The Rangers are looking real good at LW for the future: Nash, Kreider, Hagelin and either Nieves or Hrivik. That's a hell of a left side.

We are ok at center too: Brad, Stepan, Boyle are already here, with Miller, St. Croix and Fogarty on the way. Assuming of those of three becomes a top-9 forward, our centers are excellent for the foreseeable future.

With goaltending and defense very solid, the weak spot is the RW once Gabby leaves.
