This is why the trade makes so much sense. Both teams are dealing from a positon of strength to fill a position of weakness. The Rangers are a bit weak on defense and need cap space. Toronto has too many d-men and is looking for top-6 forwards. A White+ for Zherdev deal makes sense. Especially if the Rangers can swing a deal for Heatley using that cap space and moving Rozsival.
