He's shown a willingness to throw in picks so you'll be thrilled. They don't have a first. They don't have real top prospects (assuming that Miller and Kreider are staying with the big club and won't be traded). They don't have the system depth to treat picks and prospects as disposable.
You are very philosophical about needs. You say they have needed a defenseman for over a year, but insist its unclear what they need.

I'm not suggesting emptying the system. But would you be unwilling to trade a 2nd and a 3rd for a player that would give the Rangers a better shot at some silver? For the purposes of the question, assume by that time a need have clearly identified itself.

That would make more sense.
