TSN said the Stars told them Brad Richards is not being dealt.
The Rangers got center John Mitchell from Toronto, in a very, very minor deal, for a seventh-round pick. He’s probably headed to the Whale.
thanks carp lol
are you guys experiencing very slow response from the blog?
yep, a little slow!
holy crap finally! 10 minutes it took me
I can read now!
I couldn’t reload until now, Carp
Carp, yes, blog is VERY SLOW!
Real_ESPNLeBrun Pierre LeBrun
Brad Richards via text at 2:55 p.m. ET , ``nothing going on.’‘
Way slow, I thought it was me , slow typer
:02! Oh, the suspense!!
I’m fine with it. We can move on now.
not anymore carp…..
It’s almost over! If the Rangers don’t do anything, will we still hear the great Oz speak?
Regardless of whether we acquire Richards in the next thirty minutes or so or not, one thing seems pretty obvious, he’ll likely sign with us in the Summer.
Unless the Stars can re-sign him.
lmao @ The Great Oz
you can still make trades after 3:00 though. happens all the time…
Was Sather fired? I felt a movement in the force…
So how many deals will come after the deadline
3.00 pm shut down
Did we get Stastny?
It’s over. That’s OK with me.
TSN said last year they got trade calls all the way thru 4:30 – 5:00pm last year
NO RICHARDS! WOOOO!
WE HAVE A (NOT REALLY) A LIFT OFF!
Oh come on guys! Just when I starting to relax!!!!
Jon Mitchell to NYR!!! LOL
...AAAAAAAAND back to work – see yas later, Boneheads! =)
rangers get john mitchell
Jon Mitchell to the New York Rangers per TSN. Who is Jon Mitchell?
The trades just need to be in to the NHL by 3, not approved or finalized. I think that’s why there is a lag time in announcing, etc.
so, how long do we wait to confirm whether or not a deal was made? I dont suppose there is anywhere that will post deals in the works or even deals that are up for approval…?
John Mitchell to NYR
Rangers get John Mitchell from Toronto.
who the hell is john mitchell??
Glen Sather owes me $80
Who the hell is John Mitchell?
I believe the idea is that if the teams are working out a deal they can contact the league to ask for a small extension to smooth out the details. We aren’t completely done with the deals yet, folks.
You know what? Even with the quiet deadline day, I’d take this trade season filled with franchise-altering trades every few days than one day filled with deals for rental players.
yeah last year there were trades still going late into the evening… so we have at least hour and a half or two hours more
LOL Wicky! great minds…
not even WILLIE mitchell…JOHN MITCHELL????? WHAT???
he is a 3rd or 4th line forward who is a depth move at best. I doubt they gave up more then a 7th round pick for him
john mitchell for gaborik?
I’d be more pleased by Joni Mitchell playing on the 4th line.
Sounds like he’s CT bound. And not Willie Mitchell.
lmao at “who is john mitchell” comments
who is this guy??
Can we get Keith Richards instead?
John Mitchell to NYR – schedule the parade !
I can’t wait for the Slats conference call!
who da schmuck is John Mitchell?
The Rangers got Joni Mitchell???????
Wait, the Rangers signed Joni Mitchell? But she’s so scrawny.
I’m assuming this trade isn’t worth a new post?
wow he’s got 2 more goals than captain broken finger! he must be good!
its actually joni mitchell, she is replacing amorante…
John Mitchell is the nephew of Glen Sather assistants mother-in-law´s brother :)
John Mitchell traded to the team he had his one and only decent career game against. – Down Goes Brown
That must be why. Remember remember the first of November 2008?
sounds like it went down to the wire with jonny mitchell
LMFAO @ MARK!! awesome post
see guys…Rod was right Mitchell is coming to NY!
he just forgot to mention it was different Mitchell
Mitchell is a journeyman forward who could not even make this year,s version of the Toronto maple Loaves
Why’s everyone so excited about Joni Mitchell? Did we trade John Amirante for her or something?
Arnott to the Caps
DarrenDreger Darren Dreger
7th rounder from NYR for Mitchell
Caps get Arnott. not bad.
Jason Arnott is traded to Washington in exchange for David Steckel saying multple sources …
Stop the presses!!!! I love how nobody knows who this guy is :) and that includes me…...
John Boom Boom Mitchell?
lin – Are too
was there a point to that trade??? seriously…
anyone know what we gave up for this clown?
Caps doing pretty good today. Wideman, and Arnott. Useful.
at least the Whale has been taken care of!
So barring anything in the next half hour or so.. Sather stood pat.
so, the caps and Kings did something. and we got Joni Mitchell to sing
Now we are primed for a cup run with this guy!!!!!
He also had a two-point game against us last season.
Mitchell career stats vs. NYR (no games this season): 8 games, 4 goals, 4 assists, +6, 14 SOG
AGrossRecord Andrew Gross
First two of newly-acquired John Mitchell’s 20 NHL goals came against the Rangers on Nov. 1, 2008
the Whale are currently 8th in the east and need some guys for their playoff push. Mitchell will probably replace Newbury whom will go back to HFD.
a red nose and some big assen shoes
Are you sure he’s not Chris Higgins?
john mitchell, the former attirney general under richard nixon has been traded to the ny rangers…...john dean also traded for a 6th rd pick
steckel for arnottwould be a good move for the debbies. steckel a great face off man….....
sather: hello Dallas?
burke: no douche, Tor…
sather: oh allright, I need to get top line center
burke: how about my boy johny mitchell?
sather: done, say hello to sjo and orr
lmao @ Are too
wait, didn’t iBob have Richards coming?
spent all day refreshing different hockey pages and all i got was John Mitchell!
