Rangers Trade Bobby Sanguinetti To Carolina

June 26, 2010, by

In some unsurprising news, the Rangers have traded prospect Bobby Sanguinetti to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for a 2010 6th round pick (for who the Rangers pick, see the post below), and a 2011 2nd round pick (originally Washington’s pick). Sanguinetti had not only fallen on the depth chart behind other prospects, but had fallen out of favor with Rangers management, who had passed over him for the likes of Anders Ericsson when the Rnagers needed another defenseman.

This is a bit of a bad return for Sanguinetti, who was a former first round pick in 2006 (#21 overall). Sangs was taken ahead of Claude Giroux, Milan Lucic, Patrick Berglund, among others. I don’t know much on the 2011 draft class yet, but let’s hope it’s a deep top sixty.

    dave we agree lol this is a bad deal we could have packaged him for something a little better than that.

    It’s amazing how far his value dropped. But, Fasth (the 6th rounder) seems like a great pick, could be a sleeper.
