The discussion over a potential roster move on defense begs the question: Who is expendable on this team?
Granted, there’s a lot to consider: age, productivity, salary, depth at a given position.
I’m pretty sure most Rangers fans don’t want to go down the same prospects-for-stars road that was traveled in the past, but it does seem like the Rangers have some capital to work with; and they also might be in a position to unload some hefty salaries to open up some opportunities down the road.
I don’t have a set answer in my head, but I suppose I have a few thoughts. Let’s hear it from your end first.
In the meantime, I’m headed out for my first skate of the season with my usual crew. Something tells me my fellow pucksters are going to take great pleasure in putting the know-it-all hockey writer in his place. More on that tomorrow….if I’m still upright.
