Probably this. The Rangers think Kreider will be a more solid fit down the road at 2LW than Anisimov or Dubinsky. I don't disagree.

Also AA was dealt because his contract is running out and Sather already used his bridge contract on him. He'll rightfully demand 4m+, which isn't what we can afford to have given him.
