Why do the Rangers have the same problems, year, after year, after year, after year?

The Rangers refuse to lose onpurpose, so they won't get #1 overall.
And getting lucky with the other picks is just that.
They've drafted extremely well. They're building a team.
If the only way for them to get the elite forward is by UFA, how is that pathetic?
The Islanders are a perennial top 5 pick. How close are they to winning the Cup? What about the Oilers?
Have Tavares and Hall fixed those franchises?
No, and we had a very good potential one. Cherepanov if successful in the NHL had the chance to be a 90pt player. That is a super star to me.
