Would the Rangers take impending free agent winger Ryan Clowe from San Jose in exchange for, say, Brian Boyle and a third-rounder? Sure thing. But would the Sharks make that deal? Extremely unlikely. And why in the world would Rangers general manager Glen Sather be willing to yield more than that when not even Hans Brinker, let alone Clowe, could close all the holes springing in the Blueshirts’ dike?

The Rangers don’t have a first rounder in the upcoming draft— sent to Columbus in the Rick Nash deal—but have a couple of extra thirds coming their way, one from Florida for Wojtek Wolski, another from Nashville in a selection swap last year.

The Blueshirts will forfeit their third to Columbus as part of the third to Columbus as part of the Nash deal if they reach the — ahem—conference finals.

The condition is

The Blue Jackets also are sending a conditional third-round pick and minor league defenseman Steven Delisle to the Rangers. The third-rounder would return to Columbus if the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup Final.
