MTL isn't moving Cole.

I wish we signed him in the off-season though.

If they aren't going to address all the issues keeping this team from being a definite contender and a trip to at least the ECF, I hope they don't address anything.

Get rid of the dead weight, and go to battle with what they have. No use wasting picks or moving prospects for rentals, if they're not going to make the moves that put this team over the top. See what next year brings if they can't make a deep run with a young roster.

More scoring, primary, and secondary, and/or someone who could potentially spark the PP. Defensive depth with deep playoff experience for the bottom pairing. Bottom-6 faceoff guy with hopefully some secondary scoring skills.

Personally, there aren't many players I see on the market who address any, or all of these needs, and fit in with this team.

Based on the rumors putting a very strong package together for Nash is a no brainer for the rangers.

What are they giving up?

Dubi.. Salary must be cut somewhere. 6 goals for his pay is too high a price to pay.

1st round draft choice- Almost an early second round pick.

Two top prospects. (erixson / Kreider) They're still prospects. The Rangers can afford to lose 1 D and 1 forward prospect to obtain a 29 year old star who can carry the team for years after gabby is gone. Age fits well with lundy.

Odds that both prospects / 1st round pick become all stars? I'll take the guaranteed star now and take a shot.

From a risk/reward the trade should be made if the rumors of whose in the package is close. Current roster changes?? A massive trade up.

I would love to bring in both both brothers if possible.

Having them both in MTL was a problem in the first place, supposedly partying issues. Bringing both of them to NYC, if that was the case, would be a disaster.

Plus, with Nashville going to the playoffs, there is little chance Sergei is available.

Sather won't trade Kreider for Nash.

What makes you think he'd trade him for an unneeded centerman?

If the rumored package of Dubi + is the offer for Nash then he's my #1 target. Behind him, Gaustad. Big center man who can win face offs, kill penalties, score some goals and isn't afraid to drop the gloves. Would like him as our 3C moving Boyle back to 4C.

After that, there is nobody that excites me all that much. I don't think Brown is available, I don't know much about Ott. Unless Sather pulls a rabbit out of his hat then it's Nash or Gaustad for me. And I don't offer more than a 2nd/3rd + B prospect for Gaustad.

If Torts can get AK to "buy into the system", it could be a steal for the Rangers.

Stastny
Stepan
Richards
Boyle

That's ridiculous center depth, but not sure it will cure the scoring woes.

Edit: With lack of comment on the actual trade package, which to me is overpayment and not helping either team.

To me this is when fans start going off the wall. Gaustad is Boyle plus 10 years.

No, Gaustad is Boyle but better offensively. Guy's only 30 and can win faceoffs...essentially what we need from our 3rd line center.

Stastny is a playmaker. He'd be playing with Prust and Fedotenko if that trade were to go down.

I see him being quite successful here in that instance.

And PS: We don't need announcers to tell us faceoffs are important when we watch the Rangers lose key faceoffs every night.

I believe he said something earlier in the season to the effect of Selanne and Koivu (I think) being the only untouchables on the team

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE THE DEADLINE

"Twas the night before the deadline, when all through the NHL
Not a GM was stirring, not to buy nor to sell .
Their rosters were full of has beens & spares,
In hopes that Stanleys Cup - soon would be theirs.

The players were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of hat-tricks danced in their heads.
And Bettman and Daly and their salary cap,
Had just settled their brains for a long winter’s nap.

When down in Columbus there was such a clatter,
**lund awoke from him slumber to see what was the matter.
Away to his iPad he flew like a flash,
To open Mozilla and he googled "Rick Nash".

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his "work",
And filled all them twitter sites, with rumors for jerks.
And layed his long finger up inside of his nose,
And gave it a nod, and a wild idea it arose!

He sprang to his chair, to give his followers a scoop,
And they all believed him - although it was poop.
So he thought up a lie, a fib & a myth
And he blurted out names, like Brown, Schenn, Ott and Smyth

And he said just believe me cuz IŽm so well connected
I might not have pedigree but whats to be expected
By tommorrow at three Nash will be a Leaf
Just become a subscriber and IŽll give you a brief

But most of us knew it was all BS he claimed
So we called him out saying you should be ashamed
But we heard him exclaim, Guys I know I am right,
"Good pickings tomorrow, and to all a good-night!"

We've had interest in O'Brien before. I wouldn't mind him. From what I've watched, he seems like a better version of Bickel. Would be an OK piece, but hardly necessary.

Bob McKenzie ‏ @TSNBobMcKenzie

May be a tactic by CBJ, or not, but teams with most interest in Nash don't believe he'll move by deadline. Switching focus to other targets.

hmm..
