Completely understand what you're saying and would agree -
he was nearly as good on the right side as he is on the left.
Unfortunately, he's not. So, the team is stuck with three guys all worthy of 25 minutes a night on the left, but only 60 minutes to divide up. He's worth more to others than he is to the Rangers. So, while I wouldn't give him away for nothing, I'd certainly be interested in the same value (or more) in an area where the team isn't quite so deep.
