What is wrong with the idea of a couple of losing seasons? Now wait and hear me out before answering.
When you consider the idea of finishing in the eighth spot and securing the playoff position, a first round exit and the subsequent 15-17 draft pick. Compare that to finishing in the bottom five and securing a top rated draft pick - maybe even the first overall pick and you have Gordie Clark doing the evaluations instead of Glen Slather.
Besides the culture shock, the idea of the Rangers actually floundering near the bottom to replenish and become a strong team should be a welcome alternative.
We don't have the GM to play in the free agent market when considering his 10 year track record so why not embrace a plan that gives us the alternative to control cap spending with the influx of new, young, and talented players. This plan already has a proven track record of success if done properly.
What do we have to lose? Our reputation? One cup in 69 years reputation?
