Nik Antropov traded to the Rangers
The New York Rangers have acquired Nik Antropov from the Toronto Maple Leafs for a 2nd round pick and a conditional pick* according to the TSN Trade Centre
*Update: According to the Toronto Star, if the New York Rangers win two playoff rounds this year then the Leafs will be sent the NYR's 4th round pick (this is the conditional pick).
Antropov is huge - he's 6'6, 230lbs. But, he wasn't in Brian Burke's plans and since he won't be re-signed by Toronto after this season it wouldn't make much sense for them not to trade him to get something in return.
