As for the rest of your comment I agree completely. When you think about it, considering how the best prospects can literally turn a franchise around for the next decade, it's ridiculous that the worst teams are rewarded with those guys. But it's reality. I don't like the Pens any more than you but you have to admit it would greatly benefit the Rangers to suck enough to be able to draft a Crosby or Malkin and turn the franchise around. That's why I would have liked to see this team go in the opposite direction for the last few weeks.
The Rangers were in position to be terrible enough to draft Crosby; That was Sather's plan A after 2004: tank to get a shot at him. Unfortunately, that random lottery was one of the worst things I've ever seen happen to the franchise.
