<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>HOCKEYBOY448</b></div><div>This is my point exactly. Don’t think short term. If it was for a young cheap center I could certainly get behind making a big deal. But the idea of trading multiple young assets for guys close to 30 and making the team older completely defeats the purpose of this so called rebuild. At that rate if that’s the strategy, may as well trade Kakko, Schneider, Laf, Chytil, Kravtsov, Lundkvist, Jones and Othmann and 2-3 1sts and just go all in this year and next year. After that we’d just be a middling team with nothing in the development system.</div></div>

Apologies, but struggling to see what I offered that would be considered "precious" for NYR. I think it's more than realistic that for the next 4 years the right side of the defense will be Fox Trouba and Schneider (assuming Schneider is bridged), so moving Skinner is not going to ruin the farm. Skinner is already 22 and every year where he sits in the AHL his value declines. I think he's a good asset but realistically he's not going to be a staple in the NYR lineup and I don't think you're getting stand-alone value for him, so moving him along with a contract you want to be rid of is a solid move. By the time Skinner would get a substantial opportunity, he'll be 26 and 1 year away from UFA where he'll likely walk. Additionally, NYR can afford to move one (NOT BOTH) of the second rounders they have in this draft; looking long-term, regardless of whether the pick is a forward or defenseman, he will probably not be able to crack the lineup (he's going to compete with all the young players currently on the roster, the other early picks from this year, and also the likes of Othmann, Cullye, Robertson and Lundkvist, just to name a few). And you could argue that whoever that pick becomes has value, but again, you run into that same problem where he'll sit in the AHL and his stock will depreciate if he doesn't crack the lineup.

We can agree to disagree what the cost of moving Nemeth would be, but I'm basing it off of precedent (which is usually how GMs operate) so see the Staal trade to DET and I think you can see that it comports with this offer.

Can you list some names of top 6-top 9 ELC centers that teams are willing to move? That NYR will be able to afford in the next couple of years? I think NYR are going to extend Strome in any event.

I think you're 100% right when you stated above that players that have high salaries with term currently in the league are players NYR should avoid, because it creates a cap crisis in the near future and possibly down the road, too. But I think getting veterans on expiring contracts is sending a message to the players in the locker room that you are are investing them and want to create a winning culture. I think so long as you keep this year's first rounder and one of the second rounders, you can spend some of the assets you've accumulated (that's the point of rebuilding and accumulating assets in the first place!).

And lastly, it's possible (but I'll admit unlikely) that when you bring in some older veterans that can still play (like a Giordano or a Pavelski) that they may believe that signing with NYR on cheaper 1 year deals next year could be their best chance to win a cup, so bringing them in and giving them every opportunity to "drink the cool-aid" might give you another year of them.

I understand that giving up assets for rentals is risky, but NYR have put themselves in a position to take risks; otherwise you end up like the Kings with a bunch of good prospects that will depreciate in the AHL because there are log jams across the roster.
