    Based on the overall quality of play from this team in October-November, that may not be an absurd statement.

    That's a lot of speed on the Zibanejad line.

    Laffy-Zib-Kakko was working very well at the start of the streak.

    I think GG probably moved Panarin up to line 1 with Zib to try to get one of them scoring goals at even strength. That's kind of a missing element for the Rangers two best forwards at this point.

    The defense is playing much better. At his best K'Andre Miller plays as good defense as any player in the league.

    that line didn’t do much after the first game they deployed it.

    probably just slide Trocheck up and put Goodrow at 3c w Kreider and Vesey

    That'd be a great 3rd line for grinding and they can all put the puck in the net also.

    That be a very good defensive line as well. Vesey has been unbelievably important to this team. He’s one of the highest rated defensive forwards in the league. He’s a Selke candidate.

    Guy was a PTO (tryout) candidate and turned into one of our key contributors.

    He's one of those guys that you get the sense that he WANTS to be on this team. Not just be an NHL player, but he wants to play for the Rangers.

    He did come out of college and wind up on the Rangers as a rookie after a quite interesting draft experience

    Gallants idea of an adjustment after the first period was putting lines back together that haven’t played together for a month.

    Gallant sucks!
