“As we approach the trade deadline later this month and into the summer, we will be focused on adding young, competitive players that combine speed, skill and character,” President Glen Sather and general manager Jeff Gorton wrote in an open letter to fans. “This may mean we lose some familiar faces, guys we all care about & respect.
