    Quinn knows that this is a re-build, but there's just no way he signed on and said he wasn't going to try to win games.
    Right. It's the job of the GM to dramatically limit his options, is all. Like Tim Murray-era Sabres.

    No fucking shit he doesn't think like that. Its a message board, for fans. We're having a hypothetical conversation, as fans. As fans, some of us want the Rangers to play well yet lose, a lot, in order to get a high draft pick to aid in the long term future of the franchise.

    Yea, I wish he would hurry up and do something about it already.

    Correct and if Quinn is holding players accountable then he would need to held accountable for not playing he best player Hank.

    We traded Grabner to the Devils less than a year ago.

    Lol.

    I think the idea that rivals don't trade is always kind of silly. If you took the number of trades that the Rangers have made with the Devils, Isles, and Flyers and compared it to another 3 teams, how would that look? Are there considerably fewer trades with those 3 than, like, Vancouver, EDM, and Calgary? SJ, LAK, and Anaheim? Maybe there is, but trade volume is so small that I'm not sure there's much of a correlation.
