I woke up from a nap to see the Clowe trade. My first thought was, "damn it." It's not that I have anything against Ryane Clowe. It's that it was, at first glance, an incredibly steep price to pay for a guy who has struggled offensively this season. Especially with the 2013 1st rounder sent to Columbus in the Nash deal, can we really afford to move our 2013 2nd rounder as well?
But like any rational (HA!) fan, I decided to step back and review all aspects of the trade before really deciding how I feel about it. And in doing so I'm beginning to form some different opinions on the deal. Let's analyze the trade a bit deeper and see how it might make some sense for the Rangers.
Let's get this out of the way first: Ryane Clowe has zero goals this season. Perfect fit for the Rangers! Ha ha! Hilarious! Are we done?
Getting 65 shots on goal and having zero go in goes way beyond skill; that is absolutely absurd (bad) luck. Fear The Fin con...

… Ryane Clowe said he always wanted to wear this hat after seeing it on 24/7. Well Ryane, in only your first game as a New York Ranger your wish has come true! Amazing game from Clowe last night.
from Louis-Andre Lariviere of TVA Sports (translated with a little editing by me),
Kent Hughes, Clowe's agent officer, told the TVA Sports as the Sharks try to exchange the attacker. Namely if the trade transaction can occur as early as Monday night, given the withdrawal of Clowe from tonight's game training, Hughes responded that it is a precaution. "A match...

Ryane Clowe and Derek Brassard: Welcome to New York. Brian Boyle: Welcome back. These three led the Rangers in the complete dismantling of the Penguins tonight, scoring a powerplay goal and at least three points each, and four of the Rangers first five goals en route to a 6-1 win. Boyle and Brassard had a goal and three assists each, and Clowe scored two (his first two of the season...

The trade deadline is today at 3pm, and the Rangers have already been active. They’ve acquired Ryane Clowe for draft picks, and are rumored to be in on Ryan O’Byrne, a right handed defenseman form Colorado. Jamie McBain was a name rumored to be available, but with Joni Pitkanen getting hurt, it’s unlikely the Canes move him.
Use this as your open thread to discuss the deadline...
After trading Ryane Clowe to the New York Rangers yesterday, the Sharks have bolstered their strength by adding Raffi torres for a 2013 third rounder. On July 1, 2011, Torres signed a two-year contract worth $3.5 million with the Phoenix Coyotes. He recorded his first goal nearly a month into the 2011–12 season, in a 3–2 shootout loss [...]
We're huge fans of the Pens looking like ass right now. It was bound to happen when the streak ended. This is all happening at the best time possible, too. The Pens will be playing the 7 or 8 seed in the first round. Those two seeds will have hit some kind of stride by that time in order to battle through the logjam at the bottom of the East. So, let the Pens figure some ***...
