John Kreiser at NHL.com looks at the key questions for Eastern Conference teams and compares the Rangers to a doughnut...
New York Rangers -
What do the Rangers and the doughnuts at Tim Horton's (a new arrival in the Big Apple) have in common? A hole in the middle -- in the Rangers' case, that means the absence of a No. 1 center. With Scott Gomez gone to Montreal and high-scoring but oft-injured winger Marian Gaborik signed from Minnesota, the Rangers now have a winger who can put the puck in the net but no one who resembles a No. 1 center who can get him the puck -- and are tight enough against the cap that they likely won't be able to deal for one unless they're willing to give up some young talent.
...the Rangers are more like a doughnut factory there are so many holes (center, defense, power play).
...Sather took some chances this off-season, hopefully they'll pay off.
