There's two extremes. Overly defensive, and run and gun. There's no reason a team with offensive talent (not a lot, but enough.) should play block every shot dump and chase hockey. There's enough talent here to play a little looser. We shouldn't be either extreme, there should be some middle ground.

Edit: And if you really feel the Rangers need EVERYTHING right to make the playoffs, I guess you've never heard of Henrik Lundqvist, who can single handedly drag them kicking and screaming into the big dance. Or you're just incredibly pessimistic on what looks to be a solid roster.
