The Rangers deep pockets still allow them to have an advantage off the ice, and the training facility/staff is definitely one aspect of the organization for which this advantage has been employed very successfully.
You are 100% on the training and facility stuff but there's alot more luck here then you think. The Rangers only play 41 games at home the rest are at other arenas on other ice. Plus all the training in the world doesn't stop a player from getting hurt when another player cheapshots him.
