I actually see them doing a lot of what you're saying.

They have backed off of signing the big free agent by and large. Yes Richards is and was a big FA but he was also a part of that "core concept" we all saw and loved last season. And with the cap, they really can't sign a "sexy free agent" every summer.

They have been developing players.

The lack of success on the power play is amazingly curious.

It's not as simple as drafting guys who can shoot.

I said the Rangers need health because it forces them to play player before they're really ready (Kreider, Miller, Thomas).
