Every team relies on showing up at the rink everyday but in comparison, the Rangers are obviously the more skilled team. They can play a skill game.

They should be gaining the zone WITH the puck, not without it. Gaborik and Richards work great in tight areas with the puck. Too much of their game predicates upon creating offense from the other side of it.
Well said, I believe you informatively and thoroughly answered his ?,
Would only add you forgot the constant shot blocking, beyond reason, even to extent of 6Gs on the ice, resulting in players shifting out of place and getting injured.
