I'm certainly not complaining, the ability to draft and develop NHL talent has been remarkable for the Rangers post lockout.
A decade is quite far to look back. Teams like the Devils have clearly lost their scouting touch while the Rangers went from not knowing out to scout to scouting fantastically.
