With the trade deadline now two weeks away and teams narrowing their wish lists, the Rangers find themselves in a similar spot as most playoff hopefuls in coveting a top-four defenseman. Ideally, the Rangers would like a right-handed defenseman who could help on the power play as well as bolster a blue line that is currently without Marc Staal. This need has been a long-standing one, actually. The Blueshirts have been seeking, and unable to find, a player that fits this bill since Michael Sauer was injured last year.
