So it was actually Chad Johnson for Ryan Hollweg and Andy Bathgate.
Bathgate was at the prospect camp last year... I wonder why he was not signed... i wonder if NYR will sign him this year.. could add depth to the Wolfpack...

We had R.J. Umberger? What happened with that?

Anson Carter for Jaromir Jag, LIRL.

Rights to Marek Zidlicky for Mike Dunham. Wow. There's some gems in there.
If I remember correctly, Umberer wanted too much money for an unproven NCAA player which miffed Sather. Let him walk and he signed in Philly.

I was always curious if they would have stayed at 16 (and kept 41) who they might have targeted there.

If they went D again, I'm guessing they would have gone with Parent or Lashoff.

41 might have been interesting if they'd still take Sauer at 40. Wonder if they would have considered Stasny.
I remember when the Dupuis/Bourrett trade went down there were some quotes that suggested Bourrett was their guy at 16 if they stayed. Could have been BS to hype the trade but clearly they liked him since they traded for him again.

This list makes me feel old. I still remember when the Rangers first traded Kovalev for Nedved. That was the deal where I lost my "hockey innocence". Just crushed as a kid.

Wow...memories.

I still remember going to the December 26, 1988 afternoon game as a Christmas present when I was a kid, and we saw Carey Wilson skating around in a Ranger uniform for the pre-game skate...but no Don Maloney. There was no announcement, but word of mouth filtered through the Garden that Maloney was traded to the Whalers for Wilson.

I think that's the trade that led to the 'blackout' period that players cannot be traded during the holiday break.

Carey Wilson was a good player, just not for us

not sure if its on the list but trading Rosival for Wolkski...

Rosival wasn't worth the $ but we traded a solid 4-5th dman and got back a bust. Trades like this hurt us, because we have nothing to show for it. You have to think that Rosival could have gotten us at least a bottom six roster player.

Same thing with Tyutin.

Same thing with Korpikoski (who we shouldn't have traded to begin with, although I heard he didn't want to play for us... Tortorella at the time.)

What about Prucha/Dawes.. Morris? ugh...

no more trades with Phx or CLB

Middleton was a hell of a hockey player at the beginning of his career. Ken Hodge was at the tail end of his. The deal was actually made to placate Espositio who wanted some of his old pals around--in the mid '70's we saw all kinds of former Bruins (our most hated rivals then) playing for the Rangers--Derek Sanderson, Dallas Smith, Don Awrey. It was all about trying to keep Esposito happy.

This was bad too--losing Norstrom was the worst. Solid no nonsense defenseman for a long time.

Another horror. Ridley was a top notch second line center--excellent penalty killer. Miller was more the 3rd line type but he was really good as well and another excellent penalty killer. Those two guys gave the Caps quality seasons for years. Carpenter had had one great season and had wobbly knees---he sucked for us and if I remember right we traded him before too long to the Kings for Marcel Dionne who was on the verge of retirement.

Excerpts from Sports Illustrated article, There's No One So Shifty As Nifty - March 30, 1981

Quote:
As an NHL rookie, Middleton scored 22 goals, but he lost a few teeth and broke his left leg, which caused him to miss 33 games. Next year was worse. Early in the 1975-76 season New York acquired Phil Esposito from Boston, where he had rewritten the NHL goal-scoring records. Shortly thereafter New York fired General Manager Emile Francis and Coach Ron Stewart and replaced them with former Montreal tough guy John Ferguson. The Rangers finished with a 29-42-9 record and failed to make the playoffs. Middleton was miserable, and so was Espo, who figured New York's major shortcoming was the lack of a brawny wing who could dig the puck out of the corners for him, as Wayne Cashman and Ken Hodge had done in Boston. He had a solution—get Hodge.

The deal was struck in May of 1976: Hodge for Middleton. It was rumored that the Ranger hierarchy had soured on Middleton because he was thought to be a "bad liver" off the ice. "I kept wondering if New York wanted to get rid of me, or if Boston really wanted me," Middleton says. "I found out only recently that the Bruins did want me."
The Bruins had been interested in acquiring Middleton from the beginning.

Pat LaFontaine to NYR was a decent trade until Mike Keane hurt him and had to retire

Rod Gilbert and Esposito didn't get along. Fighting over who was going to wear #7. Gilbert held on to it but eventually was marginalized and retired. He had to be placated too. Stars--superstars, goal scorers--95% of them are egomaniacs--pretty much on every level from pee wee to rec leagues to juniors, college and pro.

As far as hanging out with the wrong crowd--somebody mentioned Middleton for that--the one I remember was Don Murdoch. That guy could have been a hell of a hockey player--got arrested crossing the Canadian border with a bag of cocaine. After that his career was on a downward path.

This was the "Jumping the Shark" moment of Neil's Smith's career as GM.

And he was injured or out a good part of that. Scored 5 goals one night against Minnesota (I think). It was like his 5th NHL game--right after being drafted. WTF! The guy looked like he was going to be a superstar.
