San Jose and the Rangers swapped players in NHL 2005

San Jose and the Rangers swapped players with goalie Dan Blackburn going to the Sharks and defenceman Scott Hannan heading to New York.


If Blackburn has that much value in the real NHL, Sather should move him.

well,thats why its all simulated...not very real :shakehead

however, i do think the Rangers will trade Blackburn eventually, for a few reasons:
1. they have Montoya and Lundqvist available as possible starters
2. both Montoya and Lundqvist are probably a bit better than Blackburn
3. the Rangers have key needs to address at Center and on Defense

however, they should fetch much more than Hannan for Blackburn. i see maybe a larger deal taking place. We have plenty of offensive dmen as always but no rock-solid defensive dmen. So i'm thinking the Rangers may package Blackburn with a guy like Poti for a good Center and a defensive dman like a Hannan

I'd love to package Lundmark and Poti for a second/third-line center (early 20s). In my mind I keep envisioning a deal with Dallas for N.Kapanen, but I don't see it happening.

BTW, I like that Buzek deal in the article. ;)

Lundmark and Poti as a package MIGHT fetch you a 123rd round pick in 2316!!!!

The Flames acquired goalie Chris Mason and forward Steve Sullivan from Nashville in exchange for defenceman Petr Buzek.
Was this designed so that the Flames rip off everyone and win the whole thing?

#1. Hannan is exactly what the Rangers need. Young physical stay at home defenseman. He's the guy the Rangers have been looking for to partner with Leetch for the last 6 years or so.

#2. There isn't a chance in hell that the Sharks would move him for Blackburn.
