Adam Rotter: The Rangers should definitely aim high and look for a first round pick for Grabner. He doesn't have Rick Nash's name but he has the ability to be a gamebreaker with his speed, ability on the PK and penchant for getting breakaways. He's a valuable asset for the Rangers and one that, like Eaves, could be gotten for at least a conditional second round pick that turns into a first if certain requirements are met. The Rangers know how good he can be and how much of an impact, even as a third liner, Grabner can make and will be aiming high for his return.
