Okay, so I'm here to talk with Blackhawks about a trade I like as a Ranger fan and was wondering if you could see it happening or want it to happen. If not, what could you do to make it a deal. Serious suggestions, I mean look at the numbers.
Rangers trade Brandon Dubinsky and Artem Anisimov
Chicago trades Viktor Stalberg and either a 2nd Round pick in 2014 or 2015 or a 3rd rounder.
Keep in mind, Anisimov is only 23 and still has some upside. However, I as a Rangers fan would like to see him go in this deal because Stalberg is cheaper and puts up good numbers for little ice time. Dubinsky just had an off-year but he was a consistent 20+ goal scorer and does everything else in the game very well. Wins faceoffs, kills penalties, fights in the boards. But I would like to see him go simply because we have young kids like Kreider and Hagelin to play on the 2nd line and I'd like to loosen up some cap space to throw some more money at Parise. Again, just looking for some feedback. And I wanted to hear it from some true Blackhawks fans.
Dubinsky actually won about 52& of his faceoffs putting him in the top 20 in centers that took over about 300 faceoffs. And I agree with what most of you said the Rangers would most likely never do it. But I think it helps us out in insane amounts. I would rather include a 3rd team that gives us a 2nd or 3rd rounder and they get Frolik. And yes Dubinsky is valued WAY too high in New York which is why I like this trade A LOT more, I feel like it's right in his value and I love what Stalberg brings without the salary risk. Plus it gives us cap room to get Zach Parise, Chris Kelly, and re-sign maybe one more player or just spend more on Parise. I know they would most likely never do this, but if there's a resounding support from Chicago fans then it's at least something for me to hope and root for
