Remarkably, the shot broke the blade off of Dorsett’s boot. Dorsett tried to get back to his bench, but it wasn’t easy with just one skate. Hilarious.

Rangers trade Dorsett to Canucks for a pick

The Rangers have traded Derek Dorsett to the Canucks in exchange for a third round pick (85th overall) in the 2014 draft. I speculated earlier that Dorsett may be traded in favor of Dan Carcillo or a cheaper alternative for the fourth line as a means to open up some cap space. A third round pick for a fourth line face puncher isn’t a bad return for the Rangers.

A New York Rangers Fan Guide: Can I root for Carcillo?

When the New York Rangers acquired Dan Carcillo early in January, there was a minor revolt within the team’s fanbase. Carcillo, thanks to three years of douchebaggery on the Flyers from 2008 to 2011, had become one of those players you have to hate to call yourself a Rangers fan. To see the team then go out and trade for the guy felt like inviting Denis Potvin to Christmas dinner...
