Also, a lot depends on if they have one of these many goalies and many Dmen pan out that they've drafted. Poulin was supposed to be the #1 and still can but he's not having a great year.
The interesting thing is to see if they gain Reinhardt and Strome but lose both Moulson and Streit it might very well be a wash. Streit is UFA and Moluson has one more year left.
Regardless, the Rangers just have to stick with their program they've been building and if kids like Fasth, Nieves, and Lindberg can be added to this core along with Skjei, and maybe even Noreau and Anderson, they should be fine for quite some time regardless of what the Islanders, Pittsburgh, Philly, Devils, and even the Capitals and Canes do (with this new potential realignment which needs to have the playoff format modified).
People have been repeating the bolded for years now. They'll be better once Okposo, Bailey, Comeau, de Haan come around. Just wait until DiPietro is healthy. Etc, etc, etc. They're just a terribly run franchise.
