Adam McQuaid Traded From Bruins To Rangers

Adam McQuaid Traded From Bruins To Rangers

The Rangers should have between $2.6 and $3.5 million in cap space available at the start of the year depending upon whether the team starts with seven or eight defensemen on the roster.

The Rangers have acquired defenseman Adam McQuaid from the Boston Bruins in exchange for defenseman Steven Kampfer, a 2019 fourth-round draft pick, and a conditional seventh-round pick. They allowed the fourth most goals of any team, 268. He played 32 games for NY over the past two years.

The Ann Arbor, Michigan native played four seasons of collegiate hockey at the University of Michigan from 2006-10 prior to turning pro. The last Ranger fourth-round pick to play in the National Hockey League was Dale Weise and he only played 10 games with the Rangers.

Hurricane Florence strengthens to Category 4, takes aim at Carolinas
Florence has maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour , though that number is likely to increase as the storm strengthens. At that point the storm was centered about 1,170 miles (1,880 km) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina , the NHC said .

Florence set to become major hurricane, aims at US Southeast
Forecasters urged residents from SC to the mid-Atlantic to get ready - and not just for a possible direct blow against the coast. SC and Virginia declared states of emergencies to give residents time to make preparations for the severe weather.

Mandatory evacuations ordered for entire SC coastline ahead of Hurricane Florence
The hurricane center said the storm is expected to strengthen and speed up as it approaches the Carolina coast in the coming days. All eyes are on Hurricane Florence and its path toward the Carolinas, but several other hurricanes are brewing as well.

Limited to 38 games largely because of a broken leg last season, McQuaid had one goal and three assists.

Adam McQuaid's ceiling is a bottom pairing defenseman. "McQuaid is tough, will be good in the room for the younger D". He made his first National Hockey League appearance with Boston in 2009-10, before becoming a mainstay on the team the following season, with three goals and a career-high 12 assists in 67 regular season appearances in 2010-11. The 31-year-old also tied for second-most hits per game in Bruins history (2.1). Giving up picks for a replaceable depth player doesn't make sense to me unless the Rangers see him in a bigger role this year.
