    Lol, No serious person would ever make that deal, but I remain curious.

    Do you think Reeves could be an asset to this team or not?

    Defending Chytil is fine. He's an asset we should hang onto at almost all costs.

    But I'm still curious. Do you think Reeves would be a good asset for the Rangers?

    The last time I actually watched him play more than just at a glance was the Vegas - Capitals final, but I guess he could be an asset on the 4th line/as a 13th forward. His cap hit for the next season is a tad too high, but nothing our cap space and Dolan's wallet couldn't handle.

    @Machinehead made a "value of Hertl" thread on the trade board. Someone said Chytil + 1st + something else. I looked up Hertl, and he Chytil had similar stats in his 3rd season. Hell, even his 5th season. If you take out his rookie year that was an outlier, considering his next 4 seasons weren't even close to that PPG average, Hertl's 2-5 season he would have 36 points per 82 and Chytil's career is 31 per 82. Yet we can't wait to get rid of Chytil.

    You're not wrong. The only thing is, Hertl won 56% of his faceoffs his first year in the NHL. Chytil was sub-40% this past year. I don't care if you're not great at faceoffs but 38, 39% is a problem.

    The Rangers either need to commit to him at wing or teach him faceoffs.

    Faceoffs are more of a learned skill at the NHL level. Younger players are usually working on so many other parts of their game that they might not have the time to spend on faceoffs. Hertl seems to be an exception. Look at Jordan Staal for an example:

    Jordan Staal Stats and News

    37% in his rookie season, then 4 more years below 50%, then two years around 50-51%, and then his percentage takes off.

    Honestly, I don't know why Chytil's faceoffs would be a point of focus when Zibanejad, Strome, and Rooney all declined significantly in faceoff percentage from the previous year and took more faceoffs. Zibanejad in particular has shown a steep decline. He won 52% of his faceoffs in his first year as a Ranger and has declined every season since then.

    Mika Zibanejad Stats and News

    They all need to improve and I'm looking at the veterans to lead on that.
