Average. It's good enough for Rangers fans.
I look at it this way:

Goalie - Top notch

Defense - MCD - GIR
Stl - STRL
Klein -Mor

Some weakness to Moore's D but gd puck movement
Overall a top notch D

PP - Average to good
PP D - GD

The problem---

Lack of 5 on 5 scoring.

Nash and the PP is carrying the team now so they look competitive.

After Nash are we looking at 4 or 5 players projected to score 16-20 goals?

The team needs the 1st line center and a secondary sniper.

Score a few more goals and the other flaws would become less noticeable.

The current team, an early to mid KO. Pick up a player (at what cost? / salary etc?) or two and maybe they could go somewhat further?
