Core Players?

Who do you think are vital to NYR's success moving forward? If we were to go into a rebuild who would you keep?

McD, Kreider, Zucc, Stepan, Hank. I would even trade Hank if we could get a king's ransom for him. The package would have to include an top goalie prospect of course.

Young forwards that are "keepers":

Stepan, Kreider

McDonagh:

McDonagh

Valuable players you can't trade anyway:

Lundqvist, Nash

Fringe (players I'd be willing to trade for an overpayment)

Hagelin, Zuke, Miller, McIlrath, Talbot, Allen, Kristo, Fast, Lindberg, Skjei*, Duclair*, Buchnevich*

*Prospects that aren't ready


Keepable but not core:

Brassard (2nd-3rd line), Dorsett (4th), Boyle (4th), D. Moore (4th), Pouliot (2-3rd), Lindberg (4th line C), J. Moore(bottom pairing LHD), Del Zotto (2nd pairing LHD), Stralman (2nd pairing RHD), Falk (7th D), Staal (2nd pairing LHD)


So, to recap, 5 guys I'd consider the "core". Lundqvist and Nash are by proxy, they wouldn't bring back equal value to this team in a trade. 12 names I'd prefer to keep but wouldn't mind using to acquire a star.

Girardi, McD, Strålman, Zucc, Kreider and Brassard.

Girardi, McD and Strålman are solid Ds. Just look at Maple leafs and their defense. We must not end up like them. We cant replace them.

Zucc and Brassard got Magic hans.

Kreider is the New franchise player. He is fast, strong, skilled With puck and With some more exp he will be one of the best in the League.

Well its hard to say. Talbot has been awesome, but some goalies start well and then start sucking. How well will Talbot play in the playoffs? Is he a New Tim Thomas or Fleury.

Amazing how quickly the board has moved on from Ryan Callahan.

i love cally's heart/toughness but i dont think he has much skill to be a consistent top 6 player. i think 2011-12 was a career year. I am starting to have my doubts on stepan too

And how quickly they'll move back.

U need players like Callahan if u wanna win the cup. I didnt vote for him, because of his injuries. Same With staal. When healthy both of them are core players, but we should trade em before they end up like Sauer and Gabby

I don't think it's as simple as keep/don't keep in two categories.

Give me your first born child and your first in 2015 and I'll consider trading them:

Chris Kreider
Ryan McDonagh

Requires significant overpayment to acquire:

Mats Zuccarello
Derek Stepan
Carl Hagelin
Henrik Lundqvist
Cam Talbot
JT Miller

Would prefer to keep, but would move in the right deal:

Rick Nash
Anton Stralman
John Moore
Derek Brassard
Derek Dorsett
Dylan McIlrath

Should be actively marketed:

Benoit Pouliot (although honestly I wouldn't mind keeping him - the resurgence has been fun)
Brian Boyle
Dan Girardi
Michael Del Zotto
Ryan Callahan
Dom Moore
Marc Staal

Doesn't really matter either way:

Justin Falk

Was 2013 a career year too?

If we're going full re-build mode, then keep McDonagh, Kreider, Stepan, Talbot, and Callahan (for some kind of veteran presence, of course). Move the rest.

Not sure how Cally is not considered a key piece. He's been hurt this yr but is the heart if the team. Also Nash is a top player in the league just having a bad first half
