Don't think Ranger fans would even say that. The guy was lights out last year but as the OP mentioned, consistency isn't there yet.

I expect MDZ to sign for $3-$3.5 million on a short term deal. Rangers won't trade him because of said consistency problems. No-one knows how good he can be yet so his value will not be that high. They'll hang on to him for another 2 years and see how he does.
New York Rangers are legit contenders, they have no point in trading an important d-man unless they become a better hockey team. No point in trading for a downgrade, common sense.

That, and Schultz right now is a great AHL d-man, where Del Zotto is a great NHL D-man. Could easily make the case Rangers need MDZ more than another elite winger, as well.
