We have no depth to do well on a playoff run. Our players will be exhausted like they were last year and make boneheaded mistakes. I'd love them to prove me wrong, but as Synergy27 said, it'll hurt less to go in with low expectations. I don't think the Rangers ever win a cup with Staal as their best d-man and Richards as their top center. Good, not great players.
Pretty reasonable post except for a few things:
-i wouldn't give up on Kreider and
Miller so fast by classifying them
as lousy picks.
-Staal is not our best defenseman
going forward, it's McDonagh(not that it really matters because if you chose Staal, Girardi or McD, they are all fairly equal in ability and none of them are that wonderful!
As presently constructed, the Rangers are a bottom of the pack team because they don't have much top tier talent and their depth stinks!
