In the context of starting from scratch just 5 seasons ago, I actually think the Rangers are on pace to build a contending team within the window of time it takes to do so. Some good choices this summer will go a long way towards achieving your prediction of 2-3 years for an ECF's appearance.

Complaining about NOT being there today because the process wasn't started 2-3 years earlier is an easy trap to fall into though. I'm sure you understand.
I understand that pre-lockout smarts could have meant we see a contender now.

I agree.

And believe it all began with the Cup in 94. The mentality changed.

Keep Amonte, Weight, Zubov, Savard... and maybe we talk about the Rangers winning 3 in 9 and not the Devils.

But the future is bright, lots of good things happening here now. And good mojo within the organization and players.
