As for an offer. I think Boyle and Zuccarello who I don't think fits with the Rangers and perhaps a 4th round pick is fair. I'd gladly substitute Stralman for the 4th round pick. I'm not nearly as high on him as many Rangers fans. He's not on the same planet as Del Zotto talent wise but if you listen to Rangers fans, they ignore all his crappy games and focus on his good games. Basically, he will play 40 very good games, 20 average games and 20 lousy games.
Lightning can't play any defense and Boyle can help them a lot with that problem. I believe the Rangers really want Lindberg to take the spot of Boyle so he's expendable. Let's face it, if you put Zucc with either St. Louis or Stamkos, he will score.
Purcell would be a great fit for you but you don't want to give up what it would cost to get him. We want a top 4 D but not Del Zotto, we need a RHD who's defensive like Girardi. Don't see you moving him but you really struggled offensively last year and Purcell would help that at the cost of your D getting weaker.
We have no need for Zuccarello, Boyle would add size to our bottom 6 but is not a need, wouldn't mind Stralman as he would give us another righty and add depth on D if Salo gets hurt. I wouldn't mind a player like McIllrath but would have to add to him to get Purcell. The cap might become a problem though in that situation.
