The consistency will come.
As soon as the team becomes consistent.
I rather have everyone ask about who is going to come in and coach this team. No doubt in my mind that Lundmark can be a 1st/2nd line C'man within a good system. A system is something the Rangers have lacked for god knows how long. Just don't understand why people are so quick to get rid of Lundy? Other teams would love to have Jamie. Because they would know how to use him.
My concern as of right now as a Ranger fan is, in this order is:
Brian Leetch hoisting the Stanley Cup over his head.
The Upcoming Draft.
Oh, and as a consumer, Dolan's word on lowering tix prices.
Jamie Lundmark not performing this year is not on my list of things to worry about.
OK, I will agree with you in that Lundmark is not the be all and end all of the issues facing the Rangers and he has become a HUGE topic on this board.
However, as the "future captain and first line center" on this team, his lack of performance has to be a concern for the future of this team. He is THE ONLY forward prospect on this team that was rated highly and actually made it to the NHL on the Rangers in the past several years (I think ... other than maholtra and brendl) and everyone is kind of disappointed in his performance to date.
Can he improve? Yes. Will he? I don't know.
Is it of foremost importance for the team? No. We can always go out and sign someone ... but I think the reason he has been so scrutinized is that WE WANT him to succeed here and do well, so we can root for that highly touted homegrown kid who succeeded here (at least its the reason I'm dissappointed in him so far).
