Thats two forward spots, the others in question are Richards, Clowe, and Boyle.

Do the Rangers re-sign Clowe?

Buyout Richards?

Trade Boyle?

And if so.. how are they replaced? How much of the roster was Torts losing the team and needing a new coach or scenery, and how are you going to replace them? Over pay in free agency? Trade assets from the system?

Team doesn't exactly need a rebuild, or an overhaul for that matter.
Here's how I see thsi team headed into the summer.

Kreider - Stepan - Nash
??????? - Brassard - ???????
Hagelin - Miller - Callahan
??????? - Newbury - Dorsett

MY preference is to sign Raffi Torres for the 4th line LW spot.

It's the 2nd line LW and RW spots that will be tougher to fill. Maybe if we move both Staal and MDZ and buyout Richards we will have $$ to re-sign Clowe and sign Horton?

Kreider - Stepan - Nash
Clowe - Brassard - Horton
Hagelin - Miller - Callahan
Torres - Newbury - Dorsett

McDonagh - Girardi
Moore - McBain
Stralman - McIlrath/Murphy

Lundqvist
Biron

I think that can be done.
