The story goes that the Canadiens offered three different prospects and the Rangers chose Balej because Andy Bathgate is a roving scout in the Hamilton area for the Rangers. I bet Bathgate is the one who initiated this deal since he has been talking Balej up all year. I doubt Gainey went to the Rangers. I bet Sather asked around amongst his scouts for their recommendations on prospects and Bathgate mentioned Balej.
