I can't wait until the trade deadline has passed. People are throwing Powe into already bad trades, when he's generally a guy you add to your team for a playoff run, and specifically a great match for this team. Powe adds much needed forechecking, energy and PK. That's 3 things this team was lacking before the steal of a trade with the Wild.
And people want to trade for Dubinsky, an inconsistent schlub getting paid 4.2 million. You know who gets paid that kinda money? Milan Lucic. Dubinsky is not Looch. He's a third liner who flatlined. Yes, he can play C or LW. Gotta love that versatile inconsistency and lack of finish. He'll protect the puck well up ice, then fall down and turn it over once he gets to the dots. Let's make room for Dubinsky's 4.2 million by trading away Gaborik, the only recent high profile free agent who's been worth the money here.
But don't worry, Columbus might eat some of his salary. What could the Rangers possibly give up that would be worth convincing the CBJ to retain enough salary that it would be okay for the NYR to bring Dubinsky back? One way or the other, trading for Dubinsky is prohibitive.
