The moves clear over $2 million in cap space and ensure that both Miller and Kreider...
Gaborik to CBJ pending he waives and trade call. — Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) April 3, 2013 … WOW… more on this as it breaks! UPDATE: Katie Strang of ESPN says the Rangers would get back Brassard, Dorsett and Moore in the deal for Gaborik.

There is no doubt that Henrik Lundqvist is the most important player on the Rangers; as he goes so goes the team. There is no question that Rick Nash is the Rangers most talented skater on the team; when he scores the Rangers often win.
However when the team needs a big play--a big hit, a courageous shot block or more importantly a momentum changing...
