Default Re: 2009-10 NHL Season Thread

Rangers and Canadiens fan. With the Rangers, I see no in between. They're going to be either really good, or absolutely horrible. They traded Gomez for Christopher Higgins(not going to make them contenders), lost Morris and Mara, and signed Gaborik(good scorer, but injury prone). If Lundqvist can have a spectacular season, they'll be up there. But with the losses of 2 key defensemen, I don't see them as a playoff team.

Montreal on the other hand, looks better. They have Scott Gomez, a bit overpaid, but an excellent playmaker and can still score 15-20 goals. They have Brian Gionta, though lacking size, can still pot 25-30 goals. They now have Paul Mara, a solid D man and brings size. Mike Cammalleri is also a Hab now, a solid goal scorer and playmaker.

Rangers lines(not sure if it's accurate)
1st- Prospal/Drury/Gaborik
2nd- Dubinsky/Higgins/Kotalik
3rd- Voros/Brashear/Callahan
4th- Avery/Rissmiller/Moore

1st- Rozival/Redden
2nd- Staal/Girardi
3rd- Semenov/Potter

G- Lundqvist/Valiquette

Habs lines(not sure if it's accurate)
1st- Gomez/Cammalleri/A. Kostitsyn
2nd- Lapierre/S. Kostitsyn/Gionta
3rd- Plekanec/Laraque/Latendresse
4th- Metropolit/Stewart/Moen

1st- Hamrlik/Markov
2nd- Gill/Mara
3rd- Gorges/Spacek

G- Price/Halak

Montreal definitely looks better than the Rangers this year.
