I don't think the question is whether the Rangers are going to be the odds on favorite to win the Stanley Cup next year. Rather it's a question of whether it looks like the Rangers will move beyond this cycle of one or two steps forward, then a step (at least) back.

Just look at the turnover in the roster: how many players are still here from the 2009-2010 roster? From the 2010-2011 roster? Look at the turnover this year.

Is this a stable organization that looks like it can solve the holes in its' roster and build on making the Conference finals? That's the big question and how Lundqvist answers it will determine whether he's here for more than one more year.
