Wojtek Wolski traded to Florida

Wojtek Wolski has been to Florida in exchange for young defenceman Mike Vernace and a third round pick.
Wolski, 26, only played 9 games this year for New York and had 3 points. He spent the rest of the season in the minors.

Alson: I have to go with the Rangers. Wolski is in the minors for a reason and a third round pick was all he was really worth. However, I still give Wolski credit. He is absolutely amazing in shootouts and this move gives him a fresh start. I am also hearing maybe the Wolski trade is only a precursor.. Time will tell.

Wexler: I think Rangers won this deal only for one purpose. The fact that they dumped Wolskis's contract on another unlucky team, Florida!!!

Mahbod: Rangers are the winners. Wolski just wasn't fitting in and I don't see how he would fit in with Florida either. Vernace is a good puck-moving offensive defenceman and that third round pick is a nice tradeable asset.

Kyle: Florida, since this could be Wolski's wake up call. His ice time has dwindled ever since he arrived at MSG. A change of scenery and more ice time will do Wojtek good and he will put up more points with the Panthers.
