My point is that the team started a TRUE rebuild when they decided to let Jagr, Shanahan and Nylander go, and bring in stopgaps like Naslund for a year while the kids were brought in to play.
Dubinsky and Callahan should just about be at their primes. Anisimov, Stepan and Boyle are improving, and once we get guys like Kreider, Thomas, Grachev, Hagelin, etc. in we're gonna be even better off.
Basically, the thing I'm trying to get at here is the Rangers are in a better spot now than they have been in years, so I'd rather them do it right and win a cup in 2-3 years than rush anything by signing guys like Gagne or other overpriced FA's in order to try to win now. If you're gonna do it, do it right.
That's not to say I don't want Richards though, I do. I think he'll help, is still in his prime, and the #1 C that we don't have in the system.
