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.
I hear what you're saying. I would hate to lose anyone on our team w/o getting sometime of compensation back. Especially guys that will eventually play in this league.

You need capable guys in your farm system though. The 4th or 5th rounder we'll be getting in return will probably be less valuable than having those guys in our system, even if it's just for another year.

Not too sure you're going to find many trade-partners for guys like Sauer and Byers anyway. Sauer has to prove he can stay healthy, and Byers isn't anything more than a future 4th liner. Most teams have guys like this in their system.
