Their offense has dried up, they are struggling a bit, yet they are in 8th place and only two points behind the devils for 7th. If they can catch up, they avoid pitts in the first round, and have a better chance of extra revenue from a 2nd round of playoffs.
No idea what to propose, but they have a whack load of defense and a lot of depth for prospects as well, so it makes a lot of sense for both teams. There's also a big connection between the two teams, and these two teams have traded together quite often.
Off the top of my head, I can see Hemsky, 2nd player (Jones/Petrell/Whitney) and a decent pick for one of the 4 studs the rangers have presently on the blueline, maybe Del Zotto being the most likely.
Interesting thoughts, but is NYR really looking to deal one of their defensive core? You would have to think Edm would want someone from there for sure, and I think if they add enough to Hemsky it could be possible, but I'm just not sure if NYR considers this.
Any NYR followers / fans that could add their input?
