I'm thinking spare D is more important than spare forwards. 6 vs. 12. You can always run with three lines if you have to (though, it's not a long term solution). If two D go down that's a lot worse than two F.
The NYR should've been aware that Kreider wasn't/isn't ready despite how well he did last year in the playoffs. Anyone that watched him in Hartford could've told you that. There's still some quality forwards out there (Arnott, Moore) that can be had without a trade deadline maneuver.
And, to me, Gilroy and Bickel are Hartford caliber players that just happen to be up here with the big club.
