Brooks poses the question well.
Would the assets the Rangers got back for trading Girardi be worth what it would take to fill his position? Stralman is another right D UFA--should we sign or trade him by the deadline?
IMO Stralman is good enough as the 2nd pairing guy. I don't really think he's cut out to be a 1st pairing guy. Rangers move Girardi and that will be a specific need and there might be a huge contract going to some UFA replacement.
Somewhat the same scenario for Callahan but I don't see him bringing back as much.
We do nothing we might lose both through inertia in July.
Basically it comes down to sign or trade.
Brooks at least has the compensation package about right. Girardi should bring back multiple top level prospects/young players/draft picks. He's a guy that most likely goes to legit contending teams--a guy those teams will look to to put them over the top. Both Girardi and Callahan if moved will have a very good chance to win a Stanley Cup.
