    Jeff Gorton, Glen Sather Pen Message to Fans Ahead of Deadline

    In case you had any doubts left that the Rangers intend to among the busiest and most active teams at the looming trade deadline, you can safely bury them now.

    They dont do this for Nash, Grabner, maybe Holden, or Pavelec. Not even for Miller... this is them telling the fans Zuccarello is a goner... he's the only player fans care about that might fit that description.

    Can't complain about Young, skill, speed and character.
    As they've said, on the fly.

    In a weird way, I'm kind of excited to watch this team post-deadline. I appreciate that they are going to make the difficult choice to part ways with fan favorites for a better team long term. We've had a lot of success (i get no cup but I feel like we've been a contender basically every year for a while now) and it's going to be time for a new era.

    Doubt it, too difficult to move that contract. This is about McD and Zucc as mentioned above.

    Yea, top-6 Paul Carey is going to be awesome! lol

    It'll be fun to see which young guys are brought up, but the team should be a ton more fun to watch next year. There will probably be a new coach, and everyone will be competing for spots. They shouldn't be anywhere near as lethargic as they have been.

    yeah I know, but anything is possible. It's tough to think that there'd be a team that is contending now though that would need a goalie /be willing to give up as much as it would take/take on the contract

    All the contenders have a better goalie than he is, on a deal worth half of his. He's staying, unfortunately.

    Most excited I've been all season.

    Trade anyone for at a minimum solid value if possible.

    dont tell her. See how long it takes her to figure it out.

    My wife learned all the players, numbers, etc the first season we were together. Next season, when half the team was different, she got pissed and stopped paying attention.

    in a sense you're right, but to me it kind of seems like there is no fire in this team right now. Have a team full of guys whose careers depend on what they show for the last bit of the season and who knows what we'll see.

    What we will see is more loses, which isn’t a bad thing at this point in time.
