Kreider - Miller - Hagelin
Powe - Boyle - Pyatt
McD - Girardi
Staal - MDZ
Klesla - Stralman

Don't take this post too seriously. It's not a trade proposal. It's just a "what if..." kind of rant.
no offense, but your "what if" looks like Nash rejoining the NY blue jackets. Korpikoski on the 2line?
Vermette as a#1?

The rangers have been very good in FA. What former wash up players have we been acquiring since the 05 lockout?

We've seen that internally, the problem is that we're drafting guys who will fill roles, and writing big checks in July to bring in the big talent.
We don't have guys coming up in our system? Hagelin, Miller, Krieder, McD? Hopefully McIrath soon...

We won't always be writing big checks in July, but if it's for young proven talent, what's the difference?

Seems like all it takes is a little adversity and everyone questions the long term goal. If it doesn't work out this year.. so what? We're still set to be a competitive team next year and beyond.
