Instead, they could trade down a few spots, get a package of talent to improve their depth, plus, still add a quality player. And, supposedly McLean was interested in acquiring Umberger at the deadline. Add in that they have Nash, Klesla and Zherdev that at some point could be looking to make big money, so getting another future big money player might put a strain on their finances. Any thoughts?
The greatest chance for the Rangers to get O at the deadline is for Pittsburgh to get the pick (unless they get it themselves). It is strictly a financial decision.
