Any thoughts about his value as he makes his debut. He will likely be playing with Gaborik. Is he a good buy?

depends how it shakes out.......

NYR are getting back

dubi, callahan, prospal all at the same time......the lines could be anything especially with wolski finding chemistry with mats z and stepan....

I am watching this situation closely....Torts likes line juggling and we could see this....

Prospal - Stepan - Gaborik
Dubinsky - Anisimov - Callahan
Wolski - Boyle - Zuccarello
Avery - Drury - Prust

Staal - Girardi
Eminger - Sauer
McDonagh - Gilroy

Torts will keep Prospal and Gabby together, no question - these guys have chemistry and it's obvious that other than Dubi, Gabby is finding it difficult to play with anyone else on a consistent basis. I thought he had something when he put Avery and Anisimov with him, but that experiment didn't last very long.

Stepan has been chosen to C their line for now, but I really see Dubi back up there when the smoke clears.

If you can pick up Vinny, do so, but keep in mind the potential rust that comes with his long layoff - don't get discouraged.

Vaclav Prospal will start on a line with Derek Stepan and Marian Gaborik on Thursday.

Well, Prospal could not have asked for a better duo on the Rangers to start off the season with. Look for Prospal to get off to a good start in his first game or two but do not be surprised if he hits the proverbial wall for a couple of weeks as he tries to get into game shape. He is worth picking up for the rest of the season.
