I was not pleased at all with Tyutin's 2nd half last year. And his putrid performance in the playoffs stood out among the awful performances of many Ranger D-men (save Staal). The Rangers could afford to move Tyutin due to the development of Staal, the signing of Redden, and the return of Rozsival eventually pushed him to, at best, the 4th D-man on the Ranger depth chart. Tyutin has the talent to be a top pairing D-man. But, he is prone to more than his share of brain farts, and he does not bring his A-game on a nightly basis. However, he is a solid 2nd paring D-man. But, for the Rangers, with Sanguinetti and Sauer both only a year away, and the investment made to both Redden and Rozsival, it made sense that they would maximize whatever trade interest there was in Tyutin.
