Brad Richards + Girardi + Stepan + Eminger + Biron

Hall/RNH a better F for a great C in Richards
Girardi better than J. Schultz, especially on defense, but JS potential acknowledged
Stepan = 2C >> than highly rated Ds
Eminger for balance, provides Oilers w. a D for now

Even if RNH (not Hall), w 2 centers coming back, more depth at pivot for EDM
Girardi is huge improvement to D. Not what JS offers on offense, but Oilers have enough firepower.
Biron gives enough G in shortened season to make a difference this year
Oilers give up two prospect Ds, but still have at least 2 good D prospects not far away.

Rangers upgrade one F,
temporary step backwards on D, except that JSchultz helps on PP,
survive loss of Stepan by promoting JT Miller, who is faster, and a better fit with Hagelin, Kreider, Callahan...
would have to juggle in pivot if that is Hall, not RNH, but ya gotta do the upgrade, and this package helps with creating cap space

Would consider Cam Talbot as immediate backup G.
Bern...while I respect your opinions you should stop with your multiple piece deals. Basically you'd want Hall (1st line LW) + J schultz (best D prospect and only true Offensive D we have) plus 2 of our top 3 D prospects for Richards(~6.7 Mil cap hit for a #2 C behind RNH) + Stepan (another #2 C buta good player) + Girardi (responsible D but not a number 1 and not a replacement for our loss of Schultz's offense) + filler in Eminger and Biron.

The Oilers lose this deal hard. We'd have no future D depth and wouldn't be filling any major holes for the size of the package we're giving up. If Edmonton trades one of the big players with NYR it'll be for a number 1 D not 2 number 2 C and pieces we don't need desperately.
