Still really do not think there is a reasonable D option worth moving significant pieces for, especially when the Rangers prospect pool's greatest strength is their depth at D.

However if anyone could find one, I am sure it would be Slats.

The problem I see is if Erixon, and DZ keep improving, Eminger and Woywitka are the odd men out when Staal and Sauer return. One of them becoming the 7th. If they make a move for another solid D, they're going to have to demote one of DZ/Erixon to make room for that person on the roster once Staal gets back finally. They're not going to make one of the kids a 7th d-man, for developmental reasons, and if they are playing well, why send them down just to bring in more D as a temporary fill-in?

I'm all for making the d-core as strong as humanly possible, but I don't think the trade is necessary at the moment.
