It's understood that we'd have to give up prime assets for that winger, and that is something that no one on here wants to do.

It's a giant conflict of interest here.

Do we trade for Gaborik or Kovalchuk? Who is available that could help the Rangers? Make a trade for a guy like Afinogenov, who won't cost as much? Bring in Rolston, who most seem to be against? Malone is overrated, and will likely not live up to his contract.

On the other hand, the logjam at center would be overwhelming. Drury has to move to wing then, and if Dubinsky is to play center, where do we put him, 3rd line? Is that going to hamper his development? If they could trade Drury, I'd say do it, but that's a terrible contract - which I've said from day one - and I can't think of a team that would take it off of our hands.
