Does anyone here actually want either of them back?
It completely depends on the team's needs and the other players available when/if those two hit the market. Nobody burned any bridges after the trade, and management had very positive things to say about the guys being sent to Columbus (especially Dubi). I loved having both of them as Rangers, and if it were me, I'd sign them both the second they were available. That said--Sather and Torts (if that's who's in charge in two years' time when they hit the market) have a job to do, and they can't approach that job like fans. If Dubi or AA fit a need better than anyone else on the market, and the price makes sense, I have no doubt one or both of them could return. If not, I don't doubt that Sather/Torts will sign the guy they think is the better fit.
