Look at all the young talent the Oilers have. It is far superior to that of the Rangers and they are still sitting at .500 hockey, out of playoff contention. The Rangers have an advantage with a better D corp, and Lundqvist, but bringing in a bunch of prospects isn't going to just turn this team around overnight.

I agree Richards will be forcing the hand if he continues to play so poorly. I am not sold on trading Gaborik however. The guy is still ultimately the teams best goal scorer. They should move him at the deadline next year if they aren't going to contend, and/or don't see him as a part of the future. Which is all likely.
I'm not looking for overnight . This is just anothe makeover and test to see if this next group of " pack liners " in
