A couple of years ago someone posted quotes on this site from an NHL executive who commented on the Rangers having too many young players who would be maturing at around the same time. This is a good problem to have, but it is still a problem.

You can't fit them all onto one team, so the idea is to keep the best of them, and trade other young assets to fill needs, whether it be for veterans to complement them or young players in areas that the team is not strong.

The Yankees are a good local example of a team that has (recently, at least) kept its best prospects and used the surplus as trading chips.

The Rangers are not going to play six defensemen with three or less years of NHL experience at the same time. They won't go with four who have for long, so be prepared; the team has stated time and time again that they want to bring in someone to eat minutes who is an NHL veteran.
