A team looking to contend in 2-3 years cannot let him walk. He is heart - soul - talent. I see Rangers and I see Lundqvist, Staal, Dubinsky, Callahan - these are the guys you keep together.

.. and a few posters keep saying better talent is coming. I'm excited for Kreider, Thomas etc.. but they haven't performed at this level. I need to see it first. Thomas may be St Louis or Chad Kolarik - these guys can't impact our moves on the players we already have who are the identity of the team.
