Larry Brooks writes that Jeff Gorton should "drive a hard bargain" in regards to a potential deal for Ryan McDonagh. (NY Post)
He said that Gorton should "think big and go big" and if his price isn't matched he can revisit at the draft. (NY Post)
Brooks writes that while the Rangers may be willing to move McDonagh, "no one is giving away" the Rangers captain. (NY Post)
He lists potential options for McDonagh as Toronto, Boston or Tampa and notes that when the Rangers traded Brian Leetch in 2004 the return was a first, second and two prospects. (NY Post)
Darren Dreger was speaking about the Leafs on Tuesday morning and said "The question is, when it comes to McDonagh as an example, the assets you are going to have to deliver to acquire a piece like that are going to be enormous and probably more than Toronto is going to be willing to pay but we don't know yet, it's still relatively early.

Adam Rotter: If/when the Rangers trade Ryan McDonagh, the only acceptable return would be a young player(s) with high impact potential. I don't think you trade Ryan McDonagh to get a 1st, 2nd, young top-nine forward and something else, you trade Ryan McDonagh because you are going to land someone(s) that the Rangers can stick right into the middle of their rebuild. There are no sure things regarding young players but if the Rangers are going to trade their captain they need to get someone who is ready to step in and take on a big role as the Rangers continue to reshape things.
