Give up multiple pieces for someone else's star. It's the Ranger way.
Look, Kane is a great player, but this team is in no position to be giving up a large package in exchange for one guy. We're staring a top-5 pick in the face, with some very good offensive talent available in this draft. The gap between the high end talent in the draft and being an NHLer isn't what it once was. Kids make the jump every year. 7 of the 2013 top-10 have seen NHL ice this season.
There's no magic bullet here. Figure out what kind of team we want to be, then move out the guys that don't fit. Bring in ones that will fit. Draft players that will fit. This isn't going to be a situation where the team is horrible, a trade is made, and suddenly the team is great.
