Solid stuff and all good points. Hopefully the organization decides to see where the youngsters are at a quarter way through the season. The trade deadline will certainly yield a more favorable trade market.
That was the point of my article. IF the young players breakout. Rangers have been climbing in their point totals from 87-93-109 year after year. They are getting better. Even if the Penguins are worse defensively, they have enough talent to make it to playoffs by rolling over inferior teams (and winning shootouts of course, same with Devils). Their defense/goaltending was exploited by another offensive-minded team, same could be said of our team in the postseason. Missing out on a serviceable defenseman this offseason is going to put another full workload on Timonen and the same thing in the second round is going to happen the past two seasons. Out hustled in our own end.
Always confuses me why people think that the Flyers are capable of signing everyone of the FA market. Doan isn't coming to the Flyers, neither is Arnott to play the 4th line center on a cheap deal.
