Heikkinen, Sanguinetti Re-Assigned To Hartford

Rangers defensemen Ilkka Heikkinen and Bobby Sanguinetti have been re-assigned to Hartford, according to Andrew Gross. No other moves were made. We can assume that the Rangers will put Wade Redden back in the lineup, and call up Matt Gilroy. But still, I don’t understand this move. Benching Redden is working. Heikkinen, I thought, had played well. Sanguinetti was expendable, but you had Gilroy playing well. Torts needs to keep Redden on the bench for as long as possible. Don’t get this move.
