Lets analyze this deal with just age for a minute
You traded 4 players total, all young pieces all with good or decent potential
4 aging players who have reached their peak or close to it
and 2 young players with good potential
Now lets look at the Rangers deal:
Here you get a good defensemen in Girardi, a depth defensemen in Bickel, and a young player with crazy potential in Kreider..
I may not have made the Ranger trade when it was presented, it would depend on where I was at with that team, if I made that trade. But there is no way I would make the trade that was accepted with PHX, not even if it was just Ryan, but Sbisa too?
