You have to actually suck to get the Malkins and Toews of the world. Unfortunately, the Rangers' reaction to having a roster that is clearly bottom 20% of the league has been to pursue every means possible to get up to like the 40-50% mark. And that's a recipe for perpetual mediocrity.
Exactly right. The mindset here has been the fans won't tolerate the team hitting rock bottom when in fact in the early 2000's (when we were a given to finish out of the playoffs) everybody I know was desperate for a complete rebuild.

The re-signing of Messier in 2000 amongst other poorly conceived and constructed moves was a total travesty and a disgace and emblamatic of how lousy management is here with an owner who doesn't give a **** about the hockey team and a GM who is clueless and completely out of touch!
