What Trade Assets do the New York Rangers Have

The New York Rangers don’t have any highly touted prospects to deal for an NHL roster player

Currently JT Miller, Jesper Fast, and Oscar Lindberg are his best young prospects. While those three players may help the New York Rangers by playing somewhere in the lineup, they aren’t really tradable assets unless part of a packaged deal. He can’t afford to trade all three of them for one player. None of them have regularly cracked the NHL lineup yet. Anthony Duclair will get his first opportunity to show what he has this September in training camp. He has yet to even play professional hockey to date but Glen Sather is sure to use that as a talent showing to the rest of the General Mangers around the league.

One prospect the New York Rangers do have is a young defenseman ready to make the NHL in place of a bottom four defenseman

During last years camp a young undrafted defenseman Conner Allen out of Umass (Amherst) impressed many of the teams coaching staff and scouts. He was one of the final cuts before the season began and could replace a defenseman on either of the second or third pairing if needed. This is why trading Marc Staal wouldn’t create a hole elsewhere. Management might also be mulling over what to do with John Moore. He’s a great skater and has offensive potential and aside from the finals he was never terrible in his own end. With no arbitration rights, the New York Rangers aren’t in any rush to resign the restricted free agent. A one year contract would be best for the team to figure out if he will remain with the team.
