Too see who each player is, highlight the name after the colon below. Would you change your answer? Are you surprised?
Player A is: Mats Sundin
Player B is: Brendan Shanahan
Sundin wouldn't be the worst thing to happen to this team if the price was right, but we can't afford him. He'd give one of our sets of top 4 wings someone with great size and good hands near the net. He'd really help our powerplay out too.
Sundin is 38 and still a decent player (28 points in 41 games last year) but regardless how cheap he would be I dont want him on Rangers. Where would he play? On 1st line with Gabby? Too slow. Plus what happens to AA since we would then effectively have Sundin, Drury and Dubi at C. I know Drury could move on the wing but we already have enough of them whether Zherdev comes back or not.
