    Mad about it being Rykov as I thought he was our best D prospect.

    Well I hope everyone that was BEGGING for Shero to make a trade with the Rangers is happy cause it seems like a lot for a rental. And I figured it would take a lot for them to sell to us.

    Rykov? What the hell?

    Grabner is a good player and fits a need. But to include Rykov too. Wow

    I could be forgetting something recent, but have we ever traded with the Rangers before?

    That’s the solace I guess. He’s signed until 2019 right?

    I guess we'll be dipping into UFA for defense the next few years.

    All in all, not a terrible price.

    You guys will love Grabner. Goal scorer, elite skating and elite PK.

    Nada. And fwiw I'm fine with the 2 I guess...I'd rather have shopped for more of a depth guy but **** it. Rykov stings if he ever comes over, but you never know with KHL'ers.

    I suppose that means they like zaitsev and were willing to part ways with rykov. Can't say I have really seen rykov, but seemed like a promising prospect. Definitely not a cheap price, but I would say a fair one - hopefully rykov doesn't turn into a stud. Welcome aboard, grabner.

    I dislike this trade. It obviously helps now but Rykov seemed like a find.

    I’m still more in absolute awe we traded with the Rangers. Shocked.

    Of course not, Rykov is the next Karlsson and we handed them a future HOF with the 2nd.

    I’m not really mad about the second because I think he’s likely worth that. Rykov was just a guy I really liked from WJC and reports. I am glad we did something though. Team needed scoring and he fits the identity to a T.

    ENG scorer. Inflated totals.

    What wing does he play?

    I've wanted the Gremlin for years. He fits in well. Vatanen and Butcher will thrive hitting him with stretch passes.

    You have to be thinking of resigning him right? He is 30 currently. Would he take a 3 year deal?
