********. We have trouble finding a successful player in the top 10 picks of the first round. You're gonna tell me we have a decent shot of finding that in 24-29?
And Stewart? He's supposed to be adequate replacement for Callahan? He'll want the same pay raise next year, 5.5-6 mill. So same problem with him too. With raises coming up for several of our players we'll be willing to give Stewart the raise when we aren't willing to give fan favorite Callahan that raise?
I don't see how moving one player is giving up the season. Whatever the Rangers are going to do, or not do, they will do so with or without Callahan. He is not a game-breaker on most nights.
