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.
The 5th rounder we acquired for Wellman is a 2014, not 2013.
