Rangers trade Scott Gomez for Chris Higgins (Updated)
UPDATE: Here are the full terms of the trade from the Rangers website:
New York Rangers President and General Manager Glen Sather announced today that the club has acquired forward Chris Higgins and defensemen Ryan McDonagh and Pavel Valentenko from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forwards Scott Gomez and Tom Pyatt, and defenseman Mike Busto.
Could this be Slats clearing some cap space for a Heatley, Cammalleri or the Sedin twins? It’s very possible as some possible deals have been thrown around in the MSM. For now, we wait to see what is in store for tomorrow. If anything happens with Heatley, it will happen tonight.
I take back every bad thing I’ve said about Glen Sather. For now at least. Let’s just see what happens tomorrow.
