Plucking some never been, wanna be off the waiver wire or signing an ageing veteran (who couldn't find a job before the season started) isn't what this team needs.

I'm not worried about Callahan, but the fact that Stepan is starting so slowly after bombing in the playoffs worries me. Plus, it's pretty clear that the organization expected Hagelin to pick up where he left off after coming up and had very high expectations for Kreider--it's a big burden to place on such young players, especially in a 48 game sprint to the playoffs. In the end, salvation lies within. I just hope that all the pieces come together quickly--Sather has always wanted one last Cup before finally retiring and he's not getting younger.
Arnott is far from a never been/was. Maybe the Rangers wanted him to add depth (a hall of fame cup winning guy) on the bottom lines. Nothing wrong with that.
