I think MZA will be the wild card here. If he never returns to the NHL irl, then sure it was a wasted effort.

But I think he can contribute long-term to my make-believe Hurricanes.

Oh, and here's a list of recent notable 4th rounders:

Marcus Foligno
Braden Holtby
Alec Martinez
James Reimer
Keith Yandle
Ryan Callahan

Just to name a few. Who KNOWS what goldmine lies in that mystery pick!
I don't think the trade was off by a lot if at all. Staal gets no love because of how steady he is defensively and he is on a great contract.

On a side note the Rangers are very excited to add a dynamic offensive dynamo like Skinner at such a young age. We feel Torts will toughen him up and expect big things playing with the likes of Richards, Gaborik and Nash. We expect him to get to at least a ppg this season.

We are also VERY excited to add Justin Faulk who we see as the perfect partner for Ryan McDonagh for the long term. His addition also allows for Girardi to play with MDZ like they have in the past. They compliment each other VERY well.
