Let me try to relate my concern to Kreider and move on, because I don't discount your point about salary.

My concern is the Rangers are missing Centers who win faceoffs, hit, play D, and can possess the puck in the O zone. All so they can grab as many guys who can score goals on paper or have the potential to, and then wonder why the team is inconsistent. It's inconsistent because scoring is not just about having guys who finish plays, it's about playing well across the whole rink, and retaining a structured game. It's not the NBA, you can't just hand the puck to some guy in the offensive half and let him go 1-on-1.

I could be wrong, I certainly don't think Dubi and Kreider will seal anyones fate here, but they better move forward in a way that plugs that hole (and token point shot defenseman comment) or they'll never win.
