Not to get me wrong. I like Sean and hope he catches on with some other team if that's what he decides to do--and then hope he wouldn't come back and haunt us. I think he is still a legit NHL player. He just doesn't add enough to be one of our top 12 forwards and his contract is too high for his value--which is one of the major reasons other teams might be staying away.

Life goes on. He's more or less outlived his usefulness here--keeping in mind the Rangers are at least at this point in time one of the top teams in the league and it ain't easy keeping a spot on the team especially with such a demanding coach.

He did bring some pizzazz to the team--and at least pre-Tortorella era the Rangers needed that. His personality on and off the ice is apparently not for everyone but I think for the most part he was more than loyal enough to his teammates (witness his fight with Carcillo after the Gaborik hit) and he loves the city as well.
