Um... did Sam Gagner die or or something? It wasn't too long ago that Mac-T stated that getting Gagner resigned and now allowing him to become the youngest UFA in NHL history is his biggest priority right now.

As for the OP, I'd take MPS out for starters.
Then I'd make sure DMZ was resigned to a 4-6 year contract extension for whatever people deem to be reasonable.
Then I might even have Nick Schultz tossed in from Edmonton's side.
Then I'm pretty sure I'd have New York throw struggling Kreider into the mix.
And then I'd have Edmonton toss in a 2nd or 3rd rounder to appease distraught Rangers fans.

To Edmonton:

To New York:
7th overall
Nick Schultz
2nd/3rd round pick.

New York gets a high draft pick and a decent 3rd pairing d-man.
Edmonton gets a top 4 d-man who can move the puck well and a big left winger who'll at least be good enough to turn into a good checking line winger. There's a shot in the dark that he could turn into a top 6 forward, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
