I believe Boyle and Pyatt will be dealt. Last night Boyle was showcased on Richards wing.

That would be the difference. He can't be a checking line forward which is fine because the LW depth on this team is abysmal.
I strongly disagree with the notion that our forwards are more talented than Carolina's. Who on our team is a 100 point center? Then you have Jordan Staal who would be good enough to be a 1c on this team. Not only that but you have Tlusty who has more goals than anyone on our team. Not to mention Skinner who has insane ability, and Semin who is capable of 40 goals any given season, as well as blossoming into a playmaking winger.

Not to mention how phenomenal Joni Pitkanen is with the puck on his stick, I believe he has better vision/passing than MDZ in the O-zone. Their forwards obliterate ours, while we have the advantage in our defense and goaltending. So Jokinen isn't suffering down in Raleigh, quite the opposite actually on a team loaded up-front with Ruutu, Jokinen, Staal, Staal, Skinner, Semin, Tlusty (all would be top 6 forwards on this team).

Hell yes to Ott.

Knowing these ridiculous prices though, Ott will probably go for a 1st + high end prospect.

We'll maybe see a trade for a defender (similar to a Morris). Half season rental with some sort of use. Hamrlik doesn't seem to be getting the job done.

Also, Boyle has underperformed a bunch this year but I don't think we should trade him. He's turning it around. He fights for his team mates, I don't think another mercenary would do as good of a job as him at this stage of the season. We're a hot streak away from making an impact in the east. We have still yet to find the identity of this seasons team. Trading important locker room guys isn't the answer to finding it.
With OTT and MON this week and home and home against Pitt the following the reality is we are on the verge of being pretty much out of it if we can't at least split against PITT and win both in Canada . Lose all 4 in regs and we are finished .
That being said I'm not advocating a trade for JU Jo . He's a better player than PYatt by a long shot however but the cap doesn't seem to fit

Outside of those players you just mentioned who do they have?

Where does he play?

Semin-Staal-Tlusty
Skinner-Staal-Ruutu
Jokinen....

That was my point. Depth.

I'm talking about guys who it would really be there second stint with the Rangers.

Even Avery i wouldn't consider much of a re-tread since it was the next season.

Yeah, that's why if we get him, it will be for pieces that we don't want to give up.
