Rangers can wait the year for Kreider for the 15 goals MPS would contribute.

And can sign Prospal for the immediate production.

The answer isn't trading a young defenseman that comes cheap and proves to be incredibly solid, and showed signs he could be a two way defenseman.

McDonagh's value>>>MPS.

I know people love goals, but preventing them is equally as important. And you can't just replace a legitimate top four defenseman. None of our defense prospects are anywhere close to what McDonagh provided at the NHL level.

If anything, you trade the defense prospects/Del Zotto for the forward.

Do not break up the core of defensemen. They're going to be one of the main reasons for any of this team's successes.
