Through three parts of the series we’ve explored two different options in addressing the Rangers scoring woes, either signing UFA Ray Whitney (Part I) or dealing for Anaheim LW Bobby Ryan (Part II). Part III dealt with the aftermath of the hypothetical Ryan acquisition and the sudden vacancy created for a 3rd line RW. If [...]
In the last installment we completed a hypothetical trade to bring LW Bobby Ryan to Manhattan. The deal created openings on the blue line, at RW and perhaps even for a 4th line center assuming we conclude John Mitchell is better suited as the 13th forward on the roster.

If you were the GM of the New York Rangers who would you bank your hopes on? Give us your answer and let us know why in the comments field below.

UPDATE (8:54pm est): … still not reading into anything until I see the Ducks are keeping Ryan OR another team acquires him. ORIGINAL POST: …. This would be something. Bobby Ryan is a very special player and in my eyes a HUGE upgrade over Brandon Dubinsky and others on the roster. Anytime you have a [...]
… You are right Henrik, it was very intense… at least from what we saw on TV. Can’t wait to see the Rangers back in the states, more relaxed and better rested.
