I don't think it's really as black and white as you want it to be, and on top of that, this cycle is inevitable. Once your each that level where you start to win and go deeper and deeper into the playoffs, your draft picks move further down the road, and next thing you know, the farm is starting to look pretty barren.

Just look at the Red Wings this year for another example. It doesn't work as strict as you think.

I will say the Rangers are certainly no longer the laughing stock of drafting, and the ability of the organization to turn picks into players has risen. Makes for good competition, and that's good for all of us.
