Trade Grades: Rangers bet on Stars in Mats Zuccarello trade

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Stars landed skilled winger Mats Zuccarello for their playoff push, while the New York Rangers added more futures to their war chest. We grade both general managers on the swap.

The deal:

Stars get: F Mats Zuccarello
Rangers get: 2019 second-round pick (becomes a first-rounder if the Stars win two playoff series and Zuccarello plays in 50 percent of Dallas' games) and 2020 third-round pick (becomes a first-rounder if Stars re-sign Zuccarello)

Stars: B+
