Hopefully he gets a great opportunity to play in NY. They allowed the fourth most goals of any team, 268. After finishing last in the Metropolitan Division the Rangers are trying to rebuild their defensive core.

The Boston Bruins have traded fan favorite and renowned tough guy Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers.

The Boston Bruins have traded veteran defenseman Adam McQuaid to the New York Rangers in exchange for defenseman Steven Kampfer and a pair of future draft picks, General Manager Don Sweeney announced Tuesday. In that year he was a plus 30, appearing in 67 games for the Bruins. He had three points over that time, as he's your essential borderline NHLer/seventh d-man role player. The Bruins won the Stanley Cup that season. Kampfer played in 48 National Hockey League games for the Bruins, scoring five times and adding seven assists. His last game played for the Rangers was February 11, 2018, in Winnipeg.

Essentially, fourth-round picks have little value so if you're able to flip them for a player you like you do it.

Additionally, all players will have access to recurring free in-game events that introduce challenging enemies and daily quests. Leaked in May and announced at E3, Assassin's Creed: Odyssey may be the last game you'd expect on Nintendo's hybrid console.

McQuaid's departure, however, alleviates a potentially complicated situation on defense as the B's enter what is bound to be a complicated, two-continent pre-season.

McQuaid, a 31-year-old defenseman, had four points (one goal, three assists) in 38 games for the Bruins last season. McQuaid played in all 12 of his team's playoff games, getting 13:19 per while recording a goal and assist while the Bruins were knocked out in the second round by Tampa Bay.

They may have been better suited signing someone like Johnny Oduya or taking a flier on Jordan Schmaltz and signing them to a PTO.

"It's tough to see him go", he said.
