With Rangers news almost non existant thanks mainly to the Olympics I thought we could play a little ‘GM for the day’…
In the summer, assuming Sather doesnt do anything TOO ridiculous lets assume the only definite roster members of the squad are this;
Gaborik, Lundqvist, Staal, Dubinsky,Callahan, Del Zotto, Drury, Avery, Anisimov.
What changes would you make? Assume you cannot move both the R+R brothers.
Personally my changes would start from within. I’d tell Tortorella his job is safe but we’re going young – no matter what. I’d entice Stepan out of college, the same with McDonagh and i’d put up with the growing pains you’ll get with Sanguinetti up in the big league. I’d go young. Then i’d add a mid tier sniper, for short term. I’d bring back Prospal to help lead the kids brigade.
Players i’d move out? I’d trade Girardi at this years deadline. He’s asolid top 4 guy with some upside and given the picks that have gone on players so far a 2nd rd pick would be within reach. I’d be willing to move anyone other than the above for picks. No mercy.
Hell… if it got me a 1st i’d even move Dubinsky. As i said, no mercy.
