While the Rangers are monitoring the Pierre-Luc Dubois situation in Columbus, the cost for acquiring him would be high says Larry Brooks in theNew York Post.

He suggests it'll take someone like Kaapo Kakko, Alexis Lafreniere or K'Andre Miller...plus.

Valetenko is NHL ready

Stamkos, Richards, or PM Bouchard?
Posted by Michael M. Ramos ≡ 9:45:07 PM - December 8, 2010

In the world of blogs and organizational information leaks, the Rangers hunt for a #1 center seems to be getting closer and closer. Within the Rangers system, alot of prospects belonging to the Rangers are up for new contracts as RFA's. Sather knows that he has to make a move one way or anotheras at least Kreider and Hagelin will need NHL level contracts and the Rangers will have to move some or just not tender some of the current prospects that are going to hit RFA this summer. Adding this knowledge with the fact that the Rangers don't have a legit #1 center in the system, it would seem that the Rangers will be looking to trade current prospects for the chance at Richards, Stamkos, and/or PM Bouchard.
On defense the Rangers have current core in Staal,Girardi,DelZotto,Sauer, and a plethera of prospects ready to take a regular shot at the NHL in Gilroy,Valentenko,McDonagh,Kundratek,and Baldwin. Add to that future options in Pashin(coming over from Russia this summer), Maggio, and McIlrath that means 12 players for 7 spots within the next few years. The Rangers have lacked for years in defensemen that were tough and able to clear the front of their goalies crease. Now it would seem Sauer,Valentenko,Kundratek,Maggio, and this years #1 draft choice McIlrath all fit that mold. When dealing for players, it would make sense for the Rangers to deal from their strength which at this time is defensemen.
At forward, the Rangers again have seemed to draft and sign prospects of the same size and skill level. This offseason, the signed free agent Norweigan Hobbit Zuccarello who is of the Brian Gionta mold. Along this type of player is fellow prospects Borque,Thomas, and Hagelin. The Rangers don't seem to have the plan to go back to the 80's version of the SMURFS so the 4 players seem to be playing for maybe 2 spots. At this point, Werek, Stepan, and Grachev seem to be the best future options for the #1 or #2 center positionswithin the sytem.
Expect the Lightning to start making an offer to Stamkos on an extension. If they can not agree on an extension look for him to hit the trade block and bring in more than what Kovulchuk did last year. Stamkos is only 20 and laready a top 5 in his position if not top 5 player in the league. If he was to make it to RFA, he would easily bring in 4 #1 picks as he will easily sign for over 6 mil per. Tampa would be better off making a trade than to wait and get the 4 #1 picks. Tampa won't be able to match a very large offer as they already have Vinny L and St. Loius to very large contracts and cap issues. This would be the Rangers fans (along with his best friend DelZotto's) choice. It will cost the Rangers alot, but it would be well worth it.

Coach Torts is asking for Brad Richards who will hit the market once Dallas finally has it's financial budget in order. Richards is a very experienced scorer and 10 years older than Stamkos which would make the trade alittle easier on the Rangers. Both Stamkos and Richards would cost the Rangers anywhere from $7.5 t $8 mil per. Richards played for Torts in Tampa Bay and would immediatley fit into the Rangers system.

Gaborik is asking for the Rangers to try and bring PM Bouchard whom he played with in Minnesota and already had chemistry with in the past. The biggest problem with this move would be that PMB missed 79 games last year with a concussion. Of course this would be the easiest trade but also most risk involved. He is under contract at $4 mil per for something like 2 more years.

If I were a GM from Tampa Bay (which is NHL vet Stevie Y), I would rebuild my team with a demand of Valentenko(will be a top 4 dman with a blast from a point),Gilroy(a puck moving dman),Anisimov(a #2 center),and Werek(a future scoring center). The other offers for Richards and PM Bouchard will of course cost much less.

The Rangers have alot of prospects that are reaching RFA and Sather has to resign them or cut some loose with players such as Kreider and Hagelin(among others) that will need to be signed to NHL contracts, which each NHL team is allowed only 50. Sather will have alot to think about going forward from here to this offseason.
