Mcdonagh for Datsyuk straight up.

Nash - Datsyuk - Gaborik
Kreider - Richards - Stephan

If Rangers are willing to risk it and try for a cup within two years, that's quite easily the best top line and top 6 in the NHL.
Really? Value is nowhere close.

Being 34 doesnt make Datsyuk a useless vet. Datsyuk is one of the most complete players in the NHL, probably only behind Crosby and maybe Stamkos. Even at 34 he still produces, just shy of a PPG player last season. Arguably the best hands in the league, and has some of the best offensive vision. He has the unique ability to conrtrol the game on any part of the ice and has incredable hockey IQ, a dream to any team . Until his number decline I dont see Detroit trading him.

If however they were to deal him for a rebuild, Mcdonagh alone would probably not do it. Id look for: Mcdonagh + B Prospect + High pick at minimum.
