Stralman as an achor back there? Eminger? lol

Keep Staal. Show patience with Kreider and Miller. That'll solve our issues.
My view:

If Staal is in play it's only because DZ was offered will relatively little interest. If Staal is traded then we know who other teams really want (IMO). The Rangers need more scoring. They probably are willing to downgrade their D if they believe that they can sufficiently upgrade their offense (especially the PP). I suspect a more up tempo game is the order of the day and the defensive/goalie low scoring games are a thing of the past. Is Bobby Ryan a possibility? Perhaps a center with some offensive skills?
