Would you trade Poti for Sykora?Poti/Rucchin for Sykora/Salei?

Quote:
Arriving in Scottsdale today for an NHL Board of Governors meeting, the GM will have to decide whether to pull the trigger on a potential deal that would send Tom Poti to Anaheim for Petr Sykora
Quote:
Sources have told The Post the Rangers are loathe to move Poti- without getting a game-ready defenseman back from the Mighty Ducks as part of the package for Sykora
http://www.nypost.com/sports/rangers/58736.htm

Brooks wrote an Eastern conference exec told him it's his understanding Sather and Brian Burke have discussed expanding the deal to include Ruslan Salei with the Rangers sending another high salary player to Anaheim to balance out the money

Brooks speculated that player might be Steve Rucchin

Just get rid of Poti.Please

All four players will be unrestricted free agents this summer

IMO Salei and Sykora both would be upgrades at their positions. But I am still not sure id make the deal. I would rather add players that helped build the team and can help on the ice in all areas. Salei's physical presence would be a upgrade but he is still pretty unstable.

Take a kid like Matt Cooke for example, he was rumored to be on the block earlier. I think he would be a good fit with Nylander and Prucha. A fast reckless player who atleast have decent hands. I rather have Sather looking for long term solutions then quick fix.

Poti for Sykora straight up, yea.

I wouldn't add Rucchin to get Salei.

I think Poti for Sykora is a steal for the Rangers. I think Poti and Rucchin for Sykora and Salei is still in the Rangers favor. I believe that Rucchin, on this team with their style of play, is a replaceable part.

In a heartbeat. Salei would be a welcome addition to this soft defensive group and Sykora is a big improvement to whoever else we have playing 2nd line rw.

Poti for Sykora? No. That will just further complicate the forward situation. If Salei is to be included, then the move I would make would be Poti/Hossa/Neimo for Salei & Sykora.

Sykora has not impressed me this year at all. Salei played ok the other night in Toronto.

If I were the GM I would wait for something better. Trading Rucchin could really hurt the team in the chemistry and leadership dept. He's an important part of the mix whether he is lighting the lamp or not.

Rucchin's departure would open the door for Immonen, unless Renney intends to leave Straka at center. Where does Hossa end up with these roster changes?

IMO, that is a done deal if there is a shred of truth to it. Poti, even though he has come around, still falls far short of his role as an "offensive defenseman". Offensive, yes, but contributing in any way to the offensive output on the scoreboard, no. So if you add Salei, just the idea that he won't make the glaring blunders Poti does is like adding a goal a game. When you factor in that apparently Sykora can play the point on the PP, it's almost like you made a trade for a 2 way defenseman in terms of production. I think if this deal is offered, there's just no way you can let it pass.

Be careful what you wish for.

There is an intangible chemistry that cannot be measured with this team.

Don't like the latest Permuations of the deal...If Poti goes, we do indeed need another D-man back (the guys in Hartford aren't ready and, heck, even Tyutin is struggling), so I'm not crazy about a straight Poti-Sykora Swap..And if that's the deal, it only contributes to the forwad glut, although that is a minor consideration.....

Put Salei in the picture and there's the D-man we need back, but if the other player going to Anaheim is Rucchin, that leaves us VERY thin at C....Straka is already playing out of position and Immonen needs to stay in Hartford a little longer...Plus, Betts shoulder worries me as the play gets more physical....I'd probably make the Rucchin-Poti for Sykora-Salei deal, but it wouldn't be my first choice or second..

Would love if we could deal from where we have a little depth and dead wood (at Wing), but I guess nobody wants Nieminen or Hossa...And no way do you deal Hollweg the Hitting Machine...

maybe we can add the rights to Chistov, with us adding the rights to Rachunek or maybe Bryce Lampman. I dont wanna deal Lampman but he should be on this team.

Why would you want Chistov and where would he play? How many small Euro's can we fit on this roster. If I'm looking at a roster with Nylander, Straka, Prucha, and Chistov in their top 6 forwards, I'm not exactly shaking in my boots.

True, but I would not mind seeing him in training camp next year.

he is young and has potential. Maybe him and Fedorov can click since both are russians with Tyutin and Kondratiev.

I agree with the forward glut. However by subtracting Poti, a deserving Drats gets back into the lineup.
