A Trade Likely

In his piece in Newsday on tough roster decisions the Rangers will have make this weekend, Steve Zipay says that "With an excess of players with NHL experience, a trade seems likely."

...wonder which players other teams might be interested in? Kennedy? Christensen? Gilroy?

...and if the issue the Rangers have is a glut of third line players, what would they want in return? I guess draft picks.

Zipay also points out that Christensen needs to raise his game.

...EC was a player I had penciled in centering Gaborik this year, but he has been a no-show at camp so far and with Stepan impressing may find himself in the press box or being traded.

Kevin are you truly being serious about EC centering the 1st. line, lets call a spade a spade the guy is a marginal NHL player & certainly not any teams #1 pivot.

I thought he had nice chemistry with Gaborik last season and proved he was a play maker.

But just b/c I had him penciled in as the Rangers #1 center doesn't mean he would be the #1 center somewhere else.

Just shows the lack of real depth at the position. Our only hope is that Stepan is the real deal.

If stepan cant handle the work load its gona go back to line jumping like last season. But I definitely see stepan on opening night in the line up since dry is out. But m all for trading most of our third and fourth liners for a draft pick in any round
