If I'm GM Joe

and i have a top 5 scoring center dangling as trade bait, and i'm dealing with the NY Rangers, this is what i'm looking for in return:

Derek Stepan (16-18-34)

Great shooter, still young and developing. Could be a very promising young player to center Benn/Glennie in the future.

Marc Staal (7-16-23)

Gives the Stars the much needed top pairing D-man, who at 24 is just coming into his prime in the league. Could be a huge shut down guy.

Dylan Mcilrath (Prospect)

Taken 10th overall in the 2010 entry draft, This is what scouts say about him:

Director of NHL Central Scouting, E.J. McGuire
"Big and mean, old-time typical NHL defenseman. He scares people not only with some frequent fights he might get in, but with 6-4, 212 lbs. straight ahead speed and offensive ability to match. Often, and in a very complimentary sense, makes puck carriers cut to the other side of the ice with his intimidating size."

Sounds like somebody the Stars could really use in the organization.

Also:

first round pick and a conditional second rounder (moves to first in next years draft if they re-sign Richards)

 

All in all i think it's a pretty level deal, i'd love to get some feedback from anyone familiar with Rangers organization or from the Rangers blog.
