Adding skill is important. The Rangers need a center, a defenseman who can move the puck and a sniper would be nice. A return to form by Gaborik would be helpful too. Good news; the two top prospects in the organization are snipers and Del Zotto may eventually fill the role of a puck moving defenseman capably. They have (for all intents and purposes) dead space on the cap that can be pruned to make room. But if you think there's a need for a massive overhaul here, you're crazy. I like the core of this team just the way it is.
I think we can pretty much just lock up the thread after this post. I'm not sure what the OP is really getting at honestly. Is there anyone that doesn't believe we need more talented players to win? Nobody thinks we're gonna win a Stanley Cup with a team full of Prusts and Callahans, but we're also not gonna win a Stanley Cup without them.
