He says, the only option at this point would be for a trade to happen with the NY Rangers. I am somewhat tired of hearing abut Heatley and nothing happening, but if Sather can get Heatley, even if it means giving up Dubinsky, I say go for it. We could have a Stanley Cup team with 2 all-star 40-50 goal scorers in Heatley and Gaborik. [I bought a signed Gaborik NYR puck of ebay, really cool!]
The way the NY Rangers made it into the 2nd round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs 2 years ago and put up a really good fight in the first round last year, pushing the Capitals and Alexander Ovechkin to 7 games, with NO REAL SCORING [NOONE SCORED 30 GOALS] really says something about a team. Its truly impressive. I guess you could say you have Lundqvist and our young talented defense to credit for that mostly, but how much can they really carry a team?
Gaborik alone with have a huge impact on the team this year, providing he stays healthy which he should. Id still like to see Brashear the goon traded ASAP...worst move the offseason by Sather hands down. Although his other actions impressed me.
