It's not just Crawford and the difference in their salaries.

It's Crawford, 2+ million in savings, the cap increase and the Richards buy out means retaining all of our current players and adding another top line forward of which there are many in 2014 (as of today)

The Rangers defensively are going to be sound enough that you don't have to rely on your goalie being the best player on the ice every night.

Adding an offensive player for a top line role will also mean that the pressure to HAVE to win games 1-0 and 2-1 are a thing of the past.
