1.5/5 is good, right?...
The problem is you have 40 posters each posting 5 different roster scenarios which involve a lot of moves altogether. But in reality, that is what the Rangers staff is sitting in a room and doing now, and have been for the past couple weeks and even before. They're going through all the available players, going through different scenarios, different guys have different views, and they're trying to nail down their primary, secondary and tertiary targets and developing a plan of attack. And if their primary target doesn't happen, they go down list, put in plan B, C, D, and so on. And overpaying Poo, Boyle, Stralman, if that's what needs to be done, may be in the cards if they first, can't get them for less and second, can't replace them. Well, hopefully they're working hard figuring it out. Guess I should have said this is what they should be doing. And we will all complain at the final result, not really knowing all the details and realities that they just couldn't get everyone.
