The New York Rangers used to be viewed as the place where older players went to end their career, complete with larger than needed salaries and egos.
Thankfully, general manager Glen Sather and team owner James Dolan now understand that this path is not the best way to achieve their goals of future championships.
The way to do so, as they have learned, is by bringing in fresh, young talent that can blossom under the great direction of their few veterans and team of excellent coaches.
Three such Rangers' youngsters affirming this theory to be correct are Derek Stepan, Ryan McDonagh and Michael Del Zotto.
All three players each bring their own individual skills to the team and have proved to be a very welcome addition to the organization.
If they continue on the path they are on, they are all certain to be future NHL All-Stars.
