Who is to say the Rangers with Amonte and Gartner would not have beaten Jersey? They handled them during the regular season and it was a struggle in the playoffs. They traded a #1 pick for Verbeek because they couldn't put the puck in the ocean. They lost Amonte and Gartner the previous spring. Then swapped 2 young players for Robitaille and Samuelsson. Then they swapped Norstrom for the ex-Oilers. There is salary cap now so its a different league but the Rangers still need the young and cheap assets if they want to be a good team in the future. Any major rental will come with a #1 pick and/or top young player price tag. Gaustad went for a #1 pick last February. The Rangers can't do that.
I agree, which is why i dont want any trades right now. id like to pick up an UFA on a 1 year deal to help the bottom2 lines which have looked between mediocre and just flat out horrendous at times.

i cant even remember 1 good shift our 4th line has had all season so far.

anyways...Dvorak, Moore, im all for it, as long as its a 1 year deal.
