Will 'Shakeup' Wakeup the Rangers?

John Dellapina, The NY Daily News
Tom Renney's goal in shakeup is more goals, wins for Rangers:

For a solid month, Tom Renney had three excellent reasons to avoid overhauling his forward lines even though the combinations left Jaromir Jagr largely to fend for himself:

  1. The Rangers were winning.
  2. The familiarity was contributing to the Rangers keeping the puck out of their own net.
  3. Jagr preferred remaining tethered to rookie Brandon Dubinsky rather than being centered by either Scott Gomez or Chris Drury.
With Reasons 1 and 2 no longer applying and Reason 3 defying reason, Renney yesterday moved some big pieces around in preparation for tonight's visit to the Garden by Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins. . .

    Agree, that's why I put 'shakeup' in quotes. Rearranging the deck chairs and then running to the front of the boat might delay inevitable, but Renney like Leo DiCaprio will soon be thrown in the drink.
