Here we go again with this fantasyland with overhauling the roster again.......

Keep Torts and Sullivan. Just add a coach to run the power play. Would win us games instead of losing us games.

I firmly believe the Rangers need to add a gritty fourth liner. I'm cool with adding Torres. Forget Gonchar, Streit and Antropov. Keep Boyle and use him and Lindberg as our 3rd/4th line centers. Stralman is good enough to be our 5th/6th defenseman. Keep. He was impressive when he came here in 2012. Probably our most consistent defenseman all year.

If MDZ and Miller gets us Ryan, great. Think it'll take more.

I'm for consistency. But if we have a few young guys coming up, by all means. We have Kreider and Miller. No more adding crazy amounts of players unless it's adding our prospects. I'm not much of a Del Zotto fan, but c'mon, he's not even at the age where defenseman are at their peak. I'm not saying he's not expendable, but he has the tools. If any defenseman needs to be traded, it's Girardi. Again, I'm for consistency, but if there needs to be a trade, trade him. His value won't go any higher right now.
