I am in the boat of re-signing both. Fans have their feelings on the matter, and everyone wants to talk about how great their cupboard is on HF.

But any rebuild is a 3-4 year climb. Without those two, the Rangers are going to sink in the standings no matter what.

The problem is that by doing that you essentially become Columbus in 2009 with the core in the place right now, plus Henrik Lundqvist and McD and Step and prospects and draft picks.

Do you really want to build around a set of players? This combination isn't winning now, will it get better with the assurance of low-end minutes now and the near future?

The team finished a rebuild to tear it all down again like Florida? An economically deprived hockey market?

I don't know. Fan sentiment is one thing, and journalist's commentary is another. It will ultimately come down to the brass and what they decide.
