We need to deal away Sauer while he still has some value. A lesser team maybe willing to give up a mid/late-round pick for a young defenseman who can play on their bottom pairing. There is no reason keeping him in the minors. He can play in the NHL (at least one some teams), but will never make the Rangers. Let him go for whatever you can get for him, just to allow him to have an NHL career.
Same for Byers. He should be shipped for whatever we can get, even future considerations. He's never making the Rangers. Honestly, his best hope is to become a journeyman who is a bottom team's 13th forward.
Either way, whether another team can give him or a spot or not, I don't think we should keep him in Hartford. He has no future with the Rangers and he'll be taking away ice time from someone in the Whale (the name Whale=barf).
