Although I dropped my line combinations into the suggestion box outside the Rangers dressing room here, they were summarily ignored (And no, there is no real suggestion box. Because if there were, I would have called for the end of the third jersey years ago).
With than in mind, here were the lines the Rangers were toying with today. Note the return of future Hall of Famer Brad Isbister to the first line. You may begin your mass protest shortly.
Also, Jed Ortmeyer missed practice today to rest his knee, which he injured against the Canadiens. The Rangers are calling the wing day-to-day, although Ortmeyer said he would practice tomorrow. Naturally Ortmeyer’s condition would dictate who might come out if Isbister is back in. Tom Renney certainly isn’t going to make the same mistake of sitting Colton Orr against the Flyers, and I think they still like what Ryan Callahan brings.
So in other words, I don’t know.
Meanwhile, some other updates:
