You cannot trade a to-4 defenseman until you have another top-4 defenseman ready to step in and play. Erixon has not shown that he is ready for such a role. Schultz is not even a Ranger. Weakening your strength is not the way to go.

Offensively, the Rangers will improve organically. The kids will learn more and develop more. Thrusting away 21 year old defensemen that have been playing top-4 minutes on a team that went to the Eastern Conference Finals seems short sighted. Not all that long ago, we witnessed former young Rangers blossoming on other teams. Are we really ready to relive all that?
