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.
With the Richards buy out AND the cap going up most likely, what makes you think the Rangers can't afford to bring one in even with giving Hank 8M a year?
