The Rangers are three pieces away: 1C, 1st or 2nd LW, OD.

Hopefully MDZ becomes that OD the team needs. I have hope that Step becomes 1C. And hopefully Kreider becomes a top-6 forward, or alternatively Thomas becomes a scorers giving us a lot of strength on the right so the left could get away with something like Dubinsky, Wolski, Hagelin, Grachev.

The isles I think are at least 4-5 pieces away, though they will be closer with the addition of a top draft pick in a few days.

The rangers are closer.

Man, if the isles only drafted Heatley and kept Luongo instead of drafting DiPietro, they would have made the playoffs every year since 2002.

Not to mention all the great talent they gave away in the 90's (Chara and Spezza for Yashin, Bertuzzi and McCabe for Linden, Turgeon and Malakhov for Muller, etc). They have been easily the most mismanaged team in hockey, maybe all of sports.

Milbury was like a curse on their franchise.
