<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Canucks33</b></div><div>I don't think we should sell off to this degree. Miller should be our one big move with maybe something minor like Halak. Otherwise keep everyone else and give them an opportunity to build on what they've done in Vancouver with a new coach and a fresh season with a different outlook.

I don't think we should trade Boeser at all. Goal scorers are hard to find, he's tight with our core and he's been one of our better forwards the last two years. I know the contract starting at 7.5M is concerning for a lot of people but that is the going rate for players of his caliber. We're not going to find better use for that money and if we move him we won't be able to replace him for a long time. His wrist is finally holding up and he's gotten past some rough stretches in his personal life, I think we should commit to keeping him here with his friends and allowing him to grow as an original member of our core.</div></div>

The concerns that he's gotten over that you mention are exactly why I'm concerned. He is seemingly in the best spit health wise and mentally of his career and this has been one of if not his worst years of performances. I totally get your sentiment and last year he looked back to his rookie self but I just don't know anymore. He's turned from a sure 40 goal scorer into a huge risk with defensive liability and I don't know what to do with him anymore. In my mind Tomasino and Svechkov are really great prospects not to mention that's a huge chunk of cap to commit to a less risky asset

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Fotiu4U</b></div><div>I don't expect the Rangers to win a cup this year since they have been rebuilding for years now, so I would not sacrifice young players like Schneider who are the future to try to win a few more playoff games. 99% of Ranger fans would have said prior to the season that just making the playoffs would be a success, so I see no reason to increase that expectation now. I am fine with them being buyers at the TDL, but not if that means sacrificing what looks to be a very bright future. Schneider, Laffy, Kakko, Shesty and Miller are simply not available. Nils Lundqvist and Zac Jones are though, along with Kravstov and the 1st round pick, so there are pieces they can move to improve the top 6. If Vancouver can live with Lundqvist, Kravstov and 1st round pick, then they can get younger and better IMO, but if they are stuck on Schneider, then there is no trade to be made. Rangers can go after Smith in Vegas or Kessel or Tofoli to help their top 6 and keep all their top prospects.</div></div>

OK now non sarcastically thank you for the input, I agree with you 100%. If I were a Rangers fan I think I'd be completely in line with your thinking. I think the conversation changed more when Schneider stepped in to replace Fox and looks an absolute stud already. The only issues with your proposal for me are #1 Kravtsov, just, Kravtsov being an issue himself. #2 we have OEL, Hughes, Rathbone already so to add Lundqvist is a bit redundant. Let's say Chytil, Lundqvist and a first? I personally do like Nils alot (maybe more than Schneider as a matter of personal taste). We also need warm bodies on the team if we trade Miller.
