Add another guy like another set of Miller and Fogarty, while the Isles are trying to rebuild their defense corps (still will be inferior to what we got), and all of a sudden, I think we have the better group of forwards.
If the Islanders had drafted Larsson, as they wanted to until the Debbies won the lottery to swoop him, I think the Rangers would have the stronger set of forwards. As it is, I think the Isles are slightly stronger.
Also, if either Wolski or Zuccarello prove to be second liners, and either McColgan or St. Croix have a great offensive season in juniors, it will be big for us.
We can 'if' ourselves to death. they have the forwards. We have the d-men, and goalie...
