    Can the Rangers Net a Grabner-Like Package for Zuccarello?

    Mats Zuccarello, who is also on that Power Five Unit, has done nothing to increase his value on the market in the six games he has played since returning from his extended groin-related absence. The Rangers should not wait for an unlikely bidding war to develop for the impending free agent. It does no good for a team to keep a veteran who knows he is out the door any longer than necessary.

    To that end, general manager Jeff Gorton, who is scouting the World Juniors in British Columbia, should be aggressive in attempting to jump the market on Zuccarello. If fortunate, the Rangers might be able to get a package equivalent to the one they got last year from the Devils for Michael Grabner (a second-round pick plus a reasonable prospect).

    Grabner's return seems fair at this point. Last year I would have hoped for something closer to Nash's return. What a nosedive Zucc's value has taken this season.

    The production isn't the only thing not really there. He looks like a guy standing in line to get his head cut off. Even the effort has taken a backseat, likely due to the feeling of uncertainty he's feeling in every game.

    Was gonna say it’s like he knows he’s going to get traded. He’s never looked worse as a ranger.
