    I thought this too but my one concern is that they wouldn't have enough players to field a team. Someone has to play the remainder of the season. Also, if they wait 'til the deadline, they won't be able to move everyone (part of my reasoning for wanting to start early).

    They can take back guys on expiring deals and bring up Lias and Lettieri. Play Belesky.

    Nah, probably overpaid by a million or so I'd say. That's not really problematic next year.

    Yea but what's the point of keeping him for one year? Every penny will matter if they're going after big fish.

    Agreed. I think this season should be a complete wash. Finish as low as possible with as many 1st round picks as possible, blow it up entirely, and bring in some high-end talent in the summer. If that's the plan, every penny matters. I don't think there's room for middle of the road players making more than what they're worth.

    A similar question to this is if the Rangers will be open to taking a couple of salary dumps in exchange for picks/prospects. Doubtful if their plan is to chase FAs this summer, but it would make sense to do that otherwise.

    Everyone NOT named Jim Ramsay 'cause he's no rubber!

    Add the f'in team bus driver to the list! Complete the purge.

    I'm losing my mind today...the trades, sales, distribution of train tickets (ref: Punch Imlach) must begin today.

    Everyone has been looking at deadline moves in a bubble, as if we will be the only team selling. Take a look at the bottom three teams in the West, Chicago, St. Louis and LA. Three profound underachievers with rosters chock full of mature very big names. Sure many have no-trades, but many don't want to be part of a rebuild . The point is, we cannot expect premium return for our modest trade bait when contenders may already have shot their wads with the kind of stuff Chic-StL-LA may be offering.
