While the NHL is on pause for the NHL All-Star weekend, the 32 General Manager's around the League are looking ahead to March 3rd's NHL Trade deadline day. Deadline day is always a fun unpredictable day as fan's watch to see what team's are sellers and what team's make the big moves to improve their chances to make the playoffs and possibly win the Stanley Cup.

One team that's looking to build off of last year's playoff run and that's the New York Rangers. They made it to the Eastern Conference finals last season which was good but not what the Rangers were hoping for as they wanted to return to the Stanley Cup final something they haven't done since 2014 vs the Los Angeles Kings, and haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1994 vs the Vancouver Canucks.

The Rangers have been rumored be going hard with the Chicago Blackhawks for Patrick Kane, but after the recent news from The Athletic's Arthur Staples that Kane may need to have season ending surgery the Rangers need to find a replacement for Kane.

It appears they have now set their eyes on Timo Meier. According to Hockey Insider Frank Seravalli, the Rangers are believe to have a deal in place to acquire the services of San Jose Sharks forward Timo Meier.

Meier is 26 years old and is a RFA this off-season. Meier is having a good year in San Jose with 48 points in 51 games Meier would be an excellent addition to a very talented Rangers roster if this deal becomes a done deal.

Rangers have both the cap space to trade and sign, but they also have the assets required to make a bolster move like this one a reality. Igor Shesterkin, Adam Fox and Artemi Panarin are all on top of their game, should they pull the trigger on Meier?
