Is there room for both Fasth and Christian Thomas? Two smallish wingers.
I like both these guys as prospects, but they reveal a problem the Rangers have had for as long as I've been a fan:
Too many small players.
When you have a team with a potential line up of Hagelin, Fasth, Thomas, MZA, etc. I'm not sure how well you do against a team like Boston.
The Rangers need to be built for the playoffs in order to succeed in the playoffs. It's that simple. On the flip side finding bigger players that can skate and play is not so easy.
Teams like Boston, L.A. and Chicago have found a way to do it.
