 Projected Forwards - First Line
Marian Gaborik Derek Stepan Ryan Callahan
In his 220 game career with the New York Rangers, Marian Gaborik has started just one game at left wing.  That experiment - January 30, 2010 vs. Phoenix Coyotes - lasted all of one period before Tortorella looked to make a change after the Rangers fell behind 3-0 after 14 minutes.  He has however played left wing for his native Slovakia, and as a natural left shot, would be moving to the more natural position - at least by North American standards.

It's also natural that Tortorella would pair Gaborik with third year pivot Derek Stepan, after all the two played 60 games together last season, and found some good chemistry.  What perhaps is a little more unlikely is the addition of captain Ryan Callahan on the right, who seems more naturally suited to play with Nash and Richards, than his free flowing linemates.

A more logical move would have been to put Carl Hagelin on the left with Gaborik remaining on the right, and that seems like a configuration that will be tried out sooner rather than later should this experiment fail.
 Projected Forwards - Second Line
Rick Nash Brad Richards Carl Hagelin
The Rangers' second line could easily be considered their first, and could quite likely assume that role in individual games, if not the majority of the season.  The team's biggest off-season acquisition - Rick Nash - lines up along side the crafty Brad Richards in a pairing that looks destined - at least on paper - for good things.

If the two can find some chemistry, then they could easily become one of the most dangerous offensive duos in the league, with Nash driving to the net and providing room for Richards to either setup the play or score himself.  As mentioned above, the addition of Hagelin is maybe a little more surprising, though the second year Swede proved last year that he benefited almost every pair he was aligned with.

 Projected Forwards - Third Line
Chris Kreider Brian Boyle Arron Asham
After a breakout performance in the NHL playoffs, Chris Kreider finds himself on a third line with the hot and cold Brian Boyle and likely grinder Arron Asham.  Kreider will make his NHL Regular Season debut on Saturday, but will likely be paired with the inconsistent offensive force of Bryan Boyle, and one of several grinders the Rangers look to open the season with.  The impact could be a negative for Kreider, who also could face less ice time and potentially a more defensive role.

Conversely, Brian Boyle may benefit slightly by having an offensive winger on his line.  Paired for the most part with Brandon Prust over the past two seasons, Boyle has shown ability to get hot offensively, at least from a goal-scoring perspective...the jury remains out on his puck distribution capabilities.

As for the final piece of the third line, Arron Asham looks to be the most likely option, though any of the projected fourth liners, or a call-up from Connecticut could also get a shot.
 Projected Forwards - Fourth Line
Taylor Pyatt Jeff Halpern Mike Rupp
The Rangers fourth line got a bit of a makeover with veterans Taylor Pyatt and Jeff Halpern added in the off-season.  Mike Rupp or Jeff Halpern could end up on the wing, though Halpern's superior face-off ability - 58.4% win percentage last season - will likely see him get the nod over Rupp.  Pyatt brings some added experience to the left wing, and could potentially be used on the third line if needed, having scored 18 goals as recently as the 2010-11 season with the Phoenix Coyotes.
 Projected Forwards: Reserves
     
Going into the season, the Rangers look like they'll start with no forwards on reserve
 Projected Defense - 1st Pair
Ryan McDonagh Dan Girardi
Last season Ryan McDonagh emerged as a go-to defender as the Rangers lost first Marc Staal and then Mike Sauer to concussions.  The emergence of the youn blueliner was key to the team's success last year, and there's no reason to think he and veteran Dan Girardi will once again pair up to start the season.
 Projected Defense - 2nd Pair
Marc Staal Michael Del Zotto
Marc Staal is likely as impatient as anyone to get the season started, after missing much of the beginning of last season with a concussion.  The 26 year old - as of January 13th - enters his sixth season looking to re-establish himself as a premiere defender, following a steady, though underperforming year in 2011-12.

Staal will be joined by Michael Del Zotto who re-emerged as a reliable NHLer, after taking a step backwards in 2010-11 before breaking his way back into the NHL line-up.  The 22 year old Del Zotto still has plenty to work on, but at least is again heading in the right direction, and with a newly signed 2 year contract, still has plenty to prove in order to earn the big payoff in 2014.
 Projected Defense - 3rd Pair
Stu Bickel Anton Stralman
There appears to be good competition for the third pair with Anton Stralman perhaps the best positioned of the four.  Stu Bickel opportunistically worked his way into the line-up last year after key injuries put pressure on the Rangers' depth, but remains under pressure to keep his position.  More limited in his abilities than perhaps the other five defenders, Bickel none-the-less has an edge that is perhaps an asset in a more intense schedule that focuses on division and conference rivalries.

With Mike Sauer's career remaining in jeopardy, the primary competition will come from Steve Eminger and Matt Gilroy, both of whom also have flaws to their game. 
 Projected Defense - Reserves
Steve Eminger Matt Gilroy
 
Mike Sauer  
The Rangers look as though they'll go in to the season with just the two spare players on the roster, both of whom have played forward on occasion.  While both are still primarily defenders, neither will be hurt by spending some time on the sidelines and potentially jumpining in to cover an injury or suspension.
 Projected Goaltending
Henrik Lundqvist Martin Biron
No real surprise in net, as the duo of Henrik Lundqvist and Martin Biron will open up for their third straight season.
