In case you had any doubts left that the Rangers intend to among the busiest and most active teams at the looming trade deadline, you can safely bury them now.

The tl;dr version of this effectively confirms they intend to make multiple trades to rebuild for the future, including losing some “guys we all care about and respect”. This is clearly code speak that indirectly confirms many of the reports from the game’s insiders that even the likes of Ryan McDonagh, Mats Zuccarello, and/or J.T. Miller could soon be out the door.

We’ve written extensively in recent weeks suggesting that the Rangers should fully embrace this opportunity. This “message” is about as strong of one confirming a dedication to it that you’ll see shared from team management ahead of what stands to be a watershed moment for the franchise this February 26th.

Strap in, everyone! This promises to be one hell of a ride.
