You make the best deal you can for your team.
And if Ranger friends/your friends actually give it some actual thought and proper analysis, they would realize that the best thing they can do when they get a 2nd rounder is to get it from their rivals who they are directly competing against, so they can weaken them in the future when the Rangers are better. Who do they want to be weaker once their rebuild is done, the Devils or the Dallas Stars?
its short sighted and frankly, what i hate about fans who care as much about who they hate as much as who they root for.
I get it too. But there is a reason why these teams have never made a trade.
