Poll Results and Fast Freddie is back


      Well this is one of the closer polls that has been up here but it seems Peter Mueller will be the highest scoring player among this group. It will definitely be between Mueller and Zherdev. If Zherdev gets it going with Gomez as his center then I could definitely see him taking this race but with Peter Mueller playing on a line with Olli Jokinen and Shane Doan, he has to be the early favorite. Dubinsky and Turris will both have good years but not to the point that Mueller and Zherdev will. But stranger things have happened.
     Tough writing these days as news is pretty much non existent. The only news to report today is that Fredrik Sjostrom has resigned with the Rangers for 1 year, 840k according to a Swedish newspaper report. Great to see Freddie back for at least another year. I hope Renney gives him the chance on a scoring line that Gretzky seemed so unwilling to do. Coyote fans remember the VHS line? Put Sjostrom with Gomez and Naslund and see what happens. Zherdev is more of a playmaker anyway, despite what highlights may suggest, and would be more suited to a shooter like Drury and Dawes. Freddie is the fastest player on the Rangers right now....yes even faster than Gomez and Dubinsky... He doesn't belong on the bottom line. 
     The Rangers have been looking for one more top 6 forward to round things out on the top 2 lines. They have one right in front of them in Sjo. Use him. He can be productive. 
     Another poll will be up later.
