Ummm...

Hell no?

Let me clarify: Two of our top prospects for an offensive defenseman, a backup goalie when we already have two, and a guy that would probably not even make our roster. It's an awful deal.

Why would Tampa want three backup goalies?

Not that I would do it anyway but I'm curious why we would take both Biron and Pyatt.

Because Lindback sucks. You think he could be a serviceable backup? I would think Biron is an upgrade

Del Zotto could become your top-pairing guy with Salo. Connolly seems to be on the outs with you guys and wouldn't you do Koekkoek straight up for Del Zotto?

I thought Biron would be an upgrade over Lindback. Pyatt is merely a salary cap dump

I think he can be a serviceable starter. He was pretty good after a slow start. Plus he just turned 25 with under 65 NHL games, it would be stupid to give up on him now.

So Koekkoek for Del Zotto? Deal.

Why would NY want zero, or move MDZ for Koekkok? It's a bad proposal. Rangers don't really have a prospect I'd be confident backing up Lundqvist and Koekkok is nice, but he's a young puck moving d-man, which is what MDZ is. If we're going to move MDZ it might as well be in a package (better than this one) for a good young forward. Connolly has that potential, but as things stand currently, I believe we could do better. This doesn't really help either team, IMO.

Did Hedman retire or something?

Seems Carle and Hedman have left the org if you think MDZ-Salo would be their top pair.

Another poorly thought out proposal.
It's poor proposals like these that give the wrong impression Ranger fans want to dump Del Zotto at any any price.

Del Zotto for this????

You've gotta be kidding. In no such way does this make our club better.

Yikes, even I think that's bad for Tampa. Biron and Pyatt are valueless to TBL.

Connolly is a RW not a LW, Biron is not an upgrade on Lindback, Pyatt has no value and is of no need. If we traded Connolly it's hopefully for a RHD who's more defensive minded. I also feel that Koekkoek will be better then Del Zotto is now in 3 years so rather hold onto him. The only Ranger D that would make sense for us would be Girardi as he'd be a great partner for Hedman. McIllrath also interests me but not sure what he'd cost.

What would you give for Girardi? Would something around Girardi and Purcell work?

I'd do that in a heartbeat but I'm sure most Rangers fans will feel we need to add. I don't think we'd have to add a lot, not sure what you need in prospects or prefer a mid round pick.

I'll tell Hedman the bad news. Leaving value completely out of the equation it still makes zero sense for the Lightning.

Please, if you could get that return for MDZ you'd be silly not to.

Right. A win now team should definitely trade one of it's top-4 defensemen- one that could play top-2 minutes on most teams in the league and as such can play top-2 more than comfortably on the Rangers in case of injury, for a couple of prospects.

Makes perfect sense!

Is this a troll thread? Or do people actually think this is a fair deal? No way Yzerman trades for a backup when we have Lindback/ Bishop battling it out, what was the thought process of us wanting a backup goaltender? That we are one backup away from competing?

Or we'd trade one of our top defensive prospects for MDZ? A PMD who we have no real need for?

No GM would be dumb enough to even offer this insulting package for Connolly and K to Yzerman
