That may very well be true. We all know that no team - maybe no league - has rewarded players more for what they've done in the past than the Rangers. But who has a better chance of score 40 goals in the NHL? Someone who did it 2 years ago or someone who's in college or juniors and hasn't scored 40 goals there? Is there a 40 goal scorer there? Sure there is. But there's also 10,000 busts. Have a crystal ball? Don't waste it on hockey.
