How is Pitkanen a significant upgrade on Tyutin let alone Oiler posters asking for Staal... this thread is comical at best.
Tyutin is one of our better defenders imo. It's funny he has a less than stellar season and all of a sudden he's trade bait. If Tyutin is traded this organization imo heads right back into the quick fix direction of trading home grown youth for an "established" (if you can call Joni that) product that may or may not even fit into what the Rangers are trying to do. Further what trade in the last few seasons has Sather made that would indicate the Rangers may even consider moving Tyutin? I don't see any indicators.
I don't see it as worth the risk but again everyone who is in love with what Pitkanen's "potential" is.... will continue to insist we "upgrade" with him.
