Morning Line- Larry Brooks

The Rangers have made a considerable financial commitment to Goodrow. That was the easy part. Now management must make the commitment to build a unit around the new man and put him in a position in which he can make the most impact. If not, if the idea is to just throw him onto a line with, say, Kreider and Filip Chytil, the Rangers might just as well have given the money to me. -Larry Brooks of the New York Post where you can read more on the Rangers.
