Neil Smith coveted Dave Manson. Sather had acquired Manson from Keenan and the Hawks for Steve Smith. Neil actually went on the road to personally scout Manson at a time when Smith rarely scouted anymore. Sather wanted a ton. He ended up shipping him to John Paddock and the Jets for a ton.
Winnipeg 1st rounder from 1993 Mats Lindgren,Winnipeg's #1 in 1994(Jason Bonsignore),Bobo Mironov for Manson. He was a good player. Not a great player. Lindgren and Bonsignore never realized their potential.
It's no secret that the Rangers are hoping to trade a few of their excess forwards for an offensive defenseman -- preferably Edmonton's Dave Manson, whom Smith watched play in Winnipeg and Minnesota this weekend. It's also no secret that the Rangers and Turcotte began arbitration far, far apart -- about $400,000 apart -- in their stances and that Smith isn't pleased with the situation.
Good defenseman have value.
