Pac is clearly an upgrade over Wilson and Stephan is as well it makes no sense to give up Josi with his contract. If there is one defenseman that should be trade bait it should be Jones. He will be cheap for a while but in the end a decision will have to be made to keep him or trade Weber. If the kids as good as projected in 3 or 4 years his salary demand will explode.

It is not very likely that any top forward is going to be signed here as a F/A and if DP is going to get one thru a trade it is going to hurt. The trade proposals that most here are putting out are just laughable.
I am very much in agreement with all the points made here. Too many trades that are filling needs but gutting our depth and futures and just creating new holes to fill. That aside, I also strongly doubt the Rangers take the proposed package.
