I don't know. Seems like chasing your tail to me.
I think its a "excuse" to dump some players. Like you said below, you don't sign a player to a 7 year contract and then dump him. That would raise some eyebrowns in lockerrooms all across the league. Sign with the Rangers as a UFA and you could end up in a living nightmare in the minors in a hurry...

I think thats what Dallas did with Avery more then anything, created an excuse to get rid of him, for example. Sure Avery passed a line, didn't mesh with the lockerroom et c.

But if Slats can send out a message that Redden/Rozsival/Drury/Gomez just doesn't fit into the new coachs plans it might soften the hit on our reputation.

RangerBoy- It sounds very credible that Slats called around about Gomez -- but isn't that kind of his mo? I don't think we can draw conclusions of that that its Gomez who will go. If I know Slats right he called around and asked for the moon in return for Gomez...

He did the same thing with JJ in 07'.
