Id give this offseason a D
In fairness, I think Frolov has a better chance to actually deliver something for us.
I think this offseason comes down to the context in which it is viewed.
I don't think the Rangers went into this offseason looking to turn themself into a top contender. I think they went in looking to find some parts that can buy them some time to let their kids emerge, but not necessarily handcuff them for the future. To that end, they've mostly succeeded.
If you're looking at it in the context of dramatically improving the team, I think you're going to be disappointed. But I don't think that was a fair expectation for right now anyway.
