Darren Dreger and others are reporting that Gorton will keep Georgiev and not trade him unless the Rangers get a player like Kapanen and a high draft pick. So you're saying Kreider is not worth a 2nd round pick ? Kreider will get a 1st round pick and a prospect from a contending team, which I question Toronto being. For the poster (Vosse9) to propose a trade of Kreider and Georgiev for Kapanen and two 2nd round picks is simply not realistic. So when you comment, "Kreider is hardly a difference maker to give up all of that." All what? A 2nd round pick? If you believe Kreider is not worth a 2nd round pick than you are a completely ignorant of his talents.</div></div>

I'm not ignorant of his talents, but Leafs believe they have adequate and good wingers, so Leafs aren't that interested in Kreider. Other holes to fill Now I don't think Rangers should even trade Georgiev till the summer at the earliest till they know how they are going to handle their three goalie situation. But don't be so naive to believe what Dreger or Gorton says to the press. If Rangers decide that Georgiev is the goalies to be traded, they will get a good offer from some team. It should may/may not be as much as what the Rangers want to leaks to the press, but if a FANatic wants to believe what his teams GM apparently says...so be it.
