The Rangers missed their chance. Even the 11-12 team was average. They looked like a bubble team for most of the season but had a great start to the year. Barely made it to the ECF. Took 7 games to beat two "lesser" teams. They should have taken a step back in the middle of the decade in order to take a big step forward. If they had been able to draft talent to build around, this would have been an elite team. A couple elite players supplemented by guys like Dubinsky, Callahan, Anisimov, Hagelin, etc.

Sather can't help himself. He loves to make the big splash. How many awful FA signings has he made? How many terrible trades? Now we're locked into a mammoth deal for Lundqvist, a huge deal for Nash, and he's bumbled his way into an excuse to "go for it" every year even though the team is poorly built; It doesn't compete, lacks physicality, and lacks skill.

What a joke.
