Play all the prospects promote McIlrath . Grt back some roster players and prospects in Gaborik and Girardi rentals from some contenders . Go into camp with fresh hungry low cost prospects and let em gel . This team is not going anywhere as constructed
It sounds good, young fresh players all playing together finding chemistry and turning this team in to something competitive. However, the likelihood of that happening is slim.

Look at all the young talent the Oilers have. It is far superior to that of the Rangers and they are still sitting at .500 hockey, out of playoff contention. The Rangers have an advantage with a better D corp, and Lundqvist, but bringing in a bunch of prospects isn't going to just turn this team around overnight.

I agree Richards will be forcing the hand if he continues to play so poorly. I am not sold on trading Gaborik however. The guy is still ultimately the teams best goal scorer. They should move him at the deadline next year if they aren't going to contend, and/or don't see him as a part of the future. Which is all likely.
