But unfortunately Sather has killed this team with these contracts, that no body will touch.
So we have to either sit tight and be terrible.
Or trade guys like Callahan (who we can replace from within).
It's a awful situation the Rangers are in right now.
I still believe the future is bright with our prospects. But right now, this situation on the NHL club, and in Hartford is terrible.
We're both Ranger fans. I know how you feel about the team right now because I feel the same way. The problem is that you're selling low and buying even lower.
Mueller has a ton of potential, but so did Zherdev. So have countless other players throughout the years. I think our lineup is stronger with Callahan in it than it is with Mueller
. Now, that could change, but I'm not willing to risk a quality player like Callahan to see if it does. Some guys just don't have the head to be a consistent NHLer and Mueller strikes me as one of those guys.
