This I disagree with. The Rangers best play is not nearly good enough to compete against the likes of the Kings or Bruins. They did not loose to lack of skill. They lost because the bigger team took a big enough bite of them to where there was no getting off of the matt.

I am not expecting huge injections. Nor calling for massive changes. I am however, saying that the metamorphosis needs to start.

To me, if the team wants to be a true contender, they need is desperate.
There is a line though, speed, size and talent. I think the Kings won not just because they were bigger, they won because they have several players who have size, speed and talent. Rangers have Boyle who is big but not fast nor very talented at least offensively. They had Pyatt who was big.

Trying to get players who have the three traits of size, speed and talent, pretty tough to get unless they draft them or trade for them prior to them breaking out.
