I had mentioned earlier in the year that we could use Dorsett, but only problem is he's hurt right now. We're starting to look better if you asked me. Gaborik hasn't been Gaborik this year so I think this is a good trade. I think everyone is really gonna like Dorsett.

I was one of the guys that always wanted to keep Gaborik and wait it out but it's become apparent that he's either not a fit here anymore or he needs a change of scenery. If he continued on the pace he was on t'ill the end of the year we wouldn't have gotten as much as we got for him right now and be stuck with his contract for another year. I'm just a little bummed they didn't make this move yesterday so we'd have a lineup for tonight.

If it's true I still don't like the move for you guys. Yeah Gaborik is having a slow year but still, this won't help your playoff run for just depth guys. It opens more cap for next season and tonight is a huge game for the Rags. I don't like it if I am a Rags fan.

redwhiteandblue
04-03-2013, 02:58 PM
Yeah, not a huge fan of the return. If you're going to make that move, at least bring back an NHL blue liner in the deal. Brassard has not lived up to the hype of a 6th overall pick and you don't trade a slumping all star for depth like Derek Dorset or John Moore a guy who is also falling short of his draft status.

A more appropriate move would have been Gaborik for Johnson and Dorsett even. I like adding a guy like Dorsett but did we need to dump Gaborik to get him?

A stunner of a deal coming out of Ohio today ó the Blue Jackets have acquired New York Rangers sniper Marian Gaborik.

The deal was pending as Gaborik held no-trade clause, which he waived.

The move is an absolute blockbuster for rookie GM Jarmo Kekalainen, who has only been on the job in Columbus since mid-February.

That said, New Yorkís return is plentiful. TSNís Darren Dreger reports forwards Derek Brassard, Derek Dorsett and defenseman John Moore (plus a sixth-round pick in 2013) would be on their way to the Big Apple.

Brassard was Columbusí first-round pick in 2006, Moore the clubís first-rounder in 2009 and Dorsett is one of the teamís alternate captains.

It should be noted that Dorsett is likely done for the season with a broken clavicle. ESPNís Katie Strang is reporting that Dorsett could be back by the playoffs, though.

I like Brassard and Dorsett to be honest so i don't have a huge problem with the deal.

He just looked disengaged and uninterested this year most of the time.

Shocked that this was the return we get for Gaborik, but his production this year has been awful. Can't believe with Gaborik, Nash, Richards, Callahan and others we have the worst offense in the league. Not sure if that speaks of our production or our coach.

I hate how good this team is on paper and how bad we are in the game. Like that we got some young talent.

Gah, I dont know what to think

This move had to be made in order to have the cap to resign the young players like hagelin this offseason. Also the cap decreases next year and Gabs has been invisible most of the season. I do think they could've gotten a little more in return but I'm glad they didn't take back Dubinsky. His ship has sailed.

apdamico
04-03-2013, 03:07 PM
Shocking. Clowe just said he expected to play with Gabs and Richards. I sure hope we get some skill or dmen. If it is just a bunch of grinders I will be really disappointed.

Sly, I was really looking forward to that lineup of Rhino/Richards/Gabby, it would have really opened up space for Richards and Gabby and I thought it was the perfect fit. Now we get back some young experienced talent with more grit. If I'm not mistaken, Moore is another left-handed defenseman! At least Brassard has been hot as of late. It only made sense that we had something in the works for a defenseman and center.

Looks like we just got younger and tougher and with kids that have played more at the NHL level. Sending our 3 kids down now seems to make more sense. I just wish we got a top 4 defenseman back. I hope this also means that Staal is expected back this season!

This sure screws us for tonight's game. It also looks like we are trying to put back together a team that resembles last year's team. Now we will have Asham, Clowe and Dorsett to drop the gloves when needed. I really thought that at times we needed to jump start the team with some rough stuff, but we just didn't have anybody available to fight. We certainly have that now.

Maybe another move is in the works because I don't view Moore as a top 4 defenseman at this point of his career. He's certainly better than what we currently have available to send out there as a 5th or 6th defenseman. I sure hope this means Staal is expected back this season and Sauer is still in the plans for next season!

Gabby likely would have been amnesty next season anyway, so I guess it's a good thing to add to our young nucleus, especially when the cap goes down next season and we have Mac, Steps and Hags as RFA's.

That's dissappointing that we acquired an injured player. Gabby was just not the same after his shoulder surgery. Obviously we aren't getting Dorsett to score 40 goals, but he's viewed as a poor man's replacement for Prust. I just wish he was healthy right now!

Gabs was an elite player here in 2 of his 4 seasons. I wish his success with Duby and AA in Columbus. If you add in Prospal, Tyutin and Erixon CBJ is becoming a 2nd NY Rangers team. Hopefully Zooks gets to play a lot still. Tonight's game could be interesting. :)

C'mon guys, it's not like that at all. Dorsett is the oldest (at 26-years old) of the 3 players we obtained, along with a 6th round pick.

