Not saying we will but the possibility of home ice even in the conversation makes your argument that much more ridiculous.
NO GM NO ORGANIZATION IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD SELL IN THE POSITION WE ARE IN
. I don't want to come off as rude but this just isn't done. you want to talk when/if the team is hanging around the 9th 10th spot right before the olympic break fine, we can talk about being sellers but if the team is fighting for 4th or 5th in the conference there is no discussion no debate.
Not saying this is apples to apples but the Canadiens, who finished 1st in the Eastern Conference in 2008, traded Huet to Washington for a 2nd round pick at the trade deadline that year.
With that said, I would agree with you and wait to see where the Rangers are at around the Olympic break before selling. But as any GM should do, Sather should be looking at both sides of the equation in order to make the Rangers better now and in the future.
