The team needs a scorer. If we aren't gettng one through free agency or trade, then we have to draft one. How are we going to do that when we have a team that's good enough to make the playoffs and not good enough to do anything there. We're not going to get high enough picks to draft an impact scorer, and we don't have the cap space to acquire one should he become available.

Just look at the teams that win. Great goaltending by itself is not enough. You have to score goals.
You want to win a Cup? You have to make the playoffs. Once you're there, anything can happen. Especially when you have the goalie the Rangers have.

What I'm hearing from you is you want to draft on the top five or win a Cup. It doesn't work that way.

That's just it.
