As a Rangers fan I don't think they would do this, it's a decent proposition though. I personally love Fox and wouldn't want to see them give him up at this point. Reilly is great though and it would give a solid LD for Trouba. Not totally unreasonable. If anything, I wouldn't think Toronto is ready for this considering Fox has only played 1 year.

Fox is 22 and already a more complete player in one season than Reilly is with like 7 years in the league.

that would be a really bad trade for the rangers. and down the road a bad one for the leafs when Fox refused to re-sign with the team

Difference is when he pulled that move he had the option to leave college as a UFA. now that he's in the league, that stunt doesn't really fly because if he wants to play he can't really do anything.

I would say even if Fox would play in Toronto the Rangers shouldn't do this.

Fox drives maybe a tad less offense than Reilly does, and obviously scores less, but is a positive defensive player where Reilly is not.

Fox is making under a mill against the cap for the next two years, Reilly is making five million.

Fox is restricted at the end of his deal. Reilly is not.

The only thing it benefits the Rangers to do this for is shedding an RFA with performance bonuses which could help their cap situation NEXT year should they go over (which they likely will with all the players who have performance bonuses), but I think they should shed somewhere else rather than lose Fox. Whether that's a benefit to the Rangers rests on whether enough guys meet their performance bonuses that it goes five million, but there are other ways around it where they don't shed their super young talent. Trading DeAngelo/Smith/Buchnevich, or manipulating Lindgren/Kappo/Shesterkin/Lafreneiere's playing time so they don't meet their bonuses would be the smarter move (though kind of a dick thing to do to their young guys).

They wouldn't, but that's a separate point to what was being argued.

Fox is pretty much untouchable for now after his rookie season. Kid did everything asked and was getting better every game. exceeded even my most spectacular expectations. Teams just dont trade players like this after their rookie season at controlled 900k money... do they?
