I have to believe there will be some house cleaning on the defense by the trade deadline.

Smith, McDonagh, Holden. The best deal for McDonagh is now. Smith is brain dead, there is no way defensively, that Pionk, Gilmour and Graves can make as many mental mistakes as he does. I don't care who's coaching, he is a guy who does it his way. Everything I read about his Detroit game has come full circle and its all bad. He is what he is cut the cord, pucks, sticks, tape anything back you can get, move him.
At some point in time you'd think the idiot behind the bench would realize the Rangers are defensively challenged and dial back his defensemen's puck moving options, to a safe strategy, but nope let them run wild. Get rid of him to.

I agree with Rranger here. However, it's classic AV to bring another small, non-physical defenseman up like Pionk and screw the stay at home, physical defenseman like Graves over. All the more reason I feel confident he will be canned by the end of the season.

That being said. Pionk and Gilmour also deserved the call. I pray Pionk can turn into a Stralman type. Stralman was thought of as garbage until the Rangers developed him.
