For the Rangers to compete, they need Kreider because they lack depth. The difference between him being a 25-25 player and not being able to contribute is probably the difference between contending for the Cup and struggling with a lack of depth. The hope is that Kreider can at least replace Anisimov's offense, while Nash should be a significant improvement on on Dubinsky. This, plus the return of Sauer before the playoffs would make the Rangers into true contenders. But they have to play Rupp-Boyle-Pyatt as their third line, the Rangers will have serious issues.
