I'd be all for trading Prospal--but not for a pick! He's worth a solid defenseman. Same thing with Jokinen.

I'm amazed at so-called Ranger fans who want to go through 98-04 again, and this time try to do it "right".
The thing is we aren't that far away from being a good team. The reality is even if by some miracle they make the playoffs you and I know they aren't winning close to 16 games. So what's the point of another 1st or 2nd round exit when you could make moves to better position the team for the future? Sure, our 1st rounder could be a bust...but the fact of the matter is the #4 overall pick is a lot more of a sure thing than the #14 overall. And if we can sell some assets for a few extra picks to increase our chances of getting it right even better.
