If by "some fans", you mean, the vast minority, I agree.
The problem is context. How can the Rangers be "good enough" when they're indexed against a borderline dynasty in Pittsburgh, which they cannot seem to defeat, or dynasties in the making like Chicago or Washington, again, the latter proving to be pretty much unbeatable for the blueshirts? They're never going to "home grow" a team with the potential to be that good under this management team. Never.
If Torts was the GM, I'd be more interested in this quote. For now, I'm only concerned with what he does with players he's got instead of players he wished he had. You're not getting rid of Redden, so, buck up, be a professional and get this guy engaged in the game to a serviceable degree instead of building a public PR campaign against him in what would appear to be an attempt to be left with no choice but to move him at all costs.
