    I'd like to get in on this action but I don't see an obvious match with the Rangers.

    Maybe Skjei, but I would think his contract is a turn-off.

    The problem with the Rangers is that they don't have the requisite surplus to pull off this deal, even though they have the clear need and cap room for Nylander. The Leafs, as you noted, need a defenseman, and the Rangers would be robbing Peter to pay Paul by giving up just about anyone. Especially Skjei.
