So you could say they traded Montoya for Grachev. However, I prefer to say he traded Montoya for Sjostrom which shows that Sather is clueless when it comes to being a GM.

That being said, Sjostrom could be a great 4th line player if he wasn't playing with no offense Betts. Sjostrom is a guy I would be looking to scoop up if I was a serious contender. Betts is another guy who on a team with 3 solid scoring lines, could fill a good PK role.

As far as Montoya goes, there is always truck driving school.
There was no third rounder involved in that deal. It was a conditional fifth that the Rangers won't end up getting.
