I disagree. If anything, it describes the Rangers to a tee. He doesn't say "They're threat to WIN the Stanley Cup." Simply that, the mentality is that they shoot for the Cup. Every player who has come here has spouted the same idea, that Rangers are a team with the resources to shoot for the Cup. Of the teams mentioned, the Rangers are the only one to publicly change their mindset. Toronto and Philly haven't said that they have made a commitment to youth for the next year or so. They other possibility could be Washington, except for that whole "great tradition" line.
