Today, the Rangers acquired defenseman Justin Falk from Minnesota in exchange for forward Benn Ferriero and a sixth-round pick (originally Columbus’) in the 2014 NHL Draft. Falk, 24, registered three assists and 40 penalty minutes in 36 games with the Minnesota Wild last season. He posted a plus or even rating in 27 of his 36 contests, and skated in his 100th career NHL game on March 27 against Phoenix. Falk also skated in four playoff contests, making his NHL playoff debut on May 3 at Chicago in Game 2 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series. Falk is a restricted free agent who has a minimum qualifying offer of  $866,250. For those that asked, Falk is a big tough sixth or seventh d; worst case winds up in Hartford. Former fourth rounder. Probably good move ... — Leslie Treff (@HFNYRangers) June 30, 2013 ...i will never complain about defensive depth. Especially when it's big and tough. Assuming Falk, who is likely Eminger's replacement, will accept the Rangers qualifying offer. Not much leverage. ...absolutely shocked this is all Sather ended up doing today. Thought for sure he was going to dazzle Rangers fans again by pulling another rabbit out of his hat. Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
