He's not a bad piece, he's not a player that you should dump just to dump. But is he worth his QO? What is his trade value? No issue exploring either of those.
I have no issue exploring his trade options, and as an arbitration eligible RFA, much like Del Zotto, they are going to have to make the choice on what to do with him.

All in all though if it were up to me I'd treat them both just as I would the UFAs, offer them a pre-deadline contracts where they are leaving money on the table where the Rangers are legitimately getting a good deal without totally undercutting them either, if they sign it great, if not sell them.

That leaves them as movable assets if they sign, instead of having a bunch of guys with no trade clauses as well as being on contracts no other team would want anyway.
