Surprisingly, the Rangers have a decent grouping of players with some solid potential.
Lauri Korpikoski (pictured): This is a former number 1 pick of the Rangers. If there is anyone however that has the tools to succeed under John Tortorella, I feel that Korp is the guy that could do it.
Look at Cally; this kid plays almost the same game, however, I believe has more natural scoring talent. You give this kid 2nd line time, and watch him "all of a sudden" pot 20 goals.
Fredrik Sjostrom; Again, another former number one pick. This, again, is a guy who has an incredible work ethic.
He's shown a willingness to get dirty and play rough hockey. Sadly, he's languished on a line with Colton Orr.
You put him on a line with Chris Drury, and he might get a few more chances. I love his game, and I don't see his ceiling as 4th line winger, under any circumstance.
Dan Girardi: Why is he unsung? I don't think teams come into the Garden worrying too much about Dan Girardi.
If given the ice time, I think they would however. First off...this guy has shown a decent ability to play the point on the powerplay.
I'm tired of watching Michal Roszival... why can't this guy get a real chance? I like his offensive upside, which could match his defensive prowess.
