Patience is a virtue. The Rangers patience about trading assets like Alexander Georgiev, Chris Kreider, and Lias Andersson should not be taken as an unwillingness to make a move. Yet, that seems to be the takeaway from some top hockey insiders like Elliotte Friedman and Pierre LeBrun. Both of them have either on TV, radio, or print have discussed the Rangers at the deadline with a giant “IF”.
If they are still in the playoff hunt, if they want to trade Georgiev, if they want to trade Kreider so on and so forth. I mean, what do you expect Jeff Gorton to say?
