Rangers Roundup: Trading DeAngelo, prospect update, and more news
Larry Brooks is at it again! Yesterday, he posted his Slap Shots article which was solely focused on the Rangers having to trade Tony DeAngelo because of Nils Lundkvist.
Rangers need to trade DeAngelo
According to Brooks, “a contract of longer than one year for DeAngelo would all but ensure losing 20-year-old righty defenseman Nils Lundkvist to unrestricted free agency on June 2, 2022, without ever getting the Swede to Broadway.”
While this is a possibility, it remains likely an extremely low one to happen. Brooks also ignores the fact that Tony DeAngelo could still be traded after signing his next deal if the Rangers were afraid of such a scenario. Later today I will have a full feature on this.
I had a brief exchange with DeAngelo who joked, “[Brooks] always tries trading me.” That was followed up by his Podcast account asking fans for their opinions.
