Maybe pay off for a year or two of the contract, and then trade him. If you take off a year or two, its not that bad of a contract. That contract would be tradable, and I think the Rangers could get a good return for Hank.
Rangers will not trade him and cannot in the foreseeable future. It's an awful contract from a Cap/Team perspective but it's not from a business/marketing perspective. Hank in the last few years have brought in a lot of money to MSG and they market him as the face of the Rangers. They even created the crown 30 logo just for him. They probably sold more #30 jerseys than anyone else on the team.

Talbot cannot be the official starter. You just can't have that given what Hank has done for so long and how much he is making. What Slats should've done was waited. But i think Dolan and the marketing people pushed it.

Unless Talbot wins the Cup for us, Hank will always be the #1 here for the foreseeable future. I just hope it doesn't become the Luongo of the East.
