It does make sense that Rangers can strike a deal with Carolina if lets say Jeff Skinner was part of the deal. Rangers are looking for offense, Jeff Skinner is just about a perfect fit for the Rangers.
He can hop on to a line with Brad Richards and Marion Gaborik. Would be one of the lethalest lines in the game today.
While Hurricanes having three Staal brothers, would be scary in itself.
Truth is, I'm all talk here and I have no idea if Jeff Skinner is untouchable. But yet, it seems okay for Sather to pick up the phone and ask Rutherfod if he's interested in a Staal- Skinner deal. What about Dubinsky and Marc Staal for Jeff Skinner type trade? Seems about fair to ask, maybe Rangers add in a prospect?
Rangers would then have money to try to sign Ryan Suter to replace Marc Staal. If not, next year they'd have room to go after Shea Weber if he becomes a free agent.
Is this possible?
No it is not possible.
Carolina is not trading Skinner.
