The Rangers especially are going to have to keep relying on pumping talent onto the roster from the farm system. The cap coming down. And most of the core needing new contracts. Nash is locked in for a long time so there is a primary scorer.
Yes, Im sure teams will be chomping at the bit to give away a top 15 pick and take on Gaborik's $7M cap hit.
