Rangers Trade Wojtek Wolski to Florida

The New York Rangers have traded forward Wojtek Wolski to the Florida Panthers in exchange for a third-round pick in the 2013 draft and AHL defenseman Mike Vernace, per TSN.  Wolski only played in nine games for the Blueshirts this season due to injuries, and with all of the time he spent on injured reserve, his roster spot on the team quickly vanished into thin air. He doesn...

Potential Trade Bait in Wojtek Wolski Needs to Enter Lineup

The New York Rangers may be atop the Eastern Conference despite some streaky play over the last two months, but there is no disguising their recent offensive struggles. A prime example was last night's 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, in which it was a grind to generate much of anything in the offensive zone for the Blueshirts, and they were unable to convert on the very...

Why the Rangers Need To Cut Loose Wolski

The Rangers need to get rid of Wojtek Wolski one way or the other. His presence may not be that of a locker room cancer but his salary, tantalising ability and mere presence make him a distraction and a temptation for the coaching staff. Wolski clearly cannot play consistently in Tortorella’s system. A few good shifts here and there are simply not enough for someone with his skill...

Three Games Later, Wolski Is Again In The Doghouse

Maybe “doghouse” isn’t the right word to use here, but after three games back in the lineup Wojtek Wolski has found himself back on the fourth line with minimal ice time. Used as an injury replacement for Brandon Dubinsky, Wolski was flying in his first game back (the 3-0 loss to the Senators). After that, it appeared that the winger was back to his old ways, as he played just...

Wolski Skating: Who Will Sit?

The news broke the other day, via Wojtek Wolski’s twitter, that he is back on the ice and skating following sports hernia surgery. The Rangers have not necessarily missed Wolski, going 9-2-0 in the month of November, but his return can be viewed as a good sign. Wolski certainly has skill, but the question is whether he fits into the current makeup of the roster. While the initial...
