Rangers acquire Peter Holland from Montreal

November 30, 2017, by

A bit of a minor trade, as the Rangers have acquired forward Peter Holland from Montreal in exchange for forward Adam Cracknell. Holland has spent the year in the AHL, but as recently as last year was with the Leafs regularly.

Cracknell was acquired off waivers by the Rangers, and was sent to the minors relatively quickly thereafter. For a waiver wire claim, turning it into Holland isn’t that bad. But this is likely an AHL only trade.

    Until your 1C goes down due to concussion, then who knows?

    Could be a backfill for forwards if/when either Letteri or Chytil gets called up to the big club. Maybe this move is closer than we think.

      Fogarty was a scratch Wednesday and the way he’s been playing lately I doubt he was a healthy scratch.

      As for Lettieri, STOP. He’s had 1a and a -7 in his last 4 games, AS A WINGER.

        So who, besides Chytil deserves a promo to the big club? Forwards

          To fill a top 6 C? Chytil. To fill a bottom 6 C role where you are focusing on all D, marginal O? Fogarty, but his health may be up in the air as well. Holland in a pinch.

          Lettieri is 3rd choice in Hartford as a top 6 C, probably behind Holland in that role as well.

    Holland will help now that Mika is out with concussion issues
