What is the Rangers Plan B?

I don't see any offensive free agents that excite me. Tomas Fleischman maybe but that's about it. Anyoine else out there?

So that leaves the trade market.

My initial thought is to inquire about Paul Stasny. He was reportedly available at the trrade deadline last year and he certainly fills the bill of a front line center. He, of course, comes with a stiff price...at least 3 young assets. But the alternative?

And one other thought -- what about Alexander Radulov? Would you trade assets for him? I would based on what I have seen and heard

Other thoughts?
Plan B? Free agents to fill voids aren't the ONLY option. Let's try, "Stay the course". That's how the Devils of the mid 90s-mid 2000s were good. That's how Detroit has been good since the early 90s. STAY THE COURSE. Develop one. Pick one. Find the the gem in the draft. They got three with Girardi, McDonagh and Sauer. They can do it again.
