We need to not do this. I am not convinced we need Brad. Not because of his skill, but because of his age. The Rangers won't win the Cup the next couple of years, and who knows if Brad will still be an elite center in a few years. Meanwhile, MDZ is the only offensive blueliner in the system.
I remember everyone hated Zubov after the 1995 playoffs when he played poor defense, so we traded him for Robitaille. How did that work out?
I am also opposed to wasting pucks on McCabe and Antropov. Who knows what those picks would become.
Look, Horak was a 6th rounder and I would take a prospect like him over any rental.
What's tough is the Ranger's draft better in the later rounds then in the first.
