Wednesday was a big day in Rangerland. As we all know by now, the Blueshirts acquired Ryane Clowe for three draft picks and traded oft-maligned sniper Marian Gaborik to the Blue Jackets for Derick Brassard, Derek Dorsett, and John Moore (with misc. non-prospects and a late draft pick thrown in). Yesterday, Chris did a fantastic job adding some perspective in the musings. Suit broke it down on Twitter. I don’t think it’s fair they get to have all the fun with the new acquisitions, so I’m going to throw my two cents in. Think of it as a supplemental trade musings.
I’m going to do my best not to retread on already discussed ground…
Obviously, having some time to digest the trade scenario for a day or two in addition to the beat down the Rangers threw Pittsburgh on the eve of the trade makes it look pretty good. I’ll be interested to see how the team looks tonight.
It’s my feeling that this trade was all about flexibility. After the Nash trade and t...

… 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.

Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record says JT Miller was recalled back to the Rangers after being assigned to the Whale this morning. Gross adds that Miller will NOT be in the line-up tonight vs. the Penguins.
Meanwhile, Katie Strang at ESPN reports that Derick Brassard is en route to New York and could be here before game time.
...what an absolutely wacky day.
Ryan Clowe had THE perfect impact.
It’s hard to call the Rangers 6-1 demolition of the Penguins last night anything other than an incredible first impact from the new guys. Wherever you looked, players were making a difference and it’s intriguing the momentum and impetus incoming players give the current roster. On to the musings; dedicated to the trade deadline
You just know...
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...
Nik Zherdev. Nikita Filatov. Gilbert Brule. These are just a few of the first round draft picks who were supposed to come to Columbus and turn the team into a competitive force in the Western Conference. Those three, along with many others, failed to match the expectations and succeed with the Blue Jackets. We can now also add Derick Brassard to that list.
Drafted sixth overall...
The Trade deadline has come and gone and as usual the Sharks were busy. After moving out Douglas Murray, Michal Handzus, and Ryane Clowe the Sharks added to their depleted line-up. Within the last hour before the deadline the San Jose acquired former Shark Scott Hannan and Raffi Torres.
The Sharks traded away a lot of grit with Murray and Clowe which Torres will help replace....
In a stunning move the Columbus Blue Jackets have acquired struggling sniper Marian Gaborik from the New York Rangers in exchange for forwards Derick Brassard and Derek Dorsett along with young defenseman John Moore.
Gaborik, who has just nine goals this season, has three 40-goal campaigns under his belt and gives the Jackets a needed goal scorer for their playoff push. He seemed...
One of the gutsiest trades made at the trade deadline, not just this year but in quite a few years, was the blockbuster swap between the New York Rangers and Columbus Blue Jackets that sent Marian Gaborik and two minor league defensemen to Columbus in exchange for center Derrick Brassard, right wing Derek Dorsett, defenseman John Moore and a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft.
When it comes to this part of the season, every single point matters to NHL teams that are either in a playoff spot or on the outside looking in.
This is exactly the case when it comes to the New York Rangers. With six total points up for grabs between Monday and Friday, the Blueshirts probably surprised many by picking up five.
The Blueshirts picked-up their fifth point tonight...
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 ***...
