Who couldn't score and whos defense wore out because it couldn't carry a team anymore that couldn't score some goals. I don't care how you look at it, the Rangers couldn't score in the playoffs and that's why we lost. Now with Gabby out for the first month or so at least...I'm just saying, if we don't do anything to those top 6 (especially for a 25 year old Ryan... he's still developing by the way) then the season will start without Gabs and we're going to have big problems.
Okay. but you don't trade MDZ and Stepan for Ryan. Since we both agree MDZ is better than Ryan right now, why do we throw in our promising center for him?
MDZ for Ryan and Emerson Etem.
That's the only way I make the trade.
You'll find however that MDZ was vital to the success of this team and finding a guy as good as him on the point will be hard. Players like Zubov (MDZ) are a dime a dozen and don't come around too often.
