I think I have to agree with anyone who's been mentioning Anson Carter. Both Craig Rivet and Carter are 29-years-old, so the age isn't a factor from either side. The Rangers have quite a few guys back on "D", including Joel Bouchard who should be receiving regular shift, but Rivet would probably crack their top six. If not, Sather could flip him to a certain Habs rival, one of which is severly lacking on the defence.

Carter makes 2.8 million, and has five points so far (4-1-5). Rivet makes 2.5 million, and also have five points (1-4-5). The stats don't tell the story though, because Carter is simply a struggling player. In that case, I think we would need to cover Carter's extra $300 000 worth of salary, and add a second round draft choice, along with a decent prospect.

I've always like Rivet, and I think he sometimes gets a bit of a hard knock around here, but with Quintal only being payed $450 000, and Komisarek and Hainsey needing quality minutes, Craig is the logical man to go.
