I think trading for him would round out our D. I don't think a guy who has played good D for so many years just forgets in one offseason. With the Rangers struggling (OMG we have more points than them!), maybe they think of cashing in on their free agents. Some of their beat writers have said that could be a possibility if the struggles continue(of the team that is).

Physical D-man who can move the puck out of our zone and play tough minutes. He won't come cheap, but I think he'd be a great addition for us.
Girardi - Ference; Petry - Smid; J.Schultz - Belov doesn't look too bad. The dream piece would be a LH #1 guy to pair with Petry, but beggars can't be choosers.

If they'd deal him right now, I'd deal Marincin++. I wouldn't want to pay closer to the deadline when we're likely in a super bad position.

Not going to deal a 1st for a rental. We shouldn't be doing that till we're playoff regulars.

Unfortunately, unless we're getting a player with term on contract, I don't see any significant moves coming till Hall gets back and MacT can assess where we are relative to the standings.
