You are definitely taking a short term hit by losing MDZ in a trade, but the gamble is that the long term gain is better by hitting on a #1/#2 center in ROR than the short term loss by dealing a #4 defenseman in MDZ.

Long term, MDZ should be replaced adequately by guys already nearing readiness in our system (McIlrath soon, Skjei not too long after).

Do you think you are costing yourself a cup chance this year by dealing a top 4 defenseman? If so, the Rangers will have to pony up some other cheaper asset for a rental at the deadline to fill that hole.
