I hate how this team blows up its roster every other season. And to do it after an ECF run without even managing to address the many needs of this team just made no sense to me. The team needed more depth on both offense and defense and more mobility, and instead they lost depth and got slower while losing their identity in the process.
The recent moves at the deadline were made to correct the problems the organization made for themselves, so instead of trying to build upon last year's success, they are trying to get back to where they were last season. One step forward, two steps back.
Part of the problem lies in the fact that the Rangers have been unable to draft top line talent, forcing them to go outside the organization and spend tons of money of free agent forwards who usually underperform and rarely remain here for the duration of their contract. And then the vicious cycle rears its ugly head again - dump Gomez and it clears money for Gaborik. Dump Gaborik and it clears money for whatever free agent they will chase next.
