The young pieces are in place. The Rangers need to start making smaller moves to compliment the core, not add another huge piece. I feel pretty confident building around Stepan, Nash, McDonagh, Staal, MDZ, and Kreider.

We DO need another young 2nd line C - hopefully Miller can ease his way into that role, I like how he's looked at center this season.
Look, I really think it's way too early in the process to be classifying Stepan as a 1C going forward. All the other 1C's in the league are way superior to him in size, skills, production, etcetera.
If Richards isn't going to man up, then buy him out and get a legitimate 1C!
