Contender 2 years from now

Created by: LGR
Initial Creation Date: Apr 30, 2021

Team: 2022-23 New York Rangers
Team Explanation
Mika cant be our 1C if this team wants to contend for cups. He goes invisible when the games matter. If there is a chance that we can snag a franchise guy like Eichel he can thrive here with the talent around him.
Buffalo gets the equivalent of 5 first rounders in this package. a near point per game winger, a top 6 young C, 2 Top 4 D men, and a 1st. I think this is fair.

Our defense needs to get tougher and bigger. Bring in Schnieder and Robertson. These guys are 6'2-6'3 and play with an edge. Lindgren and Trouba also play with an edge. Leave Foxy and Nils to be the offensive drivers on the backend.
Locked up Igor long term cause he proved to be the number 1 guy this year.

This whole team needs to learn to be tougher and play with an edge. Last night was the lowest point of the entire rebuild. Huge opportunity squandered without even a fight. Embarrassing. Maybe with this core we can go deep into the playoffs. But Im telling you Im not convinced on Zibanejad being our best center if we want to win a cup.

You're overevaluing your players so hard. Buchnevich has some real value, true. But beside that.... Chytil is a 3rd center and I don't think he will become a top 6 guy. He has more a projecture of a guy like Faksa. Jones played like 5 games calm down lmao. Nothing is saying he willl become amazing, he did nothing at the NHL level. Miller showed great things this year but it's waaay to early to judge him and say right away he's a top 4. To have Eichel you'll have to move Strome Buchnevich (with extension) and either Kakko or Laffy, + some other minor pieces. Suck it up and accept it

They're effectively a contender now though 🤔

7th best team goal differential in the league

If just one of Laffy or KK step up next season...

Why do you feel "toughness and edge" are needed?

Better possession through improved depth their key

Eichel is an overpaid, underperforming, spoiled brat who can't hack it. Eichel should be the one "Sucking it up".
Man up be a leader....
He doesnt bc he cant...
That offer is too much for this guy.... Keep him.

Man I thought us Leafs & Habs fans could get a bit delusional at times. I think Ranger fans are taking the spot as the most delusional fan base.

Eichel is one of the top players in the league. Stop being dumb.

Eichel admittedly doesn't love hockey off the ice lol. Why would we blow our load on Jack Hypeall, he's like an opposite Messier. Rather keep our kids and find other options. Thanks anyway...
