Yeah, but this isn't just the team. Hank has been terrible so far this year. How can anyone possibly claim that Hank hasn't been a huge part of the problem?

Your second sentence is why I am fine with trading Hank. Teams don't need superstar goalies to win. They need stacked teams. If you have the superstar goalie WITH the stacked team than it's just gravy.
