    If we're talking Tkachuk or Eichel, there are no untouchable prospects except for Kakko.

    Think Gorton has the balls to go out and get both?

    Kreider goes for good prospect and a 1st this deadline

    Tkachuk comes in for Buchnevich, Miller, 1st from Kreider trade this deadline

    Eichel comes in for Skjei, Kravtsov, prospect from Kreider trade

    Lundqvist retires.

    Next year:

    Tkachuk-Zib-Kakko
    Panarin-Eichel-Strome
    Lemieux-Chytil-Gauthier
    DiGi-Howden-Vet UFA/Fast?

    DeAngelo-Trouba
    Lindgren-Fox
    Staal/Smith-Rykov/Vet UFA

    Igor
    Geo

    LFG.

    I have no interest in making a deal that would improve any of the teams we’re chasing. I’m not trading Georgiev to Carolina. I’m not trading Kreider to the Islanders.

    I don’t care if they offer the best return.

    I think this is spot on. Maybe there are things going on behind the scenes in Calgary that will influence them to move one of their more seemingly untouchable players (i.e, someone saying get me the f*** out of Calgary) but JG makes the most sense if they're considering moving a big name.

    Allows them to do a bit of a reset while keeping their core roster in tact.

    So the only substantive rumor so far today is that a Kreider self-rental is possible, which LOL.

    Considering Georgiev has arbitration rights, I'm wondering what $ he's going to get should he end up staying here. 2M?

    And then still having Zbad being the threat on the 2nd line. Not to mention having Kakko, Buch, and Chytil playing wings on those 2 lines. Getting Eichel would instantly make the rangers one of the most dangerous offensive teams in the league.

    I don't think so?

    Unless I missed it, All I've seen is Brooks write a captain obvious article about how they cant afford to do this. Freidman said that they won't be self renting him either.

    Crow- we could maybe afford one.

    You make both those trades and we've got 80% of the cap locked into the top two forward lines for the next 5 years. We need some of those cost controlled RFA players and prospects.

    Rangers can't keep Kreider as a "rental" it doesn't matter how good they've been playing. It wouldnt be smart to lose him for nothing.

    With the Rangers sending scouts to the Kings for back to back games I’m thinking maybe that is a destination for Lias Andersson. His pop is still a scout with the Kings.

    Kings have a lot of prospect depth, but if prospect for prospect why are the scouts watching the big club?

    Then again Vilardi played in both of those games as well.

    Something around Anderson and Vilardi? Both had their own separate issues during their developmental stages post draft. Maybe a small add to get it done?

    Eerily quiet with 28 hours to go. I think waiver wire might be interesting today, could set off a few moves. Totally my bored speculation though.

    They aren’t self renting CK nor should they. If they cant resign him then they must trade him even if it’s not a great return

    we probably have a scout at every game, it most likely means nothing

    It's tough, but I'd choose Eichel if I had to pick.

    Werent the Kings planning on drafting him in 2017? Obviously things change as the draft goes on but that was around the spot he was projected

    Part of the reason I’m in favor of trading Kreider is 1) the cap space it would provide and 2) it gives Gorton more pieces to make a big splash this offseason again

    I think if there’s a deal to be made with the Kings, it would be for Kupari who is having a somewhat rough go of it in the AHL this year.

    #2 is a good point, you never know who becomes available. having 2 1sts + good prospects could put the Rangers in a position of strength if someone becomes available.

    If we could get Eichel for Skjei, Kravtsov, and a solid prospect I'd so that every day, but it seems light for a 23 year old franchise center.

    That's less than we traded for Rick Nash.

    Could be. Also they may have been there to watch Jost and Kaut for the Avs before the deadline.

    The likelihood of the Rangers making a "big splash" that effectively either replaces Kreider or exceeds him is probably pretty low.

    Not against trading him, but I don't think he's easily replaced and, if that's the goal, then they should just sign him.

    Buffalo would be run out of town by the seven fans they have left.
