Spector's Note: The Blueshirts must also be careful not to fall into the old methods of peddling too much young talent for veterans, which is what happened far too often over the past 15 years. Tony Amonte, Doug Weight, Sergei Zubov, Alexei Kovalev, Mattias Norstrom, Todd Marchant, Kim Johnsson, Aaron Miller, Marc Savard, Mike York and Marek Zidlicky were all dealt away, and while some of the returns brought short term fixes it can be argued that over the long run the Rangers would've been a better team if they'd retained most of these player.
...I couldn't agree more. Like I 've been saying, if these prospects are so good, why do we want to trade them?
...just looking at some of those players is enough to make you sick. Although I'm not sure what Kim Johnsson's name is doing on the list.
