This is a great time to be alive Rangers fans! This tweet sent NYR fans buzzing:

What it shows are two trades moving the Islanders and the Rangers up into the 1st round. Is this true? Blueshirt Banter believes this is just a board test should a deal transpire but I offer another theory.
The NHL loves a good show and know that many fans watch the Draft for blockbuster trades. So what if these are done deals that the NHL has requested all teams involved to wait until tomorrow night to announce???
If this is the case, you would have to assume the Rangers have possibly moved one of their RFA’s or more to the Bruins for that pick. I guess, you will all have to wait and see until tomorrow.
