I doubt RNH and Hamilton sign multi year deals with the worse team in the league. Maybe 1 year as prove it deals but I don't see them needing them

I agree. Rangers are a much better fit than the Devils. But I don't think the Sabres would do that trade. They probably want picks so swap Strome with a first and second round pick

Prob not very realistic on that front, mostly went about that by offering them more money than they would be able to get elsewhere but still not likely

Your offer is seems very realistic and better than every Rangers fans offers

Eichel is a borderline top 5 NHL center, you dont get that for scraps

They just traded up for Schneider in the draft , he's the type of the defenseman they don't have in the system, a comparable would be Ryan Pulock from the NYI but maybe a bit meaner.

Rangers don't need Eichel. Strome is playing perfectly behind Zibenejad. Our Top 2 are perfect at the moment.

No need to give away assets for something that isn't a position of need, at the moment.

Take out Kakko, add a 1st and I guess I'd do it. Still seems like an over-payment.

Schneider is probably a year away for being an NHL regular, Hartford is probably where he starts (with Matthew Robertson on his left)
Lundqvist hasn't signed that ELC yet (hell he might not sign to get out of going to Buffalo! ) & if Gorton is trading Lundqvist, he's not giving up Kakko too.
Get a look at Lundkqvist with the big club. Good problems to have.
