Here are the Gorton quotes

In an equally tough spot are the New York Rangers, who cling to the No. 8 spot following a loss to the Senators and another win by the suddenly surging Islanders. The Blueshirts are still a team capable of making a long playoff run, they just have to get there first.

The Penguins' moves put pressure on their conference rivals to keep up.

"Obviously, you're watching what other teams do," Gorton said. "I don't think it can dictate what we're going to do. Most teams, including us, have a plan in place on what we want to do. That's what we're going to do. I don't think you can get drawn into things because of what another team does."

The Rangers have a need for a right-handed shot defenseman and would like to bolster some of the depth lost in the Rick Nash trade. But these aren't new issues. The Pittsburgh trades change nothing on that front.

"We knew when we traded for Rick we were giving up depth for a great player. We've had a number of discussions inside the organization," Gorton said. "We know where we're at. We knew this could be a potential issue."
