Nashville can shop him to every team in the NHL but if doesn't want to play there,Poile is wasting his time making the calls. He is two years away from group III. They will get nothing for him if he bolts. Why wouldn't he bolt? He bolted on them once already.
IMO--you're one of the smartest posters here RB but this guy has too many issues for my blood. He might be fine here but until now he has shown himself very much to be a mercenary and if he doesn't hit it off with Torts this is going to go down a very nasty stretch of road. If he doesn't cost very much in assets going the other way--then by all means but I wouldn't be handing him a long term and expensive contract right away. If he wants to play for the Rangers he'll need to prove he's ready to how the team plays which is something that Gaborik has done.
