NEW YORK, June 20, 2016 – New York Rangers General Manager Jeff Gorton announced today that the team has acquired a sixth round pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft and a conditional fourth round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Keith Yandle. The Blueshirts would receive the fourth round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft if Yandle signs with the Panthers.

The Rangers currently have six selections in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft: their own third round pick (81st overall), Arizona’s fourth round pick (98th overall), their own fifth round pick (141st overall), their own sixth round pick (171st overall), Florida’s sixth round pick (174th overall), and their own seventh round pick (201st overall).

Yandle has to be a Campbell replacement.  Otherwise everything else they’ve done make no sense at all.

My god, FLA may need Jakub Kindl to play 82 games for them,

FYI, George Richards recent tweet says Panthers still plan to sign UFA Brian Campbell in case anyone was wondering.

Man, why does it seem like Holland has no clue what he’s doing anymore? I know these are minor trades I just am expecting the worst tbh.

Then as I said, it all makes no sense.

They traded away Gudbranson to free up space to sign Yandle?  That’s elite-level stupidity.

I am sure it is all kosher with the fancy stats crew in charge there now.

Small deals are starting to happen early as they did last year. By July 1 all the big stars will be gone and KH will still be fishing in the Parking lot.  Can you pull the trigger, if not, leave KH!
