Default Rangers-TB Trade

After just missing out on a starting goalie in free agency, the Rangers were forced to make a trade for the most important position. After several days of negotiations, the Rangers and Tampa were able to agree on a trade.

To TB:
Claude Giroux
Carl Hagelin
JF Berube

To NYR:
Scott Darling
Brandon Dubinsky
Colton Sceviour

It hurts giving up a sim stud like Giroux but I needed a starting goalie and I think Darling has the potential to be the next Jones or Talbot. Dubinsky will slide right into the 2nd line center position and Sceviour will give me a bottom forward who can play a few minutes. This is a good ol'fashion hockey trade as it helps both teams. Thanks to Drew for the talks.

That's a risky move with potential to be a damn steal. I like the aggression. Good deal.

I think the Rangers will need a backup plan or risk missing the POs this year! I have a great idea!

Tampa has a number of 3rd and 4th line forwards. getting a top line guy like Giroux was key. Also saving some cap was a big factor as well. Good deal for both sides we thik
