Maybe even Fistric for a 5th or 6th who's better than Bickel but somehow 50x slower

Scott Hannan is hurt but he fits the team's MO better than Eminger and Bickel.

As far as forwards for depth:

--Blake Comeau, Chuck Kobasew and Eroc Fehr are all cheap UFAs who can offer PK help.

With Staal coming back before the playoffs, and a relatively easier schedule to finish the season, I dont see any reason for a major trade.

The lineup the Rangers will present tonight against the Panthers (Staal notwithstanding) is the lineup I'd like to see them open the playoffs with.
I'm sure Smid will bring in much more than a 3rd.
