Planning on Lindberg to step right in and Brassard to maintain his strong play is exactly the type of logic trap the Rangers usually fall into. Probably factor in a panic signing of Weiss as well. Which all said results in a 7-9 finish and nothing much to speak of in May.

Center depth is priority #1A/1B (with goaltending) for building successful NHL hockey teams. Again I'm not saying they shouldn't buy out Richards...don't see h recovering here and there is the injury risk.
Agreed. The Rangers assumed Kreider would be able to step in as top 6 forward this season and that didn't work out. Can't pencil Lindberg into the lineup just yet.

I'm concerned about Brassard as well. He's been good so far, but then again, it's a small sample size and he has suffered from inconsistency in the past.
