What myth there's no room, Kaberle is on the wrong side of 30 is declining, soft, if Sather signs him he will not have learned from past failures.
The myth is that anybody over 30 is bad and youngsters must be good...Look, I love the young defensive depth the Rangers have, but after the top 4 there may not be any D-man ready for Full time NHL competion RIGHT NOW, no matter what the organization "said"..More then likely Erixon, Vtank and other need more time in the AHL (I know Del Zotto sure as heck does)...Maybe not, but the Rangers can't count on that yet...It would be foolish......So really, as far as D-man ready to play consistently in the NHL, we don't have near enough right now....and why one or maybe two vet D-men (young or old) would be the right addition
