NYR need to add big time. I'm on board with those who feel Stepan would need to be in the package, although IMO McDonagh is being massively oversold in the OP.

How is he bordering on becoming an elite defenseman, and where do you see elements of a potential offensive side? The Rangers sure could have used some of this untapped scoring talent when they basically couldn't score a goal the last several seasons.

McDonagh is a top 4 shutdown dman and has more or less plateau'd and is not worth being mentioned in the context of a one for one trade for the 1st OA. And I know that's going to come off as flaming NYR fans but I feel that's absolutely the truth.

Sather definitely hosed Gainey in filching him for Gomez but there is no mistaking him for a franchise defenceman.
