Every year we sign some older vet out of no where, so for those of you saying Gaborik and Lundqvist will be the only ones in a few years, there's no way that's happening. The vast majority of our prospects won't pan out (we do have like 50 or something, so if 10 become bonafide NHLers, that's a success), and while we will be restocking the cupboard with draft picks, veteran leadership is very important.

I know that on this site prospects are worth more than the Stanley Cup itself, but if this team does develop into something special, which we're all hoping for down the road, we will DEFINITELY need some veteran presence for a cup run. Hopefully guys like MZA, Grachev, Stepan, Werek, Anisimov, Dubinsky, Callahan, MCD, Staal, Gilroy, Kreider, MDZ and a few other youngsters (perhaps some yet to be drafted) will have long, successful Ranger careers, and hopefully they are supplemented with some key vets for a run in the next few years.
