Just to touch on one point. If Lucic had a great year with Krejci...How good would he have been with Richards and Gaborik? How much room would Richards and Gaborik have with Lucic playing the wall? Or how about Stepan down the road playing with Lucic?

It's an interesting proposal. I think Staal is the better player and carries more worth at this time. But this one truly isn't as lopsides as people are making it out to be.

Factor one more thing here.

Rangers are deep at defense
Rangers are relatively light on the Left Wall

Wonder is Boston has any interest in Kreider?
The Rangers losing Staal just about cripples our defense as is - he is the lynch pin
Boston takes this deal running, pairs staal with Chara, puts seguin in lucic's spot and runs away laughing.

It's INCREDIBLY lopsided.
