I dont see the need to diminish what a solid all-around player he has been for the Rangers just because of this situation. He is requesting far too much money and I think trading him is the right move.

...but Im not about to trash his legacy and how important hes been to this team just because of the contract squabble.
I think thats pretty spot on with where he is. I just dont understand why people assume we can get a 2/3rd liner for him with a top prospect and 1st round pick to boot. If you can trade a pending UFA average second liner and maybe a little more for 1 1/2 years of a legitimate 1st line RW I dont see why you dont do that.
