Why don't the Rangers have those players?
The worst part about it is when they do have that draft position where they could maybe just maybe luck out and pick up one of those types of players, they take reach picks or draft for need, a need that player has no hope of filling at the NHL for several years. Or they took goalies.
Exactly, time to end the cycle of mediocrity! Take your lumps and build the team back up the right way. This season is this groups last chance in my opinion. If this season ends up an epic failure I think they seriously need to consider making major changes starting with trades at the deadline and carrying over into free agency. Problem is, if Sather's still pulling the strings after this season it won't make any difference, you gotta cut the problem off at the head.
Like Rangerboy said, maybe this core has been together too long and are way too comfortable
