Having money to spend WAS the problem.

The Rangers became a good team with quality drafting/development and commitment to youth. Sure free agency plays a big role, but there will always be top end free agents willing to sign in NY. Should that continue there is nothing to worry about. See: Detroit.

As bad as Slats has been with UFA signings, he handles RFA signings very well and is a wizard in trades.
