Bruins trade defenseman Adam McQuaid to Rangers

Bruins trade defenseman Adam McQuaid to Rangers

A spare roster part for stretches of last season and pegged for more of the same in 2018-19, Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was dealt Tuesday morning to NY, where the 31-year-old back liner will be expected to log ample playing minutes on a Rangers team in rebuild mode.

The 31-year-old was limited to just 38 games this past season, putting up one goal and three assists.

The B's received Steven Kampfer, a journeyman defenseman who played for them previously (48 games over 2010-11 and '11-12), appeared in only 33 National Hockey League games over the past two seasons, and is not expected to compete for a position on the team.

For his career, he has played in 462 games registering 13 goals and 53 points.

After being traded by the Anaheim Ducks in March of 2010, Kampfer spent three seasons in the Bruins organization, bouncing back and forth between Providence and Boston.

The company also touted its own fresh four-core GPU design that purports to be as much as 50% faster than the part in the A11. Apple didn't immediately say how much the Max will cost, but it's expected to top the iPhone X's $1,000 starting price.

Is it illegal to post fake TripAdvisor reviews?
An online fraudster who sold fake TripAdvisor reviews to hospitality businesses has been jailed after a "landmark ruling". For what is believed to be the first time, a person has been sent to jail for writing fake reviews online.

Bruins GM Don Sweeney made the announcement Tuesday morning. The news has hit social media and reactions have pretty much stated the same thing: the Bruins lost a tough player. He helped the team win the 2011 Stanley Cup and make it to the 2013 final. "Today was a tough morning. we'll miss him".

Kampfer, who turns 30 on September 24, had one assist in 22 games for the Rangers last season.

The Rangers gave up veteran Steven Kampfer as a part of the deal. The Bruins also acquired two picks (a fourth-rounder and a conditional seventh-rounder) in next June's draft. "10 years we've been together, going back to Providence", added Cassidy.

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.
