All this back and forth can make ones head spin a bit. I'll say this and consider it accurate.

The current roster core:
Hank
Del Zotto
Staal
Girardi
McDonagh
Stepan
Callahan
Hagelin

and the current prospect core:
Kreider
Miller
Fasth
Linberg
McIlrath
Thomas
....is the best we've had in decades.

The Rangers will NEVER do a bolt off rebuild. It will NEVER happen. EVER.

I hated to part with Dubi and Arty, I was against the deal, but a guy like Nash becomes available, you would be crazy not to go get him at that price. I realize that now...and I'm willing to admit I was wrong. Same with Richards. Who would have figured that a guy with his credentials would mope around like a guy who's had his puppy shot every morning at sunrise. Not me. He was a guy they needed and not getting him would have been the only thing worse than where we are with him now.

For the Rangers, this will be a longer, harder road. We can't suck and tank it for high draft picks like other franchises. Blessing and a curse. It's better than it was, maybe not by much yet, but I think we are getting there. Even if the getting is painfully slow. You role the dice sometimes or you never progress or win.
