That's one of the worst Ranger trades I have seen in quite some time.

We loved Zuccarello. But going out now to acquire another Winger (where all we already have is depth on the Wings) who was already undersized, but now also older and more beaten up.

And in doing so, we not only give up one of our Top Trade chips in Strome, but arguably our best Defensive Prospect?

Not good.

Literally this. We counter offer with Dahlin at 50% retained, Turcotte and your next 5 1st round picks for a slice of pizza.

Despite its issues, I love seeing proposals like this that are creative and original. Much more entertaining than the usual packages. Kudos on thinking through a possible Zucc hypothetical, since MIN would obviously prefer losing him vs Fiala.

Still no need for Zuccarello at this point in time.

Zuccarello has a no trade, or movement clause, so he's not waiving to go back to rangers or especially Buffalo

Because he spoke of the disrespect they gave him before he was traded
