You don't have to agree with just as many Ranger fans don't.
I didnt say it was a problem that was Rangers exclusive, its mutually exclusive now that you mention it. Its a problem that will grow and grow, with the salary cap going up and up until another lockout has to happen.
Your right also, I dont agree with it, you needed a first line center great, you signed your rival teams first line center. You can see why guys still begrudge your team, and the GM that signed him. Surely you dont ever expect the most stalwart of fans to ever give up jabbing at that dubious signing???
Spin it, we sign Staal as a UFA, in several years time, after all those years of us hating him, and you loving him (i never loved Gomez), then think for just one second, ouch thats gotta hurt. But hey, were seasoned vets in this practice.
