If they move MDZ, they need to get a player back who can help now and grow with the team. Same player. Coyle. Connolly. Zibanejad. Chiasson. That type of player.
I do not know what type of contract MDZ will get next, but I'd think it's possible he could be considered a rental as well.
He's going to be an arbitration eligible RFA, he has the stats to get a good award should it go to arbitration, so he is not going to sign on the cheap because there is no reason for him to.
So it's possible if he is moved, the team who acquires him does not qualify him or walks away from the award thus making him a rental as well.
Same for the Rangers, he may not be back even if he is not traded if they can not get him to take less than he will likely be awarded through arbitration.
