Or they could miss out entirely and potentially have all those UFAs walk. Risk meet risk. Sure, they do have some prospects but they're not exactly flush organizationally (hello Keith Aucoin!).
It's asset management. While they're not likely to sell off entirely, they would stupid at this point not to at least listen to what teams would offer. Without 19 this team is mediocre at best. If McPhee's place is secure then he should be looking to shake this team up at the deadline and better position the team for the long-term. Wideman is probably their most realistic valuable trade chip. If the Rangers offer the most up and it's too good to refuse then so be it.
