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

And this was going on prior to Sather.
Neil Smith's teams after the Cup were generally failures, as he traded away all the youth for long-shots at repeating '94. In effect, Sather was completely handcuffed early in his tenure as he had nobody in the system and few picks to try to build with. That's not to say Sather isn't to blame, but let's be a little honest about the WHOLE history.
Before that, Espo did the same. Craig Patrick before him.
This ISN'T just a Sather thing. It's been a RANGER thing.
