Drastic Change In Line-up Tomorrow?

Sam Weinman at the Rangers Report says that in an effort to jump start Chris Drury and Markus Naslund, Tom Renney inserted Nikolai Zherdev onto their line at practice today.

Renney then replaced Zherdev with Dan Fritsche on the Dubinsky-Voros line.

Here's Renney on the new line combinations: "I'm not 100 percent sure I'm going to do that yet," Rangers coach Tom Renney said to Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants. "I wanted to see that today. It is something I will certainly contemplate."

Weinman and Gross also attempt to explain Rissmiller's contract and how it will affect the Rangers payroll.

...if Renney was willing to make such a drastic move breaking up the team's best line, he should have at least tried to also split-up the struggling duo of Drury and Naslund.

I would like to see Drury and Gomez on a line together, possibly with Callahan. That line would have a ton of speed, and Drury and Callahan aren't afraid to shoot, which is a quality needed to be linemates with Gomez. Voros-Dubinsky-Zherdev should be kept together, while Prucha/Dawes/Fritsche-Korpikoski-Naslund could round out the 2nd and 3rd lines.
