Katie Strang tweeted today that Richards is centering Gaborik and Nash today at practice.
Steve Zipay tweeted that the other lines at practice are:
- Carl Hagelin, Derek Stepan, Ryan Callahan
- Chris Kreider, Brian Boyle, Taylor Pyatt
- Arron Asham, Jeff Halpern, Mike Rupp
Interesting these are the lines, but let’s remember that Tortorella is not running today’s practice (He can’t have contact with players yet) and he might have other plans for the lineup. I personally do not see this “super line” of Nash, Richards, and Gaborik happening once Tortorella takes charge. Save those kinds of lines for the All-Star Games. I think it’d be best if the Rangers split up Nash and Gaborik. It would certainly be harder for teams to stop our two biggest goal threats that way.
