Man. Judging from the product on the ice, the posts in this thread, some of the stuff out in the media....

The Rangers are really at a crossroads here. More than ever before really.

Unfortunately, as long as Lundqvist is here a true rebuild will never happen. You guys have to realize that. For the next 8 years, regardless, the Rangers are going to push to be a competitive team in the NHL. Right now is a major inflection point. Do we continue down mediocrity, and hope that a big signing / trade finally puts us over the top?

Do we true rebuild and make Lundqvist's next 3 or 4 years here tough?

Do we restock wisely, while losing important future assets? A guy like Miller, Fast, Lindberg, or Skjei? Or draft picks?

Yikes.

Consistently mediocre. Consistently clinching a playoff berth in the last game of the season. Destined for a 1st or 2nd round exit.

Push through this season. Trade Girardi for a top 6 forward. Trade DZ for an RHD of equal value. Don't re-sign Callahan. Put everything we have into Phaneuf and Stastny in the off-season. Now THAT is New York Rangers hockey
