Questions for Ranger Fans

Good afternoon folks. I figured now would be a good time to get the pulse of Ranger nation and see what you folks think about the following questions I have for ya:

- How much do you think defenseman Marc Staal is worth?

- If you were head coach John Tortorella, what would your lines look like?

- Do you think newcomer Todd White will end up with the big club or with the Hartford Wolf Pack? Why?

- Torts told Stan Fischler that he thinks back-up netminder Martin Biron will get in between 17 and 20 games this season. Do you believe him or do you think he’ll run with Henrik Lundqvist for as many games as possible?

- What do you think about what Torts had to say about Sean Avery?:

“Sean has to be more consistent,” John insisted. “He was very inconsistent last year. If he is consistent, he will play because he can be an important part of this hockey club. But if he’s not involved, he won’t play.”

- Overall, what do you think of what the team has done this summer? What can they do to further improve before the season begins?

I want to hear your thoughts, folks!

He doesn’t like Avery, so he will always find fault with him.  He has about half a team.  6 forwards and 3 defensemen.  The rest of the team has to be filled out.  The goaltending is much improved, meaning Lundquist can be rested a little more for the playoffs.
