Looking to bounce back from 3 consecutive losses, the New York Rangers have traded for Anaheim’s troubled D Sandis Ozolinsh in exchange for a 3rd round draft choice.
A 7-time NHL All-Star, Ozolinsh was recently reinstated after a 6 week stay in rehab after violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Though I’m pretty sure he wasn’t jealous of Mark McGwire.
Boston has traded W Sergei Samsonov to Edmonton in exchange for C Marty “Don’t Call Me Harry” Reasoner and Yan Stasny. If you can remember all the way back to October of 2005, the Bruins briefly employed players who were making real money.
