It makes no sense. Is Ryan Clowe (who isn't a bad hockey player by any means) going to make a difference that's worth THREE draft picks?
No and the fans that love the trade will be the same ones on draft day complaining we don't have a 1st or 2nd round pick.
Unless the Rangers can recoup the picks (doubtful) this is a move that makes very little sense...for an 8th place clue....that can easily miss the playoffs.......
A part of Slats' thinking has to be for right here and right now. Slats must have some sort of an idea as to what Clowe is looking for in his next contract. This isn't a typical 8th place team even though we've played as inconsistently as one.
