Not now, but eventually. You may not get a great player straight up for an up and coming goalie, but as part of a package its totally possible.

The Rangers do have a depth problem as far as goal and getting a successor to Henrik in place is not a bad idea for an iffy draft. Keeping in mind as well we're not talking a top ten pick--we're talking tail end of the first round. The main thing is the guy becomes a good NHL player not necessarily what his position is.

If both goalies plus Dansk are still on board trading down to a team with multiple second round picks might be another way to go. Montreal--for instance--takes the 28 and we pick up an extra 2nd rounder and pick up a goalie that way.

I say it before every draft - Sather has never traded down in the first round. Maybe that means he's due, but I don't see it. They have shown in the last few drafts that when they like someone they go after him.
