Over the past year the New York Rangers have been one of the busiest teams in the league when it comes to roster movement as theya€™ve kickstarted their rebuild. Since the start of last offseason the Rangers have dealt veteran playersA Derek Stepan,A Antti Raanta,A Nick Holden,A Michael Grabner,A Ryan McDonagh,A J.T. Miller, and Rick Nash. Some of them were rentals on expiring contracts (Holden, Grabner, Nash), while others still had term left on their deal (McDonagh, Miller, Stepan).

In return for that group of players they acquired 16 assets, including draft picks (three first-round picks, including a top-10 pick in 2017) and players that have ranged from established NHLers likeA Ryan SpoonerA andA Vladislav Namestnikov, to prospects like Brett Howden, Libor Hajek, and Ryan Lindgren.

Given that the Rangers are staring down the barrel at what could be a second consecutive non-playoff season and have an eye on the future, it is possible, if not likely, that the major roster shakeup will continue this season.

There are a couple of players on the roster worth watching when it comes to potential trades.
