Which "free" acquistion would you take?

I noticed the Rangers' two biggest needs are a Top 6/9 forward that can drop the gloves and contribute offensively (preferably a LW) and a RH PPQB. I feel Lucic and Letang epitomize those two needs the best, while being fairly close in value. By free I mean no assets are given up and cap hits are not a factor.

I'd do Richards straight up for either.

Lucic. Letang is god awful at defense and no matter how good he is offensively, it won't make up for it.

Seems to be a landslide so far. I thought it would be closer. Who would be a better option than Letang? Karlsson? Subban? Green? Doughty?

Yes, I think all those guys would get more votes than Letang.

We have been DYING for an good PP QB for years and years, and we have the chance to get a ELITE PP QB, a Norris Trophy nominee and people are passing it up for a good 2nd liner? Sure he plays an great style of hockey but c'on, Letang is on another level in terms of everything.

Stunned.

Okay, so I like Lucic a lot, and I'm not a big fan of Letang. Never have been.

But you a guys are comparing a Norris trophy finalist to a 60 point power forward. Let's keep that in mind. It's a lot closer than the poll indicates.

Put Letang on the Rangers and I have serious doubts he is a Norris trophy finalist.

Letang, easily. Lucic is a 60 point PF. Letang is a Norris-trophy finalist.

And I'm a Lucic fan and a Letang "hater".

You put this to a league vote and I imagine Letang wins.

This is more or less my take on the situation, as well.

You consider that the Rangers haven't had a dman score 50 points in a season since Leetch, coincidentally not having a good PP in all that time, and it outweighs the novelty of a big, angry forward.

Letang. We need an offensive D man. I don't think you could go wrong with either answer.

Lucic. Not close

We have 4 D capable of 30-40 points.

We have NO ONE like lucic

Easy choice for me. Lucic. AINEC

That said Letang is the better player.

I'd go with Lucic. I'm a big fan. Soon as McIlrath showed up--teams would really begin to hate us. We'd be kicking ass and taking names.

Lucic would bring another element to this team. He would balance out our lineup and give us a very strong top 9.

Lucic Stepan Nash
Hagelin Brassard Callahan
Kreider Richards Pouliot
Boyle Moore Dorsett

Sweet Jesus. And if Richards can pull his head out of his arse... God damn that lineup is scary.

My original instinct was to go with a better player in Letang. But in the contexts of this team which is already pretty good albeit without an offensive weapon like Letang. Lucic on the other hand addresses this team's need. So Lucic is it for me.
