Anyway, with this latest plan, you're replacing Brad Richards and Marian Gaborik with Michael Ryder and Ryan O'Reilly (you're also making the defense weaker since it'd likely cost Del Zotto). I see what you're saying about saving some money, but hoping that Player X is available isn't really a suitable plan to build a team.

Ryan O'Reilly
Michael Ryder
Player X

Brad Richards
Marian Gaborik
Michael Del Zotto

I realize Richards and Gaborik are struggling right now, but even so, I fail to see how this makes the team better.
The Rangers would spend money. You are also not taking into account that which wold be acquired by Gaborik's departure.

I was on the Red Wings forum and in a few minutes I got an offer of:

Filpulla + Nyquist + Kindl + 1st '14

That is without any negotiating. Change Nyquist to Tatar who is in the NHL now and that's a solid deal if they can re-sign Filpulla to be that #2 center.
