In a bold move signifying New York Rangers management hasn’t given up on the season, Glen Sather acquired Ryane Clowe from the San Jose Sharks. A prototypical hard nosed old school Patrick Division player, Clowe is a welcome addition to a team that saw a lot of heart leave with the unaffordable Brandon Prust. Going the other way a second round pick a third and a fifth if he doesn’t reup, and another second replacing the fifth if he reups. Not a bad price for the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Clowe, who brings a rugged fearless approach to the game that will endear him to the faithful in a hurry.
The Rangers just got a whole lot better.
