1 Top 4 D-Man - Kubina (Torts), Volchenkov, Hamhuis, Michalek, Boychuk...

So my guess barring any trades and the future upcoming on the left side in Kreider and Grachev, plus another center in Stepan..I'm thinking Volchenkov is landing in New York he is exactly what we need. Over 5 million thats an over payment even 5 is stretching it 4.25-4.75 I could live with. In regards to how he handles the rest I'm torn.

I would love Kovy here but I think he needs a Zetterberg/Hossa type deal to do it with a similar cap hit.

What players out of this list do you guys think he targets, did I miss any, and what players for these needs are available via trade?

On the lists of Rangers needs, a purely defensive defenseman is right above starting goalie and behind just about every single other possible need.

Our defense is adequate, our offense is pathetic. Investing $4m+ (probably $5m) in Volchenkov would be pure stupidity given our "needs."
