This idea that we have to compete now because Lundqvist is 30 is just hampering the team.
I never implied he was going to carry this current team to the Cup. But with the proper supporting cast, Lundqvist will do just that. The Rangers were extremely close last year. The framework of this current club is mostly the same as last year's. We ought to work with it, not implode it.

Remind me in five seasons when Lundqvist is on the decline how blowing up the foundation of a team that made the ECF and missed out on the President's Trophy by a point the year prior was a prudent course of action.
