We need a RHD that fits this system. If we replaced Del Zotto with a righthanded D-Man who could skate and pass, our defense would be set.
We need a passing center so we can move Richards to left wing. Richards was MUCH better at wing this season. Nash will move to right wing where he's better. With Stepan, Brassard, and a capable top 6 center, we will have adequate center depth. Richards on the wing will give us solid wing depth.
The East is not good this season. We are far from out of it.
The east is not good. But neither are the Rangers. Thinking this team is a cup contender is ludicrous. They can't even win if they don't score first.
