Rangers Trade Wolski & Clear Cap Space Ahead Of Monday's NHL Trade Deadline

The Rangers this afternoon traded Wojtek Wolski to the Florida Panthers for AHL defenseman Mike Vernace and a 2013 3rd round draft pick.

Not a bad return for the Rangers as they were able to clear cap space ($3.8M) and get something of value for a player who has been either injured or a healthy scratch this whole season. Not to mention, he will be a UFA this offseason. 

Hopefully this was Sather's way of getting something for a player that wasn't being used before they lost him for nothing this summer. Or, clearing some cap for a move before Monday's NHL trade deadline to add someone who can score some goals.

Hopefully, that move doesn't involve Rick Nash, whose asking price right now according to rumors, is way too high. Not to mention, his cap hit for the next seven years is pretty insane as well.
