So Washington, Philly, NYR made moves to get better. I think Lou really has to do something here

 

He's working the phones to get that 4th rounder for Marty

He's been their captain for a few years.  And Nash will fill in quite well in that role.

 

Callahan is a grittier, tough to play against player. Nash is good but he's a different type of player. Who knows what goes on in the Rangers locker room. I guess we'll just have to see how things play out.

did Tampa not shop him anywhere else? I have a hard time believing they couldn't get a .50 PPG pending UFA and two draft picks for him from nearly every other team. I have a hard time believing he'd only go to NYR unless that came out and I missed it

I will say though, it appears as if the Rangers make the ECF, that 2nd this year turns into another 1st. So it's possible if the Rangers win two rounds this becomes a 1st in 2014 and 2015 for MSL

He only wanted to go to one team.

St Louis had a NMC. Maybe he only wanted to go to NY?

If Tampa is smart they are looking to unload Callahan now.   He is made of papermache and will increasingly show diminishing returns.

 

Its a pretty big IF.

With all the garbage Sather gets for being "him" and pro-active, he's fleeced his share of teams, too. 

 

Lamoriello also does not have the organizational assets. You have to give to get and you have to have to get. The Rangers roster was set up for this type of impact deal. But it also shows that you can be a Cup contender/playoff team AND trade a upcoming FA and get better.

Well I guess the thinking is that the 1st and 2nd offset the difference in player between Callahan and St. Louis while still allowing the Lightning to try and win this year

St.Louis to NYR makes them a threat now.

This should lead to a Tampa a losing tailspin. Good for us.


Why would Tampa losing and the Rangers winning be good for us? We're a lot closer to the Rangers in the standings.

So it would be the number 26 pick in a weak draft and a who knows pick next year in what they say is a top heavy draft.

 

If you want the Rangers to lose out in this deal, everything that you can imagine has to go wrong for them next year.

To be fair, St. Louis only wanted to go to one team and forced Yzerman's hand.  He still got back a decent haul all things considering

i guess there was discussion about this being a 3 way trade cause tampa were not that interested in Callahan but we'll see. Kind of a risky move to make that trade if you dont want him and without having a next move
