Addition by subtraction.
Take vitrual nothing and get cap space.
Yogan is doing OK. I know he lost almost all of last year due to injury, but even if you take that out, he is a big guy in his 4th year in the OHL scoring at or near PPG for three years now showing no major improvement. That's OK, but nothing to write home about either.

I know MZA probably will never have a spot on the Rangers, and maybe he won't ever really get another shot in the NHL. But he has shown over 45 games in the NHL that he does ok there (scoring at 0.5 PPG) and he is lighting up the AHL.

At the point where we are right now with the additions to the prospect list, I think MZA is far and away the best left. He is easily forgotten because of his status with this team, but that shouldn't influence judgement of him as a prospect too much.
