To NYR: Tyutin, Nikitin, MacKenzie, Letestu
To CBJ: Del Zotto, Rupp, Thomas/2nd
New York imports a 2nd pairing that has great chemistry and no longer has any weakness on D with McDonaugh-Girardi/Tyutin-Nikitin/Staal-Stralman. Each of these pairings can play 20+ min assuming Stralman builds on his last season. Also NYR improves its bottom 6, which looks a bit suspect (at least to me). Rupp goes the other way for salary, perhaps CBJ withholds some salary to make it work. The upgrades could be enough to push the Rangers over the top.
Columbus clears roster spots for its youth movement and gets a defenseman with high potential.
