Game Changer: Yandle acquired for J. Moore, Duclair and picks. Girardi Stays!
The details of the deal are now out and Dan Girardi is not involved. The deal per Nick Kypreos is John Moore, Anthony Duclair and multiple draft picks for Keith Yandle.
Apologies to Girardi. Told he is now not expected in the deal. It’s Moore , Duclair and mult’draft picks. #NHLtrade. #Rangers #Coyotes.

This is a GO FOR THE CUP move by Slats. There is no ifs ands or buts about it. Declair will be a star, but a defense of Yandle, McDonagh, Staal, Girardi, Klein and Boyle is literally a game changer for the playoffs.
If the Rangers can re-sign Zuccarello and a depth forward this could be the biggest coup of the NHL trade deadline.
