Well, I personally love disagreeing with anyone who thinks the Rangers need another old man. :p
Young talent is always going to have a rough start. Kids need their crash course sometime. Why did Nils Ekman demand a trade? Because he knew he'd never get a chance to play with the Rangers. Dominic Moore, Chad Wiseman, Fedor Tjutin, and soon, Hugh Jessiman are going to find this out.
Youth brings energy. If Slats had half a brain, which he doesn't, he'd keep Messier where he belongs at 4th line center and put Moore somewhere higher on the depth chart.
