If you want a forward, maybe Kreider and deal Del Zotto for a top six forward.
The year he was a UFA, the Rangers, Kings and Thrashers were trying to sign him and they were throwing some big contracts at him. He stayed for less, I wouldn't be shocked if the Rangers are still interested.

But I don't see Ray trading him within the division, even if Kreider would be a damn good asset coming back. He'll likely send him out West. Actually, damn you...now I am thinking about how good Kreider would look on Sid or Geno's left wing. Man...time to fire up NHL2013. Why would you guys be willing to give him up? I mean yeah Orpik is a solid defenseman, but Kreider is one of your better prospects is he not?

He's not lighting the AHL on fire, but powerforwards take time.
