It's more possible than most of you believe. The biggest problem is that the Rangers need to send salary (read Rozsival) back to Florida as part of the deal. Florida also needs more current day value than the above package. Michael isn't going to be very happy of this happens but it is certainly a possibility. Look at this from Florida's perspective -- trading JBo for a player of equal value is unlikely because of his contract circumstances. Getting a centerpiece who's a 75% value and then adding other pieces is probably the best possible outcome they can hope for. Rozy and 3-4 pieces is much, much better value than Atlanta got for Hossa at the trade deadline. He's signed for 4 years at a fair market rate and Rozy and JBo are a salary cap wash this year. Next year can be dealt with duiring the summer (bye bye Mara, Kalinin and others) The only guy I think is off the board as far as a trade goes is Cherepanov and Sanguinetti may be also depending on what management sees. If the Rangers are working on something big,. I'm betting on this deal.
