Just curious to see what NYR would want? Everyone's talking about Jordan and there seems to be a bit of a theme of the 'Canes wanting all four brothers at some point. So just curious to get a feel for what (if anything) the Rangers would want from Carolina in order to make a trade. And if nothing else, there're 50 million Jordan threads, so it's about time Marc got one for himself
Yeah I think Faulk would have to be in the deal. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to have his shot on our blue line but more would likely have to be given.
I think do Staal + 2013 2nd for Faulk, Pitkanen, 2013 1st.
or Staal, 2nd for Faulk & McBain
Other Rangers fans may think its underpayment (the first deal), but I think we'd benefit from adding 2 dman who are both solid but unspectacular since it will take some minutes from the top 4.
Also, Pitkanen could really help the PP.
I think most impartial fans would consider the 2nd deal around fair value.
Faulk is a non-starter, but you think you can get Marc Staal for peanuts?
Staal is a non-starter.
We don't want Pitkanen, lol.
McBain would be nice to pair with McDonagh, but we're not giving up Marc Staal for him.
Personally, Id comsider Del Zotto and Dubinsky for McBain and Sutter, but it's basically a lateral move and I can't see either team being overly interested in taking the risk.
But back on topic, you're dreaming if you think you can land Marc Staal for anything less than severe overpayment. Skinner alone wouldn't even be enough.
To be fair to them, I put in Pitkanen lol.
I know he's not ideal, but with Faulk & a 1st, I think it would make our d more deep. I think it would be 'fair value', but it would certainly not be an overpayment.
Personally though, if we got McBain & Faulk for him I'd trade him in a heart beat because frankly I think one of the reasons we lost was b/c Girardi and McDonagh were absolutely tired. Doing that trade would give us a top 6 of:
MDZ - McBain
we'd even have money to sign a moderate defensive UFA (Suter ..not srs)
Staal is not going to get as much as some NYR fans are asking for, I can't see CAR moving Faulk as it doesn't make sense to move a good young dman to get a good young dman plus adding.
Pitkanen and 2013 1st I would say but NYR are pretty deep on the back end, Pitkanen's puck moving will help the team though.
He would though. Why? because he's not being shopped.
If someone approaches you and asks for Skinner you are not going to make a lateral move, you want to be certain you're upgrading, otherwise you'd keep your player.
I mean yeah asking for Skinner + is unrealistic. But asking for a 2nd pairing Dman and a top defensive prospect for a sure fire first pairing guy is VERY reasonable.
Just b/c Staal isn't flashy doesn't mean he won't get a great return. If you were trading Skinner you'd expect at least a top forward prospect & a top six forward.
A Penguin fan not taking the time to read through the topic and assuming the return is garbage. Sounds familiar...
You'll notice that the topic started by asking what the Rangers wanted and not actually making a proposal, right?
Yes I did and then when Rangers fans put out their proposal, they were shut down and given counter offers which are bad. The OP was asking what Rangers fans wanted. Clearly, they would want a substantial return since they don't want or have a need to trade Staal. Yet, when presented with what it would take, they were shot down. Did you really expect them to bend over for you?

Well then, interested to hear how you think the counters were garbage what you think a fair offer would be from the Canes?
