I know what you mean but the list is not very impressive.
I figure they need a faceoff C so go with a cheaper option like Konopka. They guy can kill penalties and fight too....reality is Rangers are fine with Richards, Stepan and whether people like it or not Torts trusts Boyle as the 3rd line C. He is also being paid like a 3rd line C.
On D the main issue in the playoffs was that 6th spot. Sarich knows Torts and is a tougher vet. Its not like the D is bad with McD, Girardi, Staal, DZ, Erixon and maybe Stralman back. Also Sauer is a Wild Card
They need a top 6 Winger and Whitney can be a good stop gap for that. Rather have Doan but I think Whitney is more realistic. Not many better options in Free Agency
Of course Sather could come up with a deal out of no where but as UFAs go this is likely what to expect
