I doubt Girardi will be a Ranger long term, Roszival will be gone sooner than later, Redden's already as good as gone, and I don't see Sauer, Williams, Kundtratek or Potter or any of our second level defensive prospects panning out for the Rangers before they're moved. Gilroy doesn't get re-signed next season. That leaves you with

Staal-Del Zotto
Mcd-Sangs
?-?

We may have depth but the 4 guys I have penciled in are the only ones I get excited about actually making a difference int he NHL. Gilroy and Valentenko are the only other ones I think could have marginal impact.

These are all things I'm sure Mcd, his family, and his "family advisors" are well aware of. If McD is the real deal like everyone thinks he is, there shouldn't be any problem with him outshining the other prospects we have.
