The rest of Hartford were 2nd and 3rd tier guys like Greg Moore and Byers and PAPsmear with no real shot of sticking with the team.

Rangers will be fine. The deeper they go this year, the higher their players will be valued.

Thomas, Kreider, Miller, Fasth, MSC, Fogarty, Yogan, McColgan -- my money says two of those guys develop into top-6 25-plus scorers.

McIlrath and Erixon are high-end prospects. The youth on the NHL blue line makes the development process easy.

Rangers own the best record in hockey and have a top-10-15 prospect pool. They'll be fine.
Yep. At least for the next few years, we're going to be very Red Wings-esque. Incredibly competitive team while effectively pumping in and developing youth.
