So it looks like the Marian Gaborik trade is paying off for both teams as a night after Derick Brassard and John Moore scored in their Rangers debut, Gaborik had the game winning goal and an assist in his frst game with the Blue Jackets... ...I said yesterday, don't be surprised if Gaborik re-discovers his scoring touch in Columbus. I mean, did you really think a player of his caliber wasn't going to start scoring again? What Rangers fans need to realize before going insane is that just because he might start lighting it up in Columbus doesn't mean he would be doing the same for the Rangers. Torts has a game plan for the Rangers which proved to be very successful last year. And as we saw against the Penguins, they are a better team when playing a tough, physical brand of hockey and unfortunately this season, with Gaborik in the line-up, it wasn't happening. ...plus the trade gave the Rangers much better depth and cap flexibility to sign free agents such as Stepan, Hagelin and McDonagh this summer. ...btw, did you see who was wearing an "A" while assisting on Gaborik's goal? Here's Gaborik after the game... Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at nyrfan94@yahoo.com.
