I am of the belief, and 6 of the last 8 cup winning goalies agrees, that you do not need an elite level goalie to win a cup.

I believe we have one of the better defensive groups in the NHL. It's because of that that I am confident on taking the step back from Hank to Crawford.

While you attribute all of our medicore success to Hank, I attribute the LACK of significant success to our inability to score consistently.

I would gladly take the 2.5 million is savings and apply that towards addressing what has been the teams achillies heel the last few seasons.

If a team is able to score regularly both at ES and on the PP, the need to rely on the goalie to steal games is no longer there.

Lundqvist, as good as he is, has shown time and again that he is un-able to carry the team through the PO's.

He shouldn't have to.
I still cant believe you think $2.5M solves the Rangers' scoring problems. Thats incredible.
