from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Just prior to the deadline, Sather made his move, sending Ward to the Bruins for Paul Mara, in whom the Blueshirts had been interested for weeks.
It was a deal that improved the Rangers on the ice, with Mara providing a second power-play-unit point option Ward did not. Beyond that, it was a trade that purified the atmosphere. And, most critically, it was a trade that solidified Jagr’s status as captain and cemented the mutual bond of trust and commitment between No. 68 and the hierarchy.
It was the fork in the road for the Rangers, who have followed their leader on the path to a sweep of Atlanta and the second round of the playoffs.
