Neither is a large part of the fan base.

We have a very good group of prospects with excellent numbers. What we lack is a generational player.

If readers here think that the majority of the fan base wants the Rangers to burn the furniture and not even try to compete so they can accumulate high draft choices, they are crazy. And if I just called you crazy, then I am sorry. I am not talking about what you think. Everybody on the board is entitled to their own opinion but if you think that the majority of Ranger fans favor a long term tank, you are incorrect. There are lots of wanna be GMs on this board who see things in the very long term. Like in the 4-5-6 years it would take to lose 50 games a season and hopefully get a couple of elite players from the draft. This forum represents a very small and very young slice of Ranger nation. Think what you want but don't think everyone agrees with you.

This is one case wheer the silent majority is in agreement with management, although many have not even thought about it,. Most Ranger fans want to be entertained and to come see a winning team. Losing 50 games a year is neither.
