I'd trade him for practice pucks. Getting Postma would be a steal and the Jets would be morons to do this.
I wouldn't say free, he's not total deadwood. In any event, it is an obvious case of attempted swindle. Definitely, Pyatt is a useful smaller piece the Jets can use, but no he's more of a throw in than a core piece.
Previous discussions on this topic were requesting the high ranking Jesper Fast, which are no go for Rangers. Fast looks like the real deal. Postma shows potential, but there is no certainty he will/how quickly will he master NHL game? I agree he has #4 potential, but right now he is really only solidly useful as a PP righty specialist.
Rangers should pay a REASONABLE premium, not crazy overpayment, for such a useful cog.
I am optimistic there is still a deal to be done, somewhere in between Fast and Pyatt. What about something like
Christian Thomas (highly skilled boom-bust RW) , Calle Anderson (long term replacement D) and Pyatt
Postma and a 4th? Something like that?
