Where does Sanguinetti and Del Zotto fit in in a year or two.

One of Rozsival and Orpik yes. Mara, OK.

Campbell? Too expensive. How many years? A little overrated.

Malone? Not bad. How many years? Dollar amount?

Not sure about all of this.
Del Zotto NEEDS to play 2 more years in junior....Probably 2 more years after that in Hartford...After that he still might not be ready...Do you expect him to just jump to the NHL within the next 2 years?

Sanguinetti is far from a finished product. If anything the expectations for him need to be dropped ALOT...He needs to learn the pro game on defense as well as offense next season. Offensive moves he did in junior are not going to translate in Hartford next season....Sanguinetti has the talent and smarts to be a real good defenseman in the league but rushing him is not going to help him....

The Rangers are not going to be passive with obvious needs at the NHL level because they have talent in the pipeline. If one of these kids takes a spot from a vet in the future the Rangers will move the vet...If the vet can't be moved they can waive him (ala Kaspar)
