Rangers add grit, leadership and size up front. Winchester been on the trading block, but is young has size. They can use another dman, Rachunek would help their d. It would give us a spot for Staal, Pock or another ufa like markov.
I like Rachunek, I think his time away from the NHL has made people forget how good he is.
However, I just don't think the Oilers can deal Moreau. At a time when we're apparently having a hard time convincing people to stay in town, trading away a guy who negotiated himself a pay-cut in exchange for a long-term deal would be the wrong message.
Staal for Torres is iffy from my POV (Oilers fan though). Rachunek isn't close.
We are looking for a top pairing guy. We have enough 3-6 guys.
thats a tough one to call s7ark, Raffi is still improving, But Staal looks to me like a surefire top pairing defender. he'll be a solid number 2 easily. but Torres is a heavy price to pay, I guess with the loss of Pronger though it might be a move you make simply because defenders are harder to come by.
You don't trade away players that score 27 goals in their 2nd regular season, especially when they have the ability to injure other players with clean hits.
very poor choice of words, that is not an ability to aspire to, it may be an outcome but I doubt that he or the oilers coaches for that matter would want him on the Ice with the intent to injure, clean hit or not. very poor choice of words
