There is no reason for Sather to make these moves waiving both Voros and Lisin unless he has trade finalized. With Gaborik and Del Zotto out the Rangers are short a forward for tonights game. However if he has trade in place where he is taking back more salary then he is sending out the Rangers have to be cap compliant so by this time tomorrow it looks like Slats has a deal in place so that Voros and Lisin's cap hits will be off the books.

In essence, he has to make this move today to accomodate the incoming player, so at least there will be at least one NYR trade announced by tomorrow; and for him to put two players on waivers, its probably a significant player coming back in return with a higher cap hit then whats going back the other way.

BTW, was the rumor of Girardi not making the trip to Ottawa yesterday true? If so wouldn't we even be even more shorthanded tonight?
