We understand Yak is going nowhere.
That said, as courtesy answer to OP, Rangers would do
Stepan + MDZ + Girardi + Boyle
Yakupov + J. Schultz
Step = legit 1c (not elite top 10, but legit 1c) w/vision as good as RNH (RNH a little better shot)
MDZ = lefty block Howson covets
Girardi = D first D, minutes eater together this is a matching L-D first pair
Boyle = bottom pair C/LW, good on faceoffs, D, shows up for playoffs
Yakupov = bonafide lefty sniper at LW where Rangers are thin
J Schultz = top pair righty w/offense NY needs, great combo w/McDonagh
On paper seems win-win, allows NY to redeploy logjams at C and LD, gives Oil more than OP asked for.
