In my honest opinion, we're not as far away from being a contender as some people think. Come up with 1 move (try to keep it as realistic as possible) to make us into a potential contender for this season.
Dubinsky, Anisimov, Rozsival, 1st, 2nd(WSH) for Brad Richards
Unfortunately the 1 move you or any1 could be thinking of making for THIS season is about as bad a move you can make. This season is not about this season it's about the next seasons'. here is where you keep Artie and Dubie, let Mcd and Step get experience and chemistry. That trade is horrible btw. Absolutely one of the worst trades in Rangers history if it was ever made and that's saying something. If you trade those guys it better be for Malkin and no less. You wanna win a cup? Keep your young guys and let them keep getting better, hit their prime on this team. Unfortunately anyone who wants this team to win this year at all costs is impatient and if the GM thought this way we'd have to hang em.
So i went outside the box to answer this question b/c the answer is you don't make a big move to be a contender this year.
