If there's a big Rangers trade coming it's going to include Kakko and/or Nils Lundqvist + a 1st for 2023. I think they're going to try to bridge the C position with a 1 or 2 year deal player and go all in for a C in 2 years when their cap really opens up. Malkin and Paul Stastny come to mind. Stastny is a perfect fit in my opinion because it gives them insurance at 2C if Chytil doesn't keep his playoff form. The Rangers need to figure out if Chytil is the next 2C for this team because he needs a deal next year.
