So sick and tired of the trades for more defense.

Shattenkirk falls behind Girardi, McDonagh and Staal on the blueline depth chart.

We need forwards, more specifically, ones that can score.

You dont use Marian Gaborik to get you a 2nd pairing defenseman. You use him to get top six forwards. We need offense.
Obviously the Rangers would need a top 9 winger back to replace him, but that's besides the point.

Who on this team can move the puck well out of the back end besides Del Zotto? McDonagh has shown flashes, but he's not quite there yet. Stralman is decent, but he's a bottom pairing guy.

Rumor has it the Rangers want Dan Boyle. Personally, I'd rather have a guy with the same skill set that's 12 years younger and doesn't carry a 6.6 million cap number.
