...is it what the Pens really needed? I would rather have seen them pick up a quality blue liner. How do you think this trade will work out for the others involved?

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

I love this trade for the Pens. I was a big fan of Brassard while he was with the Rangers. They went on some deep playoff runs (Rangers actually have played the most playoff games since 2012, 5 more than PIT), and Brassard was a beast! He came through in the clutch for the Rangers, and I expect nothing less from him in Pittsburgh. That trio of Crosby, Malkin, Brassard down the middle is as good as it gets. Iím hoping for a Pens three-peat!

Gonna miss Brassard. No matter what the stats says, his line in Ottawa always drove the play and he was the most responsible center on the team. Unfortunately he didn't always get the best linemates.

Well that's was an interesting few days as a Rangers fan. They weren't kidding about blowing things up. Out are captain Ryan McDonagh, JT Miller, Rick Nash, Michael Grabner and Nick Holden.

The Rangers were able to get quite a few pieces in return which hopefully will help in the rebuild. From current roster players such as Vladislav Namestnikov & Ryan Spooner, to solid prospects such as Brett Howden, Libor Hajek, and Ryan Lindgren. In all 14 pieces came back the Rangers way, including a guaranteed 2 1st round picks (if Tampa Bay wins the Cup either this season or next, it'll be 3 1st rounders).

Finally, I just might have to cheer for the Lightning in the playoffs. Not only would a Cup give the Rangers a second 1st round pick (albeit the 31st pick), but they now have 5 ex-Rangers on their roster. All 5 played key roles on teams that went deep in the playoffs the past few seasons, and include their past two captains in McDonagh & Callahan...

Ryan McDonagh
Dan Girardi
Anton Stralman
JT Miller
Ryan Callahan

Ryan Spooner has been unbelievable so far, with 6 points through 7 periods so far with Rangers. He actually has more points then Rick Nash this season believe it or not.
