Ignoring all other factors concerning how the Rangers will do next year it should be pointed out that Jagr and Sundin were players worthy of building a team around. I don't think Gomez is in that class and Drury is far below that class.
In order to build around a player or two it is essential to have that player or two.
I still maintain that the key to the Rangers over the next two seasons is Zherdev. If he blossoms as hoped they have a shot of competing with the top teams. If he doesn't, I don't think that they have a ghost of a chance.
