They still have Haley in the AHL. I think he'd really change the bottom 6 for them. But he needs to be given a chance.
Four games is hardly an adequate sample size for any analysis. Losing Prust and Dubinsky took some of the heart and soul out of the Rangers. Those kinds of guys could help spark the team when necessary. I didn't like some of the new additions but the bottom six isn't the problem.
Over the long haul, the "cure" for the Rangers is already on their roster: Callahan needs to step up and, to a lesser extent, Kreider needs to be better. Just because those things haven't happened in the first four games doesn't mean it won't. The Rangers will right their ship without any moves.
