Yzerman pulled off a huge deal. Marty is going to be 39 this summer, and he got Callahan, a 1st, a 2nd, and a conditional pick?

:clap:

Callahan is a good player, but not worth what it's rumored that he wants ($6 million per season).

St.Louis is a consistent 80 plus pt guy, and I'm certain he'll continue to be so with the Rangers.

Rangers are out to win the Cup now - by adding St.Louis only improved their chances.

Pick info:

Tampa gets 15 1st; '14 2nd that becomes a 1st if NY gets to Conf Final.

IF Callahan stays, NY gets TB 2nd in '15 and TB gets NY's 7th in '15.

Pretty complex deal on all levels.

Given St. Louis apparently only want to go to the Rangers, Yzerman did pretty well with the deal.

This may be the understatement of the day.

Love St, Louis as a player....but he's THIRTY EIGHT! to get Callahan PLUS good picks......crazy. Maybe you get another 2-3 years of good Marty?

I may be in the minority here, but I feel St.Louis is a much better player than Callahan, and if a team like the Rangers has the bulk of their talent in their late 20's, and older - you want to win now, and St.Louis only increases that chance of winning...

As for the draft picks going to TB - it's gonna be 4, or 5 years before we see if any of them pan out.

NYR win this deal.

Yes, except Stevie didn't really have a chance to win considering St L forced his hand, , yet he still did well.

We'll see how well Gillis does with Kesler.

Agreed.

It's coming out that St.Louis more or less forced this deal, but Stevie did well enough considering the circumstances.

Yzerman's trade looks even better:

TBL confirm that if the NYR reach the ECF this season, the 2nd round pick they get from the Rangers this year will become a 1st round pick.

I'd like to get the real dirty details on the snub. I sponsored and managed a pretty competive ( top 20 out of 450 ) http://www.skitosea.com multi-sport relay race team for a few years and that was difficult enough to keep everybody happy, I can't imagine the pressures of the Canadian Olympic Hockey Team. Sheesh.
