I generally agree that the team should be getting younger, not older -- but not everyone can be 20-25 years old. And for the most part, you're not going to pry away any solid players in that age range from a team. The Rangers are one of the youngest teams in the NHL as it is.
Yeah, for a rental, no thanks. If they're sure they can sign him, might not be a bad addition. Solid depth on the bottom 6 that is actually hard to play against. I'm just wary of moving prospects for a rental who is seemingly dealing with the same problems that a lot of the team is already battling.
