I don't care who the coach is. The Rangers don't have that type of talent. They just don't.
Stepan-Nash is quite a great combo.

Stepan has had a comparable season to Kopitar thus far, at least IMO.. Outproduced him in the regular season and only had two less points in 1 less game in the playoffs (including more goals). Nash also had more points than Brown has right now in the playoffs.

Kopitar is an incredible player, but I think we take how good Stepan really is for granted. There's still a lot of room to improve, too, Stepan is still only 23 years old.

We definitely don't have the Richards-Carter duo that they have, though, nor do we have a Drew Doughty.

But, that's the beauty of the NHL. There is no set way to build a team. I love the pieces this team has in place. I think they're pretty close.
