The Canucks don't have a 2nd in '04(traded it for Hedberg). The deal could be altered a bit, what defensemen do the Rangers have that could be dealt? How has Mironov played?
As for Umberger, he may be a bit hard to sign. He isn't asking for a lot(wants more then what Burke gave his buddy Kesler), around $800,000 base, but he's sat out almost an entire season, he may just sit out another couple months and become a UFA. That said, he's stated he wants to play in the USA, and what better place then New York. If the Rangers offered him a decent contract, I think he'd take it considering he might have to wait until the new CBA is rectified to get a deal as a UFA.
