If the Rangers do trade Gabby to Vancouver they'd have to take back a big contract like Jason Garrison or David Booth.

Washington is another candidate but once again, either Green is Backstrom would have to come back and both are on the decline. I wouldn't mind that so much if one of Johannsen/Orlov/Forsberg and maybe even Chimeria could come back in the deal.

Best option for restocking comes with the Wings if they'd be interested. Take your pick of Tatar/Ferraro/Nyquvist/Jurco/Frk. I'd even be willing to take back Bertuzzi or Samuelson.

Once again, I'm not supporting the idea of trading Gabby just to trade him, but if they can restock the forwards in the system (once Fasth/Lindberg/St. Croix turn pro the only one left with any real offensive potential is Nieves and he's 2-3 years away) then it might be worth exploring.

I'm willing to take back Dubi too if CLB would do Boyle/Asham one of the 3rds for Dubi. They'd save 1.5 million in cap and for us Dubi+Miller+Pyatt>Boyle+Miller+Pyatt.

Feel free to yell at me
