In some ways, their excellence this season makes it harder for them to answer the two key questions for any team at any trade deadline: Should we make a move, and if so, what move should we make?Sielski says that Mike Milbury thinks the Rangers should look to acquire another goal scorer as long as it doesn't come at the cost of one of the good young players.
Stu Hackel wrote at SI Red Light that the Rangers should look to add a tough veteran scorer, like Ryan Smyth, and while it would be a mistake to tamper with the chemistry, he says that the Rangers have a lot of prospects they could deal.

Scoring forward is clearly the biggest target for the Rangers as getting someone to play on the left side of Brad Richards and Ryan Callahan would give the team two solid scoring lines and move Carl Hagelin down to create a ruckus in the bottom six. I do wonder if the team will look at acquiring at depth defenseman as insurance if Michael Sauer can't come back. If someone goes down with an injury then Stu Bickel is in, and I don't know that John Tortorella will trust him in a playoff game.
