you might as well move him for a midlevel pick or a younger player, when you're out of the playoffs you arent exactly dealing from a position of power. not trading him is only going to prolong his rangers stint because this is going nowhere next season as well, which means he still won't serve any good.

Face this team is gonna be in the basement for at least another season or two and by then Devries is 34ish.

i have to disagree de Vries is pretty important to keeping our defense respectable (ha - i mean the hope of keeping it respectable if we get a new coach) and i dont just want to play leetch and kasper with 4 young kids thats just asking for their careers to be ruined

besides if we are going to keep leetch and kasper keeping de Vries isnt going to hurt us at all
