When I got the email for this week's "Open Mic" saying to pick your favorite team and name an all-time lineup, I was really excited. There's only one problem, there are so many great players to play for the New York Rangers that it's hard to choose just one starting lineup. So instead of just six players, I went the whole nine yards and did an entire lineup; four lines, three defensive pairings and two goaltenders. I hope you enjoy.
