Yep. Thats a return the adams and pegula can say is a win. Pieces with value, quality of quantity. Plus, the players are probably graduated from being prospects, so the timeline is nice.

Trade is good for both sides this season but the Rangers will be hard pressed to sign all their players the season after with Kakko, Zibanejad and Fox needing contracts.

For cap reasons alone I’d say no. Those are 3 cheap assets who even if we kept would still give us a tough time to sign everyone. Trading them for Eichel makes it damn impossible to sign Fox, Kakko, Mika and then Laf and Miller the year after.

A cap dump can certainly be added, but there's not much on the nyr roster that is considered a dump

This is Eichel's value...IF he weren't injured and wanting off the ship. Rangers have no reason to take on all that risk and send this type of package over to Buffalo when they are in an untenable situation.

Can we honestly say Eichel is going to play for Buffalo next season? I can't see it at this point...it would be a giant $H!T show!

If they are insistent on not moving him for less, then he's going to sit out. What's that going to do for his trade value?

Why would the Rangers, or any team, give up this kind of haul for an injured player with a lot of risk who is likely to sit out until he is moved?

Remove Kravtsov, Remove Schneider, install Zach Jones, include 2022 2nd (Rangers have 2, take your pick), include Strome to balance money at least for a season..that's about it.

And then the Rangers get to enjoy some cap headaches moving forward.

If the Rangers were interested in offering more, the deal would have been done already.

That is 100% not the value of a healthy Eichel. A healthy Eichel to NYR does not get done without 1 of Laf, Kakko, Miller, ++++.

However, I am not against Chytil, Strome, Schnieder, and a 1st. BUF has 0 use for another LHD prospect unless they plan on trading them.

Kreider in place of Kravstov or Trouba in place of Schneider, but neither would waive.
