The Rangers aren't going to be out of a playoff spot by the deadline because all of the teams are mediocre and there is a 3 week Olympic break. There aren't enough games to fall out. Even if the Rangers trade a player or two or three,will they really be out of the race? In this conference? You can't say we're 2nd in our division today so we have to keep everyone. Next week,the team will be 4th in the division but a point or two out of 3rd in the division and the 2nd WC. Does the philosophy change? Don't use the standings as an excuse not to make the proper decisions. Don't tell me next year is next year because next year comes on March 6.
Not that my opinion means much, but I feel they should trade who they can trade. This team is not a cup contender at the moment so I'm not going to be livid if they miss the playoffs. I will be livid if the organization gets stuck with Callahan/Girardi for 6/5 million a pop.
