Now that the cuts have been pretty much made, and most of the decisions, too, there’s one thing still to ponder.
We kind of started the discussion last night.
Who is going to end up the first-line left wing on Opening Night?
Guess the next two preseason games are worth watching for that. Because, IMO, Wojtek Wolski certainly hasn’t sewn up that job.
So today in Slovakia (11 a.m./MSG) and tomorrow in Switzerland (2 p.m./MSG), watch who gets the shot there, and how they handle it? Will it be Brandon Dubinsky? Will it be Brian Boyle? What about Derek Stepan (has that option even been considered)? Or will it be Wolski simply because John Tortorella doesn’t want to mess with his second and third lines?
And, please, let’s stop the Sean Avery talk that’s been surrounding this equation since Brad Richards landed.
