With what can essentially be called two trade deadlines this year due to the Olympics, the Rangers did not make any major trades to improve the NHL club at this year’s deadline. The only significant move the Rangers will have made was the Olli Jokinen deal.
As for the minor trades the Rangers did make, they were Jordan Owens for Kris Newbury, and Miika Wiikman/7th rounder in 2011 for Anders Eriksson. Owens was signed to an NHL contract over the summer, but with the Pack in need of centers, the trade was made. Eriksson, 35, is a depth defenseman, and is probably going to be used to fill the depleted defensive corps at Hartford.
That’s it. Talking about anti-climactic.
The Depth Chart has been updated to reflect these moves.
