Phil Posted December 19, 2018 Share Posted December 19, 2018 I will say this again, too, not for the first time and certainly not the last: The Rangers should not trade Kevin Hayes, whose shorthanded goal with 40 seconds remaining broke a 1-1 tie, unless the impending free agent?s ask on a new contract is completely unrealistic or an interested third party offers a young, first-pair right defenseman (see: Cale Makar, UMass/Colorado) in exchange for No. 13. Both of these hypotheticals are unlikely. I don?t care whether the team is ready to contend in two years or four. This building process will not be aided by trading the center who has been the team?s best player for the past two years. All teams ? even, or perhaps especially, ones in the Rangers? position ? need linchpins. When you find them, you don?t send them away. You don?t sacrifice your few known quantities for a roll of the dice. That would represent a full measure that would leave me empty. https://nypost.com/2018/12/19/rangers-cant-let-unfair-system-force-them-into-tearing-up-team/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
