Stepan and Richards begin to wow. And when I say wow I mean take over a game every once in a while(see: Gaborik vs. Bruins, Nash vs TB, Hagelin the past few games etc) which neither has done for a single game this year IMO
So everyone would be totally against trading a 3rd for Antropov? Chances are good he re-signs on the cheap
and could give us
another weapon in the top 6
. I've seen him play this year and he hasn't been nearly as bad as people are making him out to be. I'm sure this applies to the rest of the league as well, but he's been better than Richards. And please, spare me the stats argument. Richards has been disgusting this year in all facets of the game including being a defensive liability with his 3000 turnovers at the blueline and no look passes
I call a spade a spade. If you want to blow smoke up this teams ass and avoid obvious deficiencies, by all means enjoy fantasy land
I don't want to trade for him. I REALLY don't want to resign him. If anything, the Rangers need speed up the middle. They don't need another plodder who makes Brian Boyle look like Pavel Bure. Another weapon in the top 6? This team could use some forward help, but just adding any random player isn't likely to be an instant success.
