Next year Richards 6.6 mil bought out offsets 6 per to Perry

Rangers use loss of salary on Staal + Girardi + upcoming raise to Stepan for younger players

Also, trade Brian Boyle + Christian Thomas to CBH for Dylan Olsen + Mark McNeil
next year
Gaborik Halpern Perry
Nash Miller Kreider
Hagelin Lindberg Callahan
Powe McNeil Pyatt

McDonagh Stralman
MDZ Olsen
McIlrath Bickel/Eminger

obviously, still a work in progress but hopefully lose Torts and expect some scoring to return. G outstanding need to add to our D and Cs.

For Ducks, it changes the dynamic of team, now much more D oriented. Stepan is nice as something in case Getzlaf walks. Lots of options to stand pat, or trade each for alternate returns...
Dunno how you can say this is a step forward.
Halpern on the first line? Okay ...
Lindberg may or may not be ready for the NHL next year.
You lose the only promising Center this team has.
You lose 2 top 4 former all star Dmen.
For Perry, who is elite, but is not worth tearing down this team. He is a Sharp guy too. Why would he agree to 5 year 6M contract, when he knows he can get close to 7.5 3 months later?
And if he is going to give any team a discount, it would be the Ducks.

A resounding No from the rangers.

Also keep your trade proposals small. The more players you include, the more ridiculous they become.