Dorsett can more than handle himself, but of course having a shoulder injury is not ideal. I don't know if he can play of the PK like Prust, but he certainly can score a bit and seems like a great replacement for Prust.

We will have Clowe to fight the heavy weights and Asham and Dorsett for the middle weights.

Seems almost funny that the 2 lowest scoring teams traded with eash other. I sure hope Brassard is better in shoot outs than Gabby, he really can't be any worse - lol!

I wonder if we can get anything at all for any of our extra defensemen (Gilroy) at the deadline?

Yep not to mention the cap relief and Gabs lackluster play this year didn't guarantee he would have been any better than Brassard anyway.

Yep not to mention the cap relief and the fact that these guys might be more productive the rest of this year than Gaborik would have been anyway (Clowe and Brassard)

What is our cap space looking like?

In a nut shell we replaced Gaboriks scoring this year with Brassard and got a Brandon Prust type guy and a young first round draft dman. I don't think we did that bad. I think our team is better with this trade right now and in the future, all young guys.

We are certainly better off in the future because of next year's salary cap reduction and Mac, Steps and Hags all needing new contracts.

Gabby was destine to be a cap casualty, so getting back 3 young pieces is a very good deal. Plus, we are closer to last year's identity with the 4 new players from these 2 trades!

We weren't going anywhere without some size against Boston or Pitsburgh and we were just barely clinging to a playoff spot with what we had. We needed a change and we got it. It was either trade Gaborik now or be stuck with his contract or buy him out in the summer for nothing. We aquired two former first round picks who are young and an abrasive young player in Dorsett.

What is our cap space looking like?

This report only states we shed salary:

In dealing the three-time 40-goal scorer, the Rangers also shed salary -- a huge coup considering the salary cap will drop to $64.3 million next year. Gaborik had one year left on a five-year, $37.5 million deal that paid him $7.5 million annually.

Meanwhile, the Blue Jackets added some offense to a lineup that has made a surprising playoff push. As of Wednesday, Columbus (15-14-7) is one point back on the eighth-place St. Louis Blues in the Western Conference standings.

"The one thing we needed to address is goal scoring, offense and the power-play," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said Wednesday during an interview with TSN.

In terms of the players heading to New York in the deal, the Rangers addressed some major needs.
Paper-thin at center, the Rangers added depth down the middle by adding Brassard, a 25-year-old center who has seven goals and 11 assists in 34 games for the Blue Jackets this season.

Agent Allan Walsh said via text that Brassard is "very happy" to join the Rangers.
The Rangers also add another defenseman in Moore to a back end that currently is without valuable blue-liner Marc Staal, who is out indefinitely with an eye injury.

Moore, 22, is a former first-round pick (2009, 21st overall) who averaged 14:30 per game.
Although Dorsett is injured, the 23-year-old adds some extra grit to the Rangers, who toughened up one day prior with the addition of Clowe.

Dorsett, who has 53 penalty minutes in 24 games for the Blue Jackets, broke his collarbone last month but is not believed to be done for the season, contrary to the initial reports.

Gabby and Torts couldn't get along. Lets face it, when you get paid 7.5 mil to be a goal scorer and you aren't scoring goals **** happens. I think this move could be good. We weren't gonna get a huge return for Gabs since he's so highly paid and so utterly useless right now.

We could amnesty Richards this summer and build around Nash and the young guys. Idk, I like the move but I don't at the same time. We will see

Here's the official salaries, so we do save salary cap savings this season and next:

Gaborik 2013 7,500,000 2014 7,500,000

Derik Brassard 2013 3,200,000 2014 3,200,000
Derek Dosett 2013 1,633,000 2014 1,400,000
John Moore 2013 995,000 2014 RFA

The 3 combine salaries add up to 5,828,000 this season and 4,600,000 next season with Moore a RFA.

So we fit Clowe's salary this season and save 2.9 million next season with Mac, Steps, Hags and Moore all as RFA's and Clowe UFA. With the cap coming down next year, it's likely we amnesty Richards.

Edit: Sauer is also a RFA next season!

Are you assuming because Howson drafted them they are bad players? John Moore was highly touted in his draft year, and is still progressing very well. We're actually getting him at the right point in his career. Here's a pre draft write up about him.

http://thehockeywriters.com/14-john-moore%E2%80%93-the-hockey-spy%E2%80%99s-2009-nhl-entry-draft-rankings/

He'll replace Eminger/Stralman on the 3rd pair IMO, but could possibly sneak into the second pair right now with Staal out

If this is true and we sent 2 young defensemen with Gabby, I'm liking this deal less and less each moment.

This was basically a trade of Gabby for Brassard!

We also get a defenseman in Moore that has been scratched the past 3-games, don't we have enough of those type of defensemen already?

Also, we get an injured gritty player that was the Blue Jackets worse plus minus player. When he's healthy is Torts really going to play him if he can't play defense? Then again, he's likely nothing more than a 4th line player anyway that wouldn't play much.

This seems more like a move to get anything we could because Gabby was as good as gone next season to amnesty.

We should have received higher than a 6th round draft pick in this deal!

