Rick Nash Trade: Predicting How the NY Rangers' Forward Lines Will Look

When the New York Rangers traded for Rick Nash on July 23rd, they knew they were adding a front line forward.

Though the Rangers will undoubtedly switch up their lines once Marian Gaborik returns from his shoulder injury, Nash will certainly open the season on the top line, along with assistant captain Brad Richards. With the skill of Nash and Richards, John Tortorella will most likely finish out the first line with the speed of either Chris Kreider or Carl Hagelin.

Nash is capable of playing on either wing and the Rangers have a lot of different options to play alongside him. From young speedsters to cool veterans, Tortorella has one of those good problems, in that he has a lot of talented players, but only needs 12 forwards.

Let's take a look at who those 12 forwards may be when Nash and the Rangers open their season against the Stanley Cup champions in L.A. on October 12th.
