One thing that puzzles me is why people complain that "I expected at least conference final from this team" and the likes?
Renney got to the second round both of these last seasons, and in both instances Rangers lost against teams that were visibly better - no matter how close it appeared at times.
Like many have indicated - you don't really have the defence (individually) for it to be realistic to contain others without having a defensive system. That hurts your offence some, but then again Jagr is not the Jagr of old, Straka is not the Straka of old and Shanahan most definately isn't the Shanahan of old. Add that your recently imported stars Gomez and Drury are not elite scorers but great complimentary players. Your difference makers simply don't make enough of a difference considering their salaries (not to mention what you expect). That will always hold a team back.
What's Renney to do about that? He's building. The youngsters are responding. You will come around. But there's no way this team is an obvious challenger next year either. The talent just isn't there compared to a number of other teams.
