I think a lot of people are making a lot of sense in here. Dallas, not giving up Loui. Rags, not moving that many young pieces. It's too risky for both teams. Although I think the value is good, it's not a deal I could see go down.

You can't take the Neal situation and apply it to Eriksson. Jamie Benn made James Neal expendable. Our depth at wing was very deep so we traded (from a position of strength) our weakest link, Neal, for a PMD in Goligoski. Eriksson is our best player and we need top six forwards. Trading him now makes absolutely NO sense.

The only time fans thought James Neal would never be traded was during his rookie season.

I don't know, I might go as far to say Eriksson is the best player in the deal even with Richards in the equation.

The highest value, probably without much argument.

Again, as I posted on the Rangers board, the idea here was to get Ranger fans thinking that maybe a big move is in the works, especially with the recent acquisitions of Erixon and Lindberg. As a poster mentioned here about moving Neal, you deal from strength to address weakness. Well NY might have the deepest crop of defensive prospects in hockey, and lack top-line talent. Sure, Eriksson might not make sense because of the situation in Dallas, but NY has the pieces to make this kind of splash. And I'm asking the question, with the likelihood that we land Richards, is it time?

Is it time to trade Eriksson? Umm no.

It doesn't matter if you have the defensive pieces, the fact is that Dallas management has ZERO interest in trading their best player. If Joe doesn't want to trade Eriksson, then he's not trading Eriksson. The lack of defensive prospects is a concern, but it's not a glaring weakness. Dallas needed a PMD, and they got good one. Dallas' weakness is their lack of a #1 D-man, and the Rags are not about to give one up.

It seemed pretty clear to me that he was speaking in generalities about the Rangers.
"Sure, Eriksson might not make sense because of the situation in Dallas, but NY has the pieces to make this kind of splash. "

Is it time for this kind of splash? ie. Are we ready to be a contender yet or not?

Dallas just traded Neal, are about to loser Richards... and you think they're going to want to trade Louie now for a package of lesser pieces?

How bout no, Scotty D'oh?

Agree. Anisimov is a keeper in most scenarios, including this proposal
