No way NYR is looking for that kind of term & dollars for Kreider, nor should they. He'll get a below market offer to stay a Ranger, between now & the deadline. (5 years 6.5 million) If he balks he gets moved at the deadline.
I think the Andersson /Puljujarvi shipped has sailed, rumor has it that was already offered when Andersson was still playing with he organization & Holland (EDM) said no.
Andersson is more than likely dealt as part of a package, either with Kreider, DeAneglo or least likely Skjei.
Strome is arbitration eligible & has chemistry with the teams best player, so unless someone wants to really overpay, i don't see him being moved. DS can take a 2 year bridge deal (4-4.5) & become a UFA in in 2 years. or got to arbitration, get a 1 year deal & can be moved next year.
DeAngleo is playing so well on the offensive side,he could be pricing himself out of NY, with all the back end prospects NYR has in the system. Again TDA is arbitration eligible so he can get a 1or 2 year payday based on his play this year & still be RFA for NYR at the conclusion of that contract, a 4-5 year deal at 4.5-5.5 is more a likely the term & dollars that will get him to sign a long deal. So NYR may sell high at the deadline or the 2020 draft.
Would not be surprised if K'Andre miller signs his ELC after his season at Wisconsin. Wouldn't be upset if he stayed for his JR season.
I think Robertson plays another year or 2 in the CHL, hes only 18 (19 in March) & he's playing big minutes with the OIL KINGS in the WHL & his contract can slide a year, to not speed up all the kids reacquiring new deals at the same time. There are other LDs in the system (Miller, Rykov, REUNANEN ) to get looks until hes ready to make the jump to the pros.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Bcarlo25</b></div><div>I mean, you’re trading a rental and a cap dump for pk subban. Other teams will offer more. I feel like Toronto would offer Nylander, Zaitsev, and significant assets</div></div>
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Shakabakes</b></div><div>I felt the same way. But looking at some of the proposals, they are almost treating Subban as a Cap dump. Maybe it's just reactionary after getting eliminated. Figured I would go small and add on from there.</div></div>

First things first.. Chris Kreider..no one should be referring to him as "just a rental", when next to Mika Zibanejad, he was the Rangers' best player. And since a number of these proposals have been about prying Kreider away, you cannot have your "rental" cake, and eat it, too.
The Rangers have cap room to fit a P.K. Subban without having to necessarily make a player swap to strike a deal. Nashville may want multiple assets or may want a cap dump in this case.
Honestly, it seems like more of a deal where Nashville will take help on their left wing (think Vesey, Namestnikov) at less cap cost, than taking more cap, even for one to two seasons.
Right now, Toronto is in a cap crunch; while they might want a Subban, giving Matthews and Tavares before him each $11+ million and Nylander a bonus ladened contract is giving them a fit, with them being to lock up so many others. Adding Subban would not be smart, even if Nashville ate 50% of the cap hit.
The Rangers face a roster crunch, as the kids are coming. The forwards in particular are going to get better quickly; Chytil, Andersson, Howden, Lemieux, Buchnevich..under the leadership of Zibanejad and Kreider: not to mention Kratsov, and either of Kakko or Hughes--that is nine forwards I've named. Strome makes ten. And, if Smith isn't moved, that's eleven.
Vesey, Namestnikov and, oh, by the way, Fast; which means 14.
My point is, reassess your look at the Rangers' roster, and try again.
