Without Cally, the Rangers are still in playoff contention. Girardi, on the other hand, would be problematic if traded. They need, at least, a stable third pairing Dman coming back in a trade somewhere.
But this only effects them this season. The Rangers aren't contending this year, so who cares how far they go in the first round?
May as well set something up for the future.
Because that's not how the Rangers operate and you and I both know that. If the Rangers were in say, the Islanders position where we were last in the division, and it still wasn't looking good, then yeah, I'd say there's a chance they get traded. But, at 6th in the conference, 2nd in the division, a strong possibility of getting a wild card at worst, and the team playing MUCH better as of late, there's no way that those two are being traded.
I know the Rangers aren't favorites to go to the Stanley Cup or even win it. I don't think their chances are very good, but I believe that it's possible with a bit of luck. After seeing how this franchise has been run over the past decade, I know this is most likely how they see it too.
