That's going to cost more then $3.6 million + the cap space gained be including them in a trade (around $5.5 million). Plus the Rangers have to add another two dmen on top on that. May be Erixon can fill one of those holes of the three.
This is 100% correct. If MDZ is part of the trade how do you replace him? You would have to sign Carle for the 4-5 million a year he's going to get. Erixon cannot be relied on to replace MDZ's 20 minutes a game.
