this team doesn't need big blockbuster trades. it has too many holes.
trade gilroy/sanguinetti for wheeler, call up grachev, minimize big time free agent signings. trade rosival if possible, move redden to the ahl if not, sign hamhuis if philly can't extend him... sign michalek if not... if both are gone allow ranger prospects to fill those vacant holes until next season's free agency period or until the deadline.
the way i see it we have grachev, stepan, kreider, and whoever else we select at 10th overall this year, whether it be nino or tarasenko, as our future. with the money we'll save after rosi's and drury's contracts expire and with redden being buried in the ahl we'll be able to not only develop our prospects but also have enough money to sign anyone we want in 2 years.
giving up our future for spezza is not worth it. sather doesn't have an idea of how to have a long lasting successful team. it comes from within the organization first then goes to trades and free agency to fill in the few remaining holes. look how chicago did it, look at the kings, look at washington, look at pitt. if the rangers keep spending big money on these types of players all they'll ever be is a 1st or 2nd round play off team at best.
What exactly is wrong with Spezza's attitude?
People jump to such crazy conclusions on this board whenever a player's name is thrown around in trade rumors.
and FYI Spezza just turned 27. It's not exactly "giving up the future" when the player you're getting in return is a huge part of the future.
The only reason I don't see us getting Spezza is we just can't afford to give up a package deal that would actually yield a return like Spezza. We don't have the kind of depth within the organization that's required.
