That and just about everyone else in the conference has gotten better. Elias is staying in NJ, so they will bring back almost the same team. The Rangers actually have some money to spend.

With all these defensemen getting paid, Pitkanen is going to be getting a lot more than what we thought he would and he is the only one right now who can play decent defense along the line. Pitkanen will get $4M no problem and Gagne is definetaly worth around $5.5.

I know what some of the blind loyalists who say "oh yeah well we got the young kids and if this that and the other thing" but right now there is a grave concern about what will happen next year and for the first time since Eric Lindros was here, there is a very real possability that this team will not make the playoffs. With the capabilties and money and resources this team has, for that to be a possability is a very real problem and by the looks of things it looks like there will not be much change from what we see on the roster right now.
