By your logic, Edmonton fans should be advocating that THEY buy too.
The job of management is to take off the fan glasses and make a realistic assessment of the team. You imply by your statement that you can understand why the Edmonton brass would be selling... yet you can't see why the Rangers who are currently 8th from the bottom should perhaps be looking at things the same way?
I can never root against my team when the game is going on, but when it comes to analyzing front office transactions, I have no problem taking a step back and making the call on this season - we can either fight a losing fight and MAYBE win a game or two in the playoffs OR we can sell off non-core assets to improve our chances on a REAL playoff run next year and the years thereafter.
Couldnt agree more.
Im surprised there arent more fans thinking this way. The odds are against the Rangers getting into the playoffs, and even if they do get there it will be the 8th spot and theyll have to face the Caps and their +70 goal differential.
