I watch games and use the stat sheet.

A large portion of teams develop their talent from homegrown players. I feel that those should secondary pieces via FA signings and trades, but the bulk and core of the team should be drafted. The Rangers are doing well in that regard, they just haven't struck an elite player yet outside of Lundqvist. Sure fire elite players a

It shouldn't matter how old I was in the dark ages. The same organization that didn't have a clue during the dark ages are still the same team managing it right now (Sather). And what Sather's shown me in 13 yrs is a lack of vision for today's game.

I could care less about the 1994 anymore. Believe me, I own VHS sets of that team and I used to watch re-runs each day while getting into the game. However, there is a time where you've got to move on. I didn't get to watch it or experience it, but it was freaking 19 years ago.
