The fact is BECAUSE of those very good young players, the Rangers are in a position to take the next step by acquiring the right piece to make them a contender.

Richards would be that piece. If they don't get him, they stick to the plan.

That's not good enough for you, then I don't know what to say.
Exactly, the purpose of prospects are to find the ones that fit into the future plans, and ship all the others away for players who will make an impact. This team has built a beyond solid core, now it just needs a few more prospects to come up, and an impact player which we can sign through FA or trade.

A great team is constructed through trades, free agent signings and the draft together. You can't build a team exclusively with one and not the other two.
