Probably not what NYR need. Rynnas and Franson do nothing for the Rangers, they're way down on the depth chart
What I had in mind was having Franson on the second pair with either Staal or McDonagh (depending on if Torts reunites the old Staal/Girardi pairing) and Stralman moves down to the third pairing with Del Zotto.
We have enough defensemen actually, Gardiner is also due back this week and there's always Ranger who would an option in the summer.
Hypothetically, Hegelin would replace MacArther who's A UFA and could be moved at the deadline.
Something tells me that MacArthur is going to be a leaf for a while. I doubt they'd give him the A (somewhat a vote of confidence) and trade him. Especially since leadership is definitely hard to come by in Toronto.
Meh. I'm okay with Eminger as the 6D, but I really have no idea why Torts keeps dressing Bickel. No reason to do this, LW depth is short and if this happens we have Pyatt at 2LW. Kreider is disappointing.
Hagelin has a bright future here and is a very valuable hard working player. Why are we panicking here? Yeah, I'll be the first to admit he aucked the first two games, but then again so did everyone else excluding Del Zotto, Nash, and Richards.
He hasn't even played his 3rd game of the season and we are already resorting to trying to dump a player for a #5 Dman and crap. We wouldn't even put him in a trade for Rick Nash just a mere 6 months ago....
