I'm just worried that this isn't a case of when the Rangers got Tim Kerr (ironically from San Jose for Brian Mullen in the 1991 Expansion Draft) or when Graves or any other power forward just declines overnight when they turn 31-32. If they sign him to a 4-5 year deal, that's risky business.

Another way to look at this is for next year. Let's say the lineup for arguments sake is mostly Nash/Richards/Cally/Stepan/Gaborik/Hagelin/Zuc/Miller/Kreider/Fasth/Lindberg and Clowe.

That's a lot of skill and speed but not exactly a lot of grit.

You'll need guys like Clowe and even McLIrath or a UFA Dman to be the police on the ice and prevent nonsense.
