Adam Rotter: This was to be expected with the Rangers playing three games in four nights and the deadline on Monday afternoon. Whether either, or both, players are traded today, tomorrow or on Monday at 2:59PM, it makes no sense to risk potentially injury in these games. I expected one or both to be gone in the three days leading up to tonight's game but Nick Holden was the only player to move. We have known that both were going to be traded, now it's more or less confirmed and now the only remaining part is where they go and who the Rangers get back.
