There's ways of doing, but those ways mean moving guys some here want to hold onto dearly for some very odd reasons.

Wish we could have moved MDZ for RO'R when we had the chance.

Bigger, stronger, faster and more talented 3rd line center for Hags and Cally.

here's what I would want to do.

I would look to trade the following players:

Pyatt, Powe, Boyle, Asham and Staal.

I would use the final compliance buyout on Richards this summer.

I would resign Clowe to a 3 year deal at 4 million per
Resign Stepan for his 2 year Bridge deal at 3.75 per
Resign McD long term for 4.25 per.
Sign Raffi Torres to a 3 year deal at 2.25 per
Sign Nathan Horton for 4 years at 5.5 per.

Promote to the big club Fasth, Lindberg, Newbury and Miller for the forwards and Dylan McIlrath for defence.

Below is what the team would look like. Below that is what my lines would look like.

My Custom Lineup
Chris Kreider ($1.325m) / Derek Stepan ($3.750m) / Rick Nash ($7.800m)
Ryane Clowe ($4.000m) / Derick Brassard ($3.200m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.275m)
Carl Hagelin ($2.000m) / J.T. Miller ($1.244m) / Derek Dorsett ($1.633m)
Raffi Torres ($2.250m) / Kris Newbury ($0.600m) / Jesper Fasth ($0.900m)
Oscar Lindberg ($0.760m) / Nathan Horton ($5.500m)
Ryan McDonagh ($4.250m) / Dan Girardi ($3.325m)
Michael Del Zotto ($2.550m) / Anton Stralman ($1.700m)
John Moore ($0.965m) / Steve Eminger ($0.950m)
Dylan McIlrath ($1.295m)
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m)
Martin Biron ($1.300m)
Buyout: Brad Richards ($0.000m)

(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,447,500; BONUSES: $2,250,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $4,102,500

Kredier - Stepan - Nash
Clowe - Brassard - Horton
Hagelin - Miller - Callahan
Torres - Newbury - Dorsett
xtra forwards - Lindberg and Fast

McDonagh - Girardi
Del Zotto - Moore
Eminger - Stralman
xtra Defence - McIlrath


That would be a nice team to watch for 82 games plus playoffs
How are you affording to re-sign Lundqvist,Callahan and Girardi as group IIIs in 2014? The RFAa are DZ,Brassard,Kreider and Moore. The first 3 are arbitration eligible. How are you affording to pay those players in 2014 when you committed so much money to the group IIs,Clowe and the 2 free agent signings? The cap increases to $67M for 14-15. Where is the money coming from? Any moves the Rangers make this summer will be with an eye towards being able to keep their players in 2014. The Avs wanted DZ,Kreider and a #1 for ROR. That wasn't happening. Plus ROR wanted big money. The Rangers will need more than 2 years if they are giving Stepan close to $4M.
