While I think McD is somewhat overrated by Habs fans for obvious reasons...that's a trade that would be very hard to turn down, I agree. I don't think McD is exceptional at anything but he's good to very good across the board and a Subban and McD combo gives you a first pairing for the next decade. It's hard to resist that.

But I doubt either team does that trade anyway, like I said, the Rangers aren't trading an American of that pedigree. Likewise, I get trading Markov for a Hedman, OEL or Pietrangelo, but also, not happening.
