Sather is smart. He moved a scrub and a conditional 7th for Wellman, then traded his 2013 5th for a 2012 5th (Spelling).

He then turns Wellman into a Florida 5th rounder in 2013, which is not only a deeper draft, but will be a higher pick since it's assumed Florida will finish lower in the standings than us.

These moves seem minor, but in reality they make a ton of sense.

The Rangers now have 5 picks in the 1st 90, and picks in rounds 4, 5 and 6.

When bad teams stockpile picks, it's a roll of the dice. When good teams stockpile picks, it makes them more dangerous.

Wolski and Christensen for a 3rd and 5th. Not bad for two guys who were useless at the time they were traded and cost nothing to get in the first place.
