I agree. I would say Staal is our #1 and McDonagh is #1A. Though if AV gives Mac some PP time this year then he might become take over as #1.

Regarding Girardi - I know he's valued around the league but, given he's a UFA after this year, do you think there's any chance he get's traded at the deadline?

Say the rangers are amongst the top 3-4 teams in the division but, are still struggling offensively and McIlrath has progressed so that he can fill in on the bottom pair decently - would it make sense to trade Girardi?

I understand he's a warrior, an alternate captain, and if we are serious about the playoffs we need him but, is it farfetched to to think he could be packaged with one of our surplus of wingers for a solid 1st/2nd line winger.

I love Girardi too but, he's I don't think he would age well on his next contract and it may benefit Rangers to trade him while his value is high. Thoughts?
