it'll be very difficult to put together a very competitive team in a salary cap environment with Rozy, Redden and Drury tied up for the amount of money the Rangers committed to them. To be successful they would need guys like Grachev and Anisimov to become solid producers, and Staal, DZ, Sauer and Girardi to develop into a #1 and #2 pairings next season, making Rozy and Redden less signficant and getting the production out of cheaper people. The model's flipped on its head and I don't think the Rangers have the horses to get through the next couple years, barring some kind of miracle. Does a buyout help? The math doesn't seem to suggest so because of the dead cap space, and the length of tie it's dead. It's going to be tough rebuilding this team, which is a shame because a guy like Lundqvist could be wasted. We'll see.
