Why? Because not a single Rangers fan or non-Canucks fans actually dismissed the deal? I'm a Devils fans and it's quite obvious the Rangers lose that deal when you look at their needs.

No argument there friend, but it was a Ranger fan that offered it, even if it was in jest.
Although New Jersey has a few bottom six players I wouldn't mind getting a better look at, didn't come to make a bid yourself did you
Yeah, one Ranger fan....so he all the sudden speaks collectively for all the Ranger fans?
Devils are in no position to trade away a forward.
No point in me making a deal, because it wouldn't make sense on my team's end. Devils can really only part with D prospects and Tallinder or Volchenkov. Anyone else either won't be traded, has a NTC/NMC, or we can afford to get rid of them.
Helps both teams IMO. Abby gives 100% every night, finishes checks, sticks up for teammates (albeit - loses 9/10 times) and is good on the PK.
With Jarkrok, Sheahan, and Anderson all natural centers and likely knocking on the door soon if a head has to roll Id like it to be Abs. his could also permit the return to a 3 scoring lines + 1 shut-down line that we had in the until 09/10 when Huds, Sammy, and Hossa all left in the summer.
