Pretty sure Boomer is full of it, but whatever. At least it's entertaining.

Everytime we get a scorer....

and they put on the Ranger uniform, it's like the jersey is made of kryptonite. You know what I mean.....

Well its obvious this is going on because St. Louis requested a trade, like has been reported. Yzerman is doing so, bc St. Louis was/is demanding one. If St. Louis reconsiders and changes his mind, its off. If not, its all about how hard/far St. Louis pushes it, and if he pulls an Iginla and says Rangers only.

The other end that is more interesting, is, is Yzerman actually considering giving Callahan what he wants in terms of contract demands?

Only way this one happens is if the player MSL truly asked to come here. If not, makes no sense for them to trade for a rental. Pick the other way sweetens things, however for the Rangers they can't afford to give a first away. 2 firsts in as many years...Not good! God I hope they aren't tossing a top prospect in the mix either. Scared for Duclair right now.

People aren't looking at this from the right angle. Why does this trade need to make sense in reality for Boomer? He has a source he is close with, and he very clearly stated he trusts that source. Why would he argue with his source, or doubt them, when he has trusted them so much previously?

To make the analogy, if you had a close friend who at times came to you with insider information, and that information was usually correct. Would you argue with your close friend and tell them it's crazy and can't be true, or would you trust them even though it doesn't make any sense from your perspective?

We as fans on a message board cannot take our perspective and bias, then apply that to what people who are connected have to say. They more likely than not know things that we don't. With that being said even I am still skeptical, however I fully understand why Boomer is not.

Completely agreed. Classic shortsighted, big splash, but poorly thought out Ranger move. Reeks of the bad old days - and it'll be made much, much worse if we're then adding additional assets.

Do the hard work and show patience. Draft well. Make smaller, longer term deals - several of them if need be - until you can get real foundational building blocks.

No he very clearly said before declaring the rumor that, "It has nothing to do with Marty Broduer, it has nothing to do with St. Louis (pronounced like the city) but it does have something to do with St. Louis (pronounced like the name).

Then he follows that up by saying it is a 1 for 1, MSL for Cally, unmistakeably.

It really does make me wonder. Sa hypothetically this deal is actually being talked about. Does it kill the chances of it getting done? It would sure make me think twice if a deal I'm mulling is being publicly discussed before it can be agreed upon.

Essentially tied for 3rd in the conference.

Better rebuild!

Unless the MSG PR people are cool with it, totally. There must have been a moment when Boomer and his source talked where they were like, I can't do this again. I went too far.

I've also thought about whether all this leaking and it becoming a story, effects St. Louis and everything he is hearing, calls, texts, tweets, and if he is upset about it.

Pretty much this.. zucc has replaced Callahan as the 2nd RW. We could move nash back to LW if we somehow pulled this off

Hank has nothing to do with it. The Rangers are always in win now mode. In a year and a half, MSL's contract will be up and he will be 40. What then?

Conversely, have you ever played the game telephone as a kid? When a message goes through various channels it tends to get distorted.

I don't think boomer is full of it, but I do think he's playing awfully fast and loose with the info he got

A GM would never not do a trade to spite someone leaking it.

However, with the unusual circumstance of his own reputation being on the line, not making the move could kill two birds with one stone.

Basically it boils down to whether or not MSL is still requesting a trade, and whether or not he specifically said, "Rangers only." Otherwise SY would be shopping him for the best deal which would definitely not be a rental Cally.
