In the case of Girardi, I can see your point. But, I personally feel it will all fall towards they can get him at a discount or not.

Not to mention, I can say with absolute confidence that the Rangers have about 0.0 chance of winning a Stanley Cup this year.
Guess you're not really much of a Blueshirt Believer Sorry for the stupid pun lol.

But seriously, I'm not saying I disagree with what you're saying, I just don't believe the Rangers will trade these guys and be sellers at the deadline with the position they're currently in and most likely will be in for the remainder of the season.

And I wouldn't say trading Callahan makes us a playoff team either. Trading someone of his caliber could be detrimental to the team. While he may not be putting up the best season statistically he does a lot of other things like playing good defense, penalty killing, PP time, etc. He's a very solid overall player. The person we'd have to call up in his place would be JT Miller who lets face it, isn't on Callahan's level or else he'd be playing in the NHL regularly. Teams need gritty, hard nosed players like Callahan and I think this team took a step back when we traded Dubinsky. The team very well could take a huge step backwards by trading their Captain.
