Steal for the Rangers, especially if Jokinen can return his game back to where it was.

Kotalik and Higgins were essentially dead weight. Well, Kotalik was dead weight - Higgins was a free agent at the end of the season and wasn't returning anyway. Jokinen is also a free agent at the end of the season, definitely would rather have Jokinen for the remainder of the year.

The fans will love Prust.

I like the trade, not because they are going to go from a possible 8th seeded team to a cup contender with this deal, but because they got rid of Kotalik's $6 million for the next two years. They are right up against the cap and they need all the room under the cap they can get. Now, if only Sather can get rid of Drury AND Redden AND Rozsival. I know that will never happen but Ranger fans can only hope. Gainey did take Gomez off of the Rangers hands.

Steal for the Rangers. Someone took your mistake off of your hands in Kotalik.
