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.

What team in the league would win the cup every year but has no goalie, and has the cap room for him?

I'm pretty sure this question has been asked a couple of times before, but what would a team have to give in return in order to get him?

Would play goalie Cam Talbot?

Exactly why we should trade him. That last place is where the rangers deserve to be, and it will force changes. Being selfish about lundqvist isnt the answer here, he has given enough.

Trade Henke and with the #1 pick in three years they'll take Hugh Jessiman's baby brother ...

Would need a goalie draft Al Montoya's brother or son

This suggestion is not worth considering.

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?

Exactly why there is no reason to trade him.

There is no guarantee he wins a cup anywhere else.

Trade scenarios belong in the offseason thread.
