RoR is a fantastic player, he would fit nicely in the Rangers organization, but trading DZ for him is a little too rich for my blood.
Last season there were 100 50+ point forwards in the league, but there were only 19 40+ scoring Dmen.
They are both young and will improve, but DZ has the rarer skillset.
DZ is also need for the Rangers. He is banged up currently and our back up is, gulp ... Eminger.
Plus there is the contract situation to worry about.

As to the other half of the trade, it is very tough to trade a 40 goal scorer. I don't see the Rangers doing it even for Clowe, Boyle and a first.
2 years ago many Rangers fans would have jumped at the chance, Sather may have been tempted too. At this point, I don't see how the Rangers can survive without Gabby's goal production.
