I like the idea of getting a good, young 2-way center in Burmistrov to add to the center corps here. He can play wing if need be and the Rangers feel Lindberg is ready to be that 3c. The 1st rounder will help the Rangers add another good prospect to the stable.

The Asham deal moves out Arron who was pretty good here last year, but it brings in Parros who is one of the better heavyweights in the game and a great locker room guy. Zuccarello is dealt for the picks, allowing the Rangers to select in this years 2nd round.

I re-signed Clowe and Eminger as the Rangers UFA's, I like what they both bring. I think 3 years is fine for Clowe if he will take the money I offered. Eminger is an ideal #7 for this team.

I signed Nystrom and Streit as I am big fan of both. Nystrom brings in a very good PKer and a player who brings some nastiness and edginess to his game. He can play center and wing and can play as a 3rd or 4th liner. He will help chip in some goals from the bottom-6 which was devoid of any offense this season.

Streit is the wildcard here. He is obviously up there in age but I really feel that if paired with a solid defensive d-man like Staal he will thrive. They need someone who will command the PP and bring a shot from the point. Streit brings both of those things. 2 years max but I would also like to bring him in to be a bit of a mentor to some of the younger players who have some talent like Moore and McDonagh to refine their offensive games.
