The only one who might be anyhow close, at least dimensionally, and also skating wise and demeanor wise is the guy shown on my avatar. If Torts think he can make another Richards clone out of him, if he really thinks there is such potential, I will root for Torts. But I don't think Arty will survive Sather's desire to recover from his mistakes since AA is the most valuable asset he's got.
But if Sather stays true to recent form and does decide to make a trade for say a scoring winger, I see him dealing Boyle + instead of AA.

Maybe I am overly optimistic but I think Sather knows he is on thin ice with Rangers fans in regards to trading homegrown kids.

AA may be moved as a last resort but only for a high end winger. Think overpayment from the other team. Sather really is a good trader.
