I dont' really think the Rangers are so bereft of talent that they can't play an offensive style, but the key is getting everyone playing well. If you're not stacked with superstars (or even sometimes when you are), if your offense struggles then you just plain look like crap even if you have talented players.

Nash, Stepan, Brassard, Zucarello, Callahan, Richards (to some extent...sometimes), and Hagelin to some degree are skilled guys who can play a possession game if they get it all going (Hagelin is good at hanging onto the puck at least). Bottom line players like Boyle, Dorsett, Powe, Asham, and Pyatt aren't bad if used correctly. The Rangers have guys who can move the puck on the back end (McDonagh, Moore, Staal, Del Zotto).

They're not a super skilled team, but they're skilled enough that if they are coached right they should be able to do well. They never really seemed in sync with each other last year
