The Rangers might attempt to keep Bickel but they won't get into a bidding war for him

The Rangers will likely attempt to keep Mitchell for depth

The Rangers may or may not give Zucca a QO. He wrote Zucca will sign in Europe regardless if he is given or not given a QO
So, Brooks isn't suggesting anything too over-the-top in terms of roster moves. Pursuing big tickets in the off-season is unlikely to Brooks, which would correspond to the Gorton interview with Cerny. I think the more imaginative posters here are going to be disappointed with this off-season. Again, get Schultz and RW who can play next to Stepan and Kreider, and I'm good to go with this squad.
