The Rangers Time Is Now

Mike Hume at ESPN New York feels that the Rangers off-season moves give them a three year window to win the Stanley Cup…

“The offseason work of GM Glen Sather and the rest of the front office has brought the Blueshirts both high-end talent and long-term stability. With the signing of Brad Richards and the extension of restricted free agents Brian Boyle, Brandon Dubinsky and Ryan Callahan, the Rangers’ core roster will be locked in place for the next three seasons. The Rangers should be, and likely will be, considered Stanley Cup contenders this fall. But the clock will now be ticking.

After these next three seasons, that window could close in a hurry. In the summer of 2014, Callahan, Boyle, Marian Gaborik, Dan Girardi and Henrik Lundqvist will all hit unrestricted free agency.

Simply put, New York’s time is now.”

…i couldn’t agree more with Hume. And this is essentially the reason I was so against the Richards signing. Instead of the Rangers building a team that could be perennial Cup contenders for years to come they now have just a three year window to get it done.

…now having said that, if the Rangers make a couple of smart deadline moves (unfortunately meaning giving up young talent) I think they can win the Cup which I guess is the point of the Richards move.

…let’s hope this team can deal with the pressure because there will be lots of it from the fans and the media.
