It seems like the trade went down like this. San Jose puts Mashinter on waivers, NY Rangers are interested but don't want to give up a contract spot, not have him on the NHL roster. They wait until he clears waivers, then make the offer to San Jose, we'll trade you Tommy Grant, likely a career AHLer, so we don't lose a contract slot, but we'll give you a draft pick as compensation for Mashinter, who we do actually want.

Similar to what I wrote, but yours is more likely

Mash has really regressed over the past 2 years. Dunno why.

But we traded for a guy that looks like a serial murderer.

I'm gonna call Mashinter Mashed Potatoes

Good trade. Rangers get a potential 4th line player, Sharks get a guy with generational photoshop upside.

this is funny because i was just talking about Tommy Grant with my friends today. He used to play for the local Jr.A team down in Victoria,BC and we thought he fell off of the map. He was a very explosive forward in his junior days and very smart.

So Tommy Grant goes from Hartford CT to Worcester MA. He doesn't have to move but his commute will be an hour longer.

Mashinter does have NHL experience. 13 games in 10-11. no points 17 PIMS.
CT does like their big forwards and they got it in Mashinter. Not sure if he fits into the Rangers plans tho.
I think at this point both players are what they are. mostly career minor league guys.

We have a winner!

from descriptions here, seems SJ wanted a better skater of ballpark equal value, and NY wanted depth/insurance in case they move Rupp sooner than later, or Rupp gets injured and the usual replacements are thin...
