So unless they insult him with a lowball offer, I say odds favor --- not 100% certain, he could still get blown away with overpayment, but all things equal --- IMO Suter returns.

Weber has not said he just wants out, to anywhere; he supposedly wants to 'go home' -- thought to be NW pacific i.e., hometown Canucks, maybe Oilers.

Rangers (like any other team) willingness of add Weber for a Cup run as a rental has be be viewed as just that. So while I don't doubt SOMETHING could be worked out, even assuming it is the best offer, Rangers can not overpay so crazy it depletes and guts the team.

McDonagh is a top D in this league with a still higher ceiling. He is not being traded unless and uber-elite (Malkin, Stamkos) is involved.

Kreider is not going anywhere.
As a matter of theory, it would be stupid for the Rangers to trade him until we know what his top ceiling is. For this reason, unless an uber-elite is involved, he goes nowhere.

A more reasonable fit to the OP is :
to Preds: Gaborik
to Rangers: Weber (rental); rights to Radulov; 2012 1st
Besides the fact that we don't have a 1st that proposal is very very bad.
