot is former first round pick Tim Erixon, son of former long-time Ranger Jan Erixon.  Tim couldn't come to terms with the Calgary Flames, because it appeared unlikely he'd make the roster.  The Rangers picked him up the day before the Flames' right's expired and will look to make a case for being the only rookie in the opening night line-up.

If Michael Del Zotto can have a strong camp, then he could push for a spot, as could rookie Pavel Valentenko - a late camp cut last season.  Journeyman Brendan Bell might also get some consideration, but is perhaps more of a long shot.

If Michael Del Zotto can have a strong camp, then he could push for a spot, as could rookie Pavel Valentenko - a late camp cut last season, or perhaps even Czech rookie Tomas Kundratek.  Journeyman Brendan Bell might also get some consideration, but is perhaps more of a long shot.
 Projected Defense - Connecticut Whale (AHL)
Stu Bickel Michael Del Zotto Tomas Kundratek
Jyri Niemi Blake Parlett Pavel Valentenko
Unlike the forward ranks, the depth on defense is a little more interesting.  Michael Del Zotto will continue to look for a way to return to the form that saw him propelled into the NHL ranks at the age of 19, but he's lost Tortorella's trust and he'll need a very strong camp to convince the coach that he's worth the risk.

By contrast steady performances by Pavel Valentenko following a good camp last year will make him one to watch this time around.  His heavy shot from the point, and willingness to use his body will also be appealing, though he may still need a little more time to convince the coaching staff he's ready.

Tomas Kundratek has been a reliable performer down in Connecticut and should get a longer look before being sent down, while the trio of Blake Parlett, Jyri Niemi and Stu Bickel figure to be early assignments to the AHL.
 Projected Defense - Greenville Road Warriors (ECHL)
Lee Baldwin Sam Klassen
Both Lee Baldwin and Sam Klassen were UFA signings by the Rangers, and both are yet to see their pro careers take off.  Baldwin, a former Alaska-Anchorage blueliner appeared in 21 games for the Whale last season, but failed to register a point, while Klassen - who played in the WHL - appeared in 3.  Both players will spend time in the ECHL trying to build a case for moving up to the AHL on a more permanent basis.
 Projected Defense - Canadian Juniors
Dylan McIlrath
2010 1st round pick, Dylan McIlrath will probably get a chance this year to stick with the Rangers a little longer, perhaps up until the team departs for Europe.  At any rate, McIlrath is not making the team this year and so will be heading back to Moose Jaw in the WHL.
 Projected Goaltending
Henrik Lundqvist Martin Biron
No mystery in goal for the Rangers.  Henrik Lundqvist is the starter, and Martin Biron will backstop him.  The only thing left to work out is how much each of them will play.

Down in Hartford, Chad Johnson looks a lock for the starting spot there with off-season signing Cameron Talbot getting time as the backup.  Without a third option, don't be surprised if the Rangers opt to bring in a third goalie on an AHL contract, and perhaps send Talbot down to the ECHL to get more playing time.

Scott Stacjer will head back to the OHL in an attempt to earn a pro contract in the final season that the Rangers own his rights, while Jordan Parise will be hoping to earn a pro contract.
 Projected Goaltending - Connecticut Whale (AHL)
Chad Johnson Cam Talbot
Chad Johnson had a relatively successful rookie season after being acquired from the Penguins, but struggled with form and injuries last season.  He'll need to bounce back with better performances this year if he hopes to return to the NHL.  By contrast, the relatively raw Cam Talbot got some good games in for the Whale last year, but needs more seasoning before he can be considered a legitimate threat to the NHL ranks.
 Projected Goaltending - Greenville Road Warriors (ECHL)
Jason Missiaen Scott Stajcer
It's unusual for the Rangers to have six goaltenders under contract, which means that free agent signing Jason Missiaen and 2009 fifth round pick Scott Stajcer will have to battle it out for playing time in the ECHL.  Neither goalie particularly impressed during the prospect camp back in June, and they'll likely just fill out the numbers until such time as they are reassigned to the Whale training camp on the way to the Road Warriors.
