The New York Rangers exceeded expectations in the 2011-12 season, only to fall short of their hopes in May. So far this off-season, the Rangers have made some questionable moves, but with the clearly-defined goal of adding toughness.
Now that the largest targets available, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, have been recruited by the Minnesota Wild, only a handful of impact players remain available. New York still has glaring needs to address in order to put the team over the top. and there are pieces remaining to help bring the Stanley Cup back to the "city that never sleeps."
