His comments about the Rangers were just reinforcing a sweeping generalization which was untrue. As some other posters said, they started a youth movement around the 2004 deadline and every year have added at least 2-3 players.

The whole "Rangers don't have patience with their youth and sign everyone to large contracts" is a stereotype from the dreadful years. It's just people hating the Rangers for the sake of hating them. That's why I'm annoyed with Moore's comments. If he does want to come back, it's fine at this point.
He was drafted and Rangers property for the majority of those "dark years" so Im not going to kill him for saying that.

As for the so-called "youth movement," yea, its a nice story. Giving them a chance has garnered a very solid foundation.

But this team will go as far as the top-shelf talent takes them.

Richards, Nash, Gaborik, and Lundqvist.

3 mercenaries and an all-world goaltender they lucked out on.