I do not think it is sour grapes on your part. That line may have been very good for all we know. Some trades are easy to say oh man that was a great trade. These two trades are more tricky to determine the winners and losers. We will have to see how it all plays out. Hopefully Slats, the scouts and Torts know what they are doing. I think we got a few guys that can be legit assets. I also wish Gabs the best in Columbus. :)

The trade was made for 3 reasons 1. Gaboriks inconsistent play 2. The rangers needed depth 3. The cap, which is the most important reason. This season has been a debacle mostly because there's been no chemistry which you could attribute to the lockout and all the moves that were made. So the moves made over the last couple days were to be prepared for the future.

I played with and against both the Ferraro twins as well as their older brother. They were young when I knew them (around 13-14). Back then I could not tell much difference in their games. Everyone raved about them but I did not think they were that great at the time. I guess they proved me wrong. :)

I thought of Cherpy but I did not even want to bring him up. Cherneski really had some potential. He almost made the Rangers as a teenager.

Having proven talent is usually better than draft picks but come June it is nice to have some picks to have a chance at some young prospects. I would not be surprised to see Slats try to package some picks or make trades to gain more picks.

Basically if we had kept Mitchell,Prust,Feds,Rupp and Scott we wouldn't have needed Brassard,Clowe,Halpern,Powe and Asham. We needed to bring in Pyatt to take Dubinsky spot but that would have been it. True Gabby was gonna be moved regardless because Torts just didn't get along with him---not so much that he didn't produce because Richards isn't producing but Torts isn't on him and Richards isn't coming off shoulder surgery like Gabby.
But we could have moved Gabby for defensive help.

Besides l hated Rupps lack of speed and Feds taking stupid penalties. But I would have kept Mitchell and Prust tho'

I loved the Clowe trade from the beginning. He was exactly what this club needed and I compared him to Lucic. I was hoping to see him on the Gabby/Richards line because I was hoping he'd score in his first game.

Well Gabby got traded, but Clowe certainly didn't disappoint. I loved that fact that he was out there fronting the goalie on the PP. I just hope to see more of him, Boyle and Brassard on the PP. Of all the things to be happy about in last evening's game that was the one area I was most pleased with. We have been terrible on the PP and basically went 3 for 3. I don't really count the last PP because it was with our 4th line. Then again, how Powe missed that empty net from 2-feet out was amazing and we should have been 4 for 4.

It also appeared that either Boyle was energized by the new players or just by the fact that he wasn't traded. It would have been nice for Powe to get his first goal, but those 4 points Boyle had last night was a career high for him. I also liked how the defense got involved early and often during the rush last evening. It was great to see the special teams produce and get secondary scoring for once.

Brassard has some serious skills and I didn't know that his career had been slowed by a couple shoulder injuries. He actually might end up being worth the trade of Gabby by himself. I never liked the fact that our highest paid players couldn't produce during shoot outs, until we acquire Nash. Neither Gabby or Richards were very good on shoot outs and I'm being generous with that statement.

All said, I was very happy with last night's performance and hope it continues. I knew Clowe was a great add because it didn't cost us any current players or young prospects. I'm sure most people expected him to drop the gloves, but personally I was looking for him to score and him did. Moore's goal was a fluke, but I like his vision and skating ability. I already mentioned Brassard and can't wait to see if Dorsett can resemble anything similar to Prust's production.

Let's go Rangers!

I agree Brassard showed some really impressive skating and hands. It would be great if he could live up to his high draft position. He is still young.

Sly, Brassard was 11-4 on faceoffs. That's something we really need on this club, a reliable center that's great on the draw. Both Brassard and Moore can skate extremely well and Clowe hands are even better than I thought. It was certainly nice to see Boyle produce, he seems to be a much better player on the wing. I hope the balanced scoring continues!

I heard he had the game winning goal plus an assist on a Duby goal. I'm really happy for him. I do not follow the CBJ but I hope all the ex Rangers (Tyutin, Gabs, Duby, AA, Prospal, Erixon) have success there. :)

I wonder how many more Rangers will be plucked with Davidson now as the president of the Blue Jacket's operations now.

Even before he got there, they were the Columbus Rangers of the west.

Gaborik will play better in Columbus, he was a big ball of jittery nerves here under his own pressure added to the pressure of the fans, NY and the coach.

It is pretty cool that he can now root for both teams if he wants. We will probably see a lot of Gabs next season.

Dubi is a fat pig. He'll play hard for 10 games then vanish for the next 20. Their GM was dying to give his fat azzzz away but nobody wanted him.

Anytime somebody mentions Paul Coffey in a scouting report my eyes get big so I'm really hopeful about John Moore. Paul Coffey was one of the most amazing skaters I have seen. Did anyone see why John was already benched last night in the 2nd period?

I like john moore but it's unfair to compare him to Paul Coffey.

I was not comparing him to Paul Coffey. I was just stating what caught my eye in his scouting report.

Moore was benched again for the 3rd period last night. I hope he can stay confident.

Ya I realize that for sure wasn't directed at you, it was directed at whoever did the scouting report.
