Very good point and what I'm trying to get at. I never stated the rangers did not make a mistake. Everyone knows they did. But what's different from burying a guy in the minors as opposed to trading him to another NHL club? It happens all the time. You trade guys that did not pan out. Redden still gets to play hockey AND paid to do it. We got lucky with the Gomez trade, but did you really enjoy watching him underperform so severely? Drury too? I mean c'mon don't be so righteous about this.
