In my mind, thats sadder than any tanking.
When we failed to make the playoffs in 1998 and were on the way to not making it in 1999, we should've began our rebuild. This isn't just something I'm saying now, I was screaming about it every single season from 1999 to 2004 on the AOL Rangers board.
Graves, Stevens, MacLean, Tikkanen, Leetch, Schneider, Samuelson and Beukeboom could've brought us very significant value back. I have no doubt that they would bring back 8-10 first round pick or similar quality prospects, plus some later picks as well.
Within a couple of years, we'd have a very good team with guys like Savard, Nedved, Kovalev and Knuble surrounded by a very nice group of rookies.
