2-3 years, imo, at the least, 5 years, at the most. We have a ton of young talent and leaders, and, seeing as we're a top 10 team with even MORE higher-end talent still developing and not even in the NHL yet, I'd say the future is incredibly bright for the Rangers for once.
You have Stepan, Ansimov, and Boyle down the middle, all currently producing well as Rookies/Sophomores. You have a loaded backend, with a legit top pairing in Staal-Girardi, the best rookie shutdown defenseman in Sauer, a solid veteran in Eminger, and young players like McDonagh, Del Zotto, and McIlrath still developing. The of course you have Lundqvist...
We're still missing some major pieces, though. Mainly, another puck mover. And, of course, a legit #1 center(something I think Stepan can definitely bcome, though).
So I'd say we're not that far off is everything goes smoothly.
