  • Reports Bruins Trying To Trade For Rangers Rick Nash

After the New York Rangers traded Nash to the Bruins on Sunday morning, the left winger was stymied by goalie Chad Johnson as the Buffalo Sabres earned an easy 4-1 victory against Boston on Sunday evening at KeyBank Center in Buffalo, N.Y.

The Rangers acquired Spooner, forward Matt Beleskey, defenseman Ryan Lindgren and a 2019 seventh-round pick from the Bruins on Sunday in exchange for forward Rick Nash. He also helped Team USA during their gold and bronze medal runs at the World Juniors in the last two years. There are few players in the National Hockey League who can single-handedly change a team's Stanley Cup futures.

Pouliot, who could potentially be moved before Monday's 3 p.m. trade deadline, scored for just the fourth time since January and now has three goals in the month of February.

"It was a odd last few weeks in NY, but I've moved on and I'm excited about this opportunity", he said.

Don Sweeney did give up a haul to get his man, but Nash will make it up to Boston Bruins fans and help his team make a strong bid for the Stanley Cup.

"I wasn't going to hold them hostage or anything like that, but I wanted to go to a place that wanted me and a place that had a chance to win, " he said. On the Boston Bruins, I think he's nearly a ideal fit for Bruce Cassidy's system.

A two-time All-Star, the forward has 289 goals and 299 assists in 1,006 games over 15 seasons with the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens and Sabres.

An aging core and injuries have put the Rangers in sell mode this month, with NY sitting eight points out of a playoff spot with a record of 27-30-5.

In anticipation of trading Nash, the Rangers had the forward sit out their past two games to avoid the possibility injury.

NY might not be done dealing with captain Ryan McDonagh also considered to be on the trading block.

This season he has 28 points in 60 games.

As for the price, we know what Ryan Spooner is and he may hit his stride with the Rangers or elsewhere and become a 20-goal scorer or 70-point producers.

The deal allowed NY to add much-needed youth. He was Boston's second round pick in the 2010 draft and can become a restricted free agent at the end of his current one-year deal. Lindgren was selected by Boston in the second round of the 2016 draft and now is playing his sophomore season at the University of Minnesota.

If Boston wants to include Beleskey and/or have NY eat a ton of cap space, then a first rounder must be involved and the names listed by McKenzie improved.
