Larry Brooks writes that if the Rangers trade Michael Grabner the return could potentially be a first round pick or young roster player. (NY Post)
Brooks also notes that Grabner could potentially be re-signed in the offseason.

Grabner has 21 goals this season after scoring 27 last season.
Adam Rotter: Speed is the one thing that everyone is looking for and speed, more than anything else, is what Grabner has. He has the ability to score and score big goals, as he has shown the past two years but his ability to go from defense/PK to offense and create off the rush is what will really make him attractive on the market. If the Rangers could land a first round pick for Grabner then it would be outstanding though I wonder if either multiple second round picks or a second and a prospect is a more likely return. I'm sure there will be a lot of interest in Grabner and that could help the Rangers get a good return.
