The guy was still not worth that kind of money EVEN with those 97 games for his overall game. Imagine when he started to "slow down". Rangers, while not necessarily a model of great decisions, wanted to get rid of him to make room for who exactly as their top 2 C's? They wanted to get rid of him despite his stats. We decided to get rid of Koivu to make room for Gomez. And get rid of, at the time, one of the 2 best prospect on D. Made no sense then, makes no sense now, will make even less sense in the future.
