Tyler Kluepfel: Sergey Zborovskiy for Jonathan Marchessault

The Rangers find themselves one quality center away from realistically contending for the Stanley Cup. There are not many great options available for cheap on the market, but there is one team overloaded with centers. That would the Vegas Golden Knights.

Vegas have eleven centers under contract, with seven on the current roster. George McPhee has already traded away one center, that being Marcus Kruger for simply a 5th round pick. Marchessault has one year remaining on his contract after scoring 30 goals last season for the Florida Panthers.

The Rangers are now, believe it or not, overloaded with defensemen. Zborovskiy finds himself far below the Rangers depth chart currently thanks to new additions like Neal Pionk and Alexei Bereglazov. Vegas is in need of defensive prospects. Vegas has only one defenseman under contract that is under 21 years of age. Zborovskiy, 20, may be enticing to a team in this situation.

In conclusion, the Rangers need a center and the Golden Knights need young defensemen. It would be at least worth a proposal.
