Updated New York Rangers Trade Meter 2/18/19
The NHL Trade Deadline is officially 1 week away. Based on the latest reporting here is the updated New York Rangers trade meter.
Kevin Hayes, Kevin Shattenkirk, Marc Staal and Jesper Fast all dipped. Hayes dipped due to the news that Matt Duchene is almost a lock to be traded. If his return is less than expected it could set a lower market value for Hayes and may force Jeff Gorton to keep him. That scenario is still unlikely and Hayes will probably be moved for a nice package.
Alexander Georgiev is red hot and with the likelihood that Igor Shestyorkin may be coming to the Rangers next season, he could be moved for a solid mid round draft pick.
The recent play of Brendan Smith and Vlad Namestnikov has caused an uptick in trade value and their chances of being moved has increased.
