Rangers owner shares ridiculous reason he doesn't want to part with first round pick

There are a lot of reasons a team in the National Hockey League would want to hold onto their first round pick, most often they're used to hopefully draft key building blocks for the future and hopefully if they're lucky land the next big superstar in the draft, but Ibe never heard a reason like this before.

According to TSN on insider trading, the New York Rangers owner James Dolan doesn't want to part with the Rangers first round pick because the NHL draft is in Las Vegas; take a look.


Dolan doesn't want to trade 2024 1st round pick because the draft is at the The Sphere in Vegas which he owns and he wants to be part of the show.


Can't stop laughing.

Dolan doesn't want to part with the Rangers first round pick this year because he owns The Sphere in Las Vegas and wants to be a part of it.

First round picks are valuable, they always have been, but to outright have this be the reason is incredibly selfish. If you have an opportunity to make your team better and go on a run down the stretch into the playoffs, that's not something you pass up, especially when your job is to try and win and ice the most competitive team you can.

To me, this is an owner that cares more about appearances than actually trying to win the Stanley Cup.
