Girardi (responsible D but not a number 1
and not a replacement for our loss of Schultz's offense) + filler in Eminger and
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.
Ranger + Oiler fans do not see eye to eye.
A) J Schultz is a rare offensive D, not many teams have one. And you have more than enough firepower, even giving up one of Hall/RNH, to get by without a possible Wayne Coffey in the making.... but that's not what he is now.
B) Girardi is a #1 on a lot of teams, and a truly defensive defenseman.
He's not in a class with Weber, Chara, Doughty, but he is a legit all star and helps with a lot of shots
Girardi + Staal are overly discounted, in the hopes we will offer McDonagh, which we won't and even then, the return is not RNH, but something less.
C) Biron is actually valuable to you this year!
D) You would still have 1 of those 3 left over, and I understand from prior posts you have at least another 2 good guys in the pipeline (forgot their names).
