That's why I'm excited to see the Rangers go after guys like Thomas, Fasth and St. Croix. Will most of them turn into busts? Sure. But having just one of them succeed would be huge for the franchise.
You know what you nailed it for a player comparison although MSC has a better shot than Savard had.
