Stoll and Greene have been Kings for six years since being traded. Only Carter, Gaborik, Williams, Regher, Mitchell and Richards

The 2012 Rangers had 13 if you count MZA, Kreider, McDonagh and Sauer. The 2014 team had eight - 10 if you count Miller and Moore.

I would very much like to see the end of acquiring overpriced or overage veterans and just for ***** and giggles see what a 2017 lineup of mostly homegrown Rangers with a 35-year-old Lundqvist can accomplish.

No Sather. No Nash.
The Kings also drafted Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds. But they traded them for players that helped them win the cup.

Carter, Gaborik, Williams were extremely influential in their cup this year.

All you are asking for is that we play Fast, Lindberg instead of Glass and Lombardi.

Home grown:
Kreider, Stepan, MZA, Hagelin, JT Miller, McDonagh, Staal, Girardi, D.Moore, J. Moore (sort of), Lundqvist, Talbot

Not Home grown:

MSL, Nash, Brassard, Stempinak, Lombardi, Glass, Boyle, Klein

That's 12 players I would consider home grown (drafted or developed by the Rangers) I think it's a good mix.
