Bargaining agreement and Draft article

The Rangers, on the other hand, have drafted reasonably well over the past 10 years, but unfortunately their management has had a bad habit of trading away their promising youth for expensive "quick-fix" veterans that usually failed to deliver.

Given their fire sale this past season of many of their top veteran players, it appears the Rangers are finally going to look to within to rebuild their roster. If they indeed stick to rebuilding from within or by obtaining more affordable younger talent via trades, they probably won't go much over a cap, since the combined salaries of Jaromir Jagr and Bobby Holik would eat up a significant chunk of their payroll.

But then again, can the Rangers front office avoid the temptation of wallowing in the free-agent market again? If the rebuilding process goes too slowly for their liking, ownership could green-light another expensive foray into the UFA market.

i think they might finally have gotten it this time (with the rebuilding.) but then again, anything is possible...i guess it really all depends on who is available and at what price. but with the uncertainty of the CBA i think they will be true to the rebuilding theme for the short term. that's not to say they won't pick up a few role/character players to fill some holes...but i don't see them signing a guy like Naslund (if he was available on the open market.)
