If we love him, we'll let him go; Time to trade Lundqvist
He has been dragging this team to the playoffs year after year, keeping them alive during times when they clearly didnt deserve to be kept alive. If you ask me, its doing nobody any good, cause it keeps rangers from a disaster season that would truly open their eyes to all the shortcomings and force changes, and its a waste of lundqvists talents. We have taken enough from him without giving anything back, he should be on a team that will get him a cup.
Yep. The idea that all great players deserve to win is nonsense. Plenty dont.
What they all deserve is to play for a team that respects them, pays them for their services, and tries to win. Thats it
Which is every team in the NHL. Lundqvist would get no less play time, competitiveness, respect or money in any other NHL team. The difference is that those teams would actually be worthy of his talent. I think this selfishness is really unbecoming, just being willing to drain a player completely for a bad team to be even remotely good, even though everybody knows he is meant for something better.
I love Lundqvist, but the notion that hes worth 8-10 spots in the standings is hyperbole. Trade him and then what? The team is good enough to finish 8-10th in the standings and thats worse. Do we trade Nash, Stepan, and McDonagh too?
