Other than that, I agree with you, RGY. Besides, Perron makes $3.8m and most of us are including Kreider's $1.3m in the season cap calculation. The Rangers would be able to clear up $2.5m in cap space if that's what they absolutely needed to do.
Absolutely Tawnos. If you are a person outside this organization, say from STL, you may think Kreider's value has dropped, but not a ton. If any scout has done their homework they know it would be a steal to get Kreider back for Perron. The kid still has it. I firmly believe that even if Kreider's stock has dropped in the eyes of other organizations, it certainly hasn't dropped to Rangers upper management. They are high on this kid. Very high. They wouldn't have pushed to get him to leave BC even earlier. They wouldn't have sprung him into the 2012 playoffs with a #1 Eastern Conference team that almost won the President's Trophy if they didn't think so highly of him. He isn't going anywhere. You don't give up on a player who is 6'3" with the speed he has, the shot he has, and the physicality he can bring to the table. He showed it in that Boston series.
