In other words the Rangers and the teams in the standings up to Ottawa would have to pass on him before Ottawa could make a deal with the Wild for his rights.
That's correct, wasn't he released because he wasn't making a big enough impact to warrant his salary? I don't know about bringing him to the rags but I suppose if you paid him little and put him on the 4th line as a tough guy, meh why not.
