the "real way" to blow it up, would be to sign Ilya Kovalchuk in the offseason, and find a way to offload Redden, Drury, Rozsival, Kotalik, and Brashear...and possibly Prospal, Christensen and Higgins depending on how you want to play it.

Then, you go into next season with something like...

Prospal Dubinsky Gaborik
Kovalchuk Anisimov Callahan
Grachev Stepan Lisin
Byer Boyle Avery

Staal MDZ
Gilroy Sanguinetti/Sauer/McDonagh
Sanguinetti/Sauer/McDonagh Girardi

and you be patient.

you understand that the team as I posted will NOT compete for at least 1 year, more than likely 2 years. But you don't panic, you dont make any trades, you dont sign any free agents, you let the kids learn from the superstars, and let them make their mistakes. You keep letting Gordie Clark work his magic, and understand that in 2 years the Rangers will likely be where they are now, barely competing for a playoff spot, and in 3 years they should be one of the better teams in the league.

Kids take time to develop, even now we have an incredibly young roster...theres not all that much to blow up. We arent the Rangers of old with no prospects and a TON of underachieving vets. We are quite the opposite, with a tone of prospects, and a few underachieving vets.
