I don't understand

why you have such a problem with brooks writing about a possible trade for Jagr? I'm not saying I want it to happen - I don't - but obviously his sources (and as a NY sportswriter on the scene for many years, he has developed many legitimate ones) tell him there has been serious discussions between the two clubs, and where ther's smoke there sometimes is fire. It may never happen; only a few trade proposals end up happening, but reporting it doesn't make him bad in my eyes; its his duty to report it. It would be a truly major news item if it actually happens, which would define the team for years. It deserves frequent updates, and the speculation is what being interested in the Rangers is all about. I detest Sather, but I don't mind Brooks pointing out how clueless he truly is about what this team needs.
