How is it different, unless you think the Rangers FO, staff and team dont consider themselves Cup contenders.

Nash was worth every asset. Sorry but I'm not going to lose sleep over not having a 1st rounder this year, and Im sure Sather and Torts feel the same.

You think the Rangers arent a deep organization. Did you ever think the reason why is because they choose to rush their prospects rather than develop them deliberately?

If Hartford had Kreider, Miller, Hagelin, Stepan, Fast, Lindberg, McIlrath, Thomas, maybe even Del Zotto, with Skjei and Nieves in college, I have a feeling youd feel differently.

Maybe Sather is hedging his best that all those guys mentioned, in addition to Staal, McDonagh, Girardi, and Callahan will all be in their prime by the time some random 2nd and 3rd rounder from the 2013 draft wont be old enough or good enough to crack the lineup.
