Make Excuses/Bank On The Status Quo
Remember two years ago when the Chicago Blackhawks were making move after move throughout the off season while the rest of us sat around and wondered where all of that cap space was coming from?
That needs to be the New York Rangers this summer.
But all too often we have seen either Jeff Gorton or Glen Sather before him, sit around and do, well, nothing.
By doing nothin Gorton will basically be communicating that injuries (or some other lame excuse) are the reason(s) for his players’ poor performances the year prior.
Take Dan Girardi for example.
If the Rangers’ allow themselves to fall into the “Girardi didn’t play well because he had a cracked knee cap” trap, then it will be time to start running for the hills ladies and gentlemen.
Taking no action and staying with the status quo will simply not finish the job.
Hopefully the Yandle trade is a small glimpse into the future and not just a one time fluke.
