Wojtek Wolski from NYR to FLA for a 2013 third-round pick and Mike Vernace

The New York Rangers have traded forward Wojtek Wolski to the Florida Panthers, who sent a third-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft and minor-league defenseman Mike Vernace to the Rangers.

Wolski has no goals and three assists in nine games for the Rangers this season. He was acquired from Phoenix in January 2011 and had six goals and 19 points in 37 games for the Rangers after the deal. He is in the final year of a two-year contract at $3.8 million per season.

The 26-year-old forward has missed time this season with a pair of injuries, and was loaned to Connecticut in the American Hockey League for a conditioning stint but has been a healthy scratch of late.

It is Florida's second trade in as many days, following a deal Friday afternoon for forward Jarred Smithson from Nashville. The Panthers, hoping to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2000, are in an extremely close battle for a spot. Entering play Saturday, Florida held the No. 8 spot in the East, one point better than division rival Washington and Toronto and just one point behind Southeast Divsion leader Winnipeg, which sits third in the conference.

I always liked him in Colorado, but then the injuries came. Hope we overpay.

Major overpayment for someone who could've been had through waivers.

I fear this will be our "major move". We're also doing the Rags a huge favor by taking his salary off their books.

Looks like we got our "offense" guys.

I can't help but think something is up though, what do we have, like 43 forwards on our roster now?

This isn't the end.. its the beginning.

Wolski is to help out in the SO, he isn't the guy DT is going to get specifically for scoring.

Uh, what? All that for a shootout rental? Overpayment. I like him, but this is a bit too much.

That is what we need. A guy who can score at least a goal in the SO. We are getting burned everytime we are in one..

Seems like he's been injured like crazy for a the last 5 years. Does DT even think he'll play for us?

Bit harsh, from what I've seen he's not really a scrub. + I think he's a UFA after this season? Not sure...

He's an RFA. We'll see what he does in the next 20 games. If he sucks, we let him go, if he seems to produce, maybe we look at re-upping him for another year. Low risk, high reward move. Good job Dale.

Scrub... look up your facts people!

This guy will do a lot better than he did in NY. I've seen him play, he's a great player on the ice... this is what the Panthers need.

This isn't our last trade.

Those days are a ways back. Not sure about this one. Either a strikeout or a ground rule double (no home run possibilities here)

I think this guy has a lot of talent, could have a little bit of a revival in a less pressure-filled environment with fewer "big names" dominating the top-6

Not really. Salary is $3.8M but it's prorated, and he's an RFA end of season. It's mostly just taking a chance by spending some money. He might regain some of his old form in a new environment. He's been really good before, and is only 26.
