I was 25 and completely understand how important it was.

Doesn't make the deals any better.

I agree that we needed the cup. BUT I believe we win the cup easier had we kept Amonte (the Weight deal was done a year before at a failed attempt to make the PO's)

Been watcting hockey since the 70's. Big Rangers fan, just never been a fan with how they have treated young players until the last few years.
