Some thoughts:

1)The Rangers aren't dumping DZ. As of this moment they have MCD,

Girardi, and Strahls to count on. Maybe Stahl comes back in top shape? Maybe Moore upgrades? Maybe the minors ads a piece or two? At the moment, only 3 D to count on.

With that said, they will evaluate who's available in the summer and decide the best way to go. The inconsistency in MDZ's game is simply giving the Rangers an excuse to listen to offers rather than cutting off the conversation with "he's not available".

2)Yes MDZ is only 23.

What kind of player was Stahl at 23? Girardi? Mcdonagh?

They fit right in with fewer problems. If MDZ became a DG, MS, or RM It would be enough. In the meantime we're 4 years into the experiment and he is not a Brian Leatch. Is 23, with 4 years of pro experience young? Maybe? maybe not?

3)Zubov was a one dimensional player. He was pure offense. He had 12 goals and 77 assists on the championship team. If you could live with his defense he was your puck moving, great shot special teams specialist. He was a major contributor to the Rangers championship team at the age of 23.
