OK, professor so what's your solution?
Sign a ton of UFAs and trade for aging stars at the deadline like Carolina did?
Be bottom feeders for almost a decade like Chicago, Pittsburgh, just to get top-3 picks?
Miss the playoffs 6 straight years like the Kings did, then trade every top prospect you have for massive contracts Richards and Carter? Trade two 1sts and a 3rd for Penner?
There's only one model the Rangers can follow -- Boston/Detroit.
It took Detroit 20 years to develop into a powerhouse in the early 90s -- and even then they were habitual playoff chokers until 1995. Before winning the Cup, Boston hadnt been past the 2nd round in 18 years. 18 yrs without a CF.

Yeah...all have hit their ceiling.
