People here are excited that the team is performing decently and not just struggling to make the playoffs, but let's face it, we'll be underdogs even in the first round. If you are a betting man, you have to bet on the Rangers losing in the first round.
If I could Brayden Schenn and a second round pick for Gabby, I do it.
Schenn is a tremendous prospect who'll be good for us for years to come, hitting his prime when Gabby is retiring or barely playing.
Generationally, he fits with us much more than Gabby because he'll hit his prime about the same time as MDZ, Step, Kreider, Thomas, McIrath, Anisimov and even guys like Dubinsky and Callahan.
I definitely wouldn't mind Gabby for Schenn+#2.