We keep the kids and our 1st round pick!
it’s all Water-gate under the bridge
i spelled that wrong…
he is a 3rd or 4th line forward who is a depth move at best. I doubt they gave up more then a 7th round pick for him”
That’s pretty impressive dude. They actually did give up a seventh rounder for the guy.
This is an insanely boring deadline. That’s for sure.
lmfao attorney general under richard nixon, you’re killin me
It’s a classic Sather trade for a guy who plays his best games against the NYR.
did we really need John Mitchell? wtf?
John Mitchell- Attorney General under Nixon?
What next Rangergate?
yea Carp… ibob said Richards to NYR imminent
also had Nashville working deal for Hemsky/Smid
Wow, Slats just “put up a parking lot!”
I really need to type faster…
I guess Uncle Glennie didn’t want to be left out of the game.
this deadline day makes me really tired..getting sleepery…
followed Carp with a good lunch in eating a rabbit…..
Pizza Infusio wasn´t available :)
Jon Mitchell, Mount Vernon kid playing hoops at Rutgers.
Are you guys exhaling yet … or still waiting official word?
ibob now says Sather didn’t want to give up Anisimov, so no deal done.
Tom Sestito for Greg Moore!!!!
LMAO, Gab. That was at 10 AM
well… i guess we’re going into playoffs (hopefully) with whatever we got PLUS John Mitchell
according to keith jones, dallas will resign brad richards
we couldve had Kovalev for 7th round pick
yea… so much for that iminent call…
Didn’t iBob also have Hemsky to the Kings as a done deal?
Maybe Dallas couldn’t move Richards because Rod was in possession of their target list?
Greg Moore is on the Isles now, right? Bob McKenzie said NYR.
ahh Orr, you almost had me.
TSN says the Rangers gave up a 7th round pick for Mitchell
for what its worth John Mitchell is 55.7% on faceoffs this year…
I have to say that I’m relieved!
now, who the hell is tom sestito….a lot of minor guys going, is there another deal coming that moves a couple of bodies??
Oh, Moore is on PHI apparently, in Adirondack. Don’t be fooled. lol
Well that was anti-climactic. Back to work…
55.7% is a nice stat for this team, maybe he sees some 4th line minutes?
I told you the Rangers were not going to win the Cup this year, and now Slats goes and makes an ass of me! Rangers to win finals in four games!
Greg Moore is on the Tampa Bay..no?
WTB? Newbury, Zukes, and McD were sent down today in case we got Richards…wow, it really must have been close….
Just think, Carp, you could have been really doing something today. Beats raking snow off the roof, right?
With what, Dood?
Hey, didn’t Slats do the same thing last year? His first deadline move was Newberries, or someone?
Rangers assigned MZA, McD, and Newbury to the minors to free cap space for Richards.
for what its worth John Mitchell is 55.7% on faceoffs this year
Yeah he’s won like 5 out of 9….

CBJ trades Tom Sestito to NYR for Greg Moore and Michael Chaput. Minor-league transacti

lin – glad you like my humor :)
HIGGINS TO VANCOUVER! The former Rangers parade continues!!!!
Well, Rod should be along with his trade day inside info any time now… 20-20 hindsight.
Did we just get Joni Mitchell? I thought she was retired.
Sather thought it was Winchell. he wanted more donuts
What´s the record for comments in the same minute ????
Higgins to Vancouver.
Modin to Calgary.
mitchell trade is irrrelevant.
good news the rangers core of young studs are still there, top prospects are still in college,jrs., or in the minors….
added mccabe who is better then emminger and that will help. still not enough scoring have to grind and bang there way into the playoffs.
btw florida is now a minor league team….......
Tom Sestito??? I guess Sather was missing this guy from “Collect them all” barely 4th line player collection….
Is it time to exhale yet?
This was a successful deadline. There was nobody out there of great value. Nobody available was going to help us win the Cup this year or help us in the future. Besides Stastny.
Bah. What a letdown.
Florida is really a fan of those third-round picks huh?
Rod knew about all the trades that happened today … and ever.
Tom Sestito! wooooo! wait… who?
TReedDispatch Thomas Reed
RT @TSNBobMcKenzie: CBJ trades Tom Sestito to NYR for Greg Moore and Michael Chaput. Minor-league transaction.
Higgins to Vancouver probably the longest move possible :)
Sestitos. they go great with salsa
That piece of news does not please me.
got carped out the yingyang
with all the tweets on previous post
people are up to date
John Mitchell’s notes from NHL.com
My question is: Why bother with this guy?
– Assigned to the Toronto Marlies (AHL) Feb. 10. – Has been a healthy scratch 16 times this season. – Missed 15 games (Jan. 3-Feb. 5) due to knee injury. – Injured knee in practice Jan. 2. – Scored a goal in back-to-back games (Dec. 20, 26). – Collected an assist Nov. 3 at WSH. – Made season debut Oct. 23 at PHI. – Was a healthy scratch in six-straight games to start the season (Oct. 7-21).
Someone on TSN just said Higgins “is supposed to be a skilled player”. Sounds about right.
someone made a mistake. Chaput and Greg Moore are with the Flyers
Time to go to….
very witty EddieCubed
why is everyone so happy that we did not deal for richards… yes we would lose prospects but as of tomorrow we couldve had Richards in the line up over Anisimov….
CCC-at least he’s rested…
The Arnott Caps thing. Turns out you were actually telling the truth for once.
So Mitchell is a Prucha???
i think that sesisto trade doesn’t involve the Rangers.
Shaggy goes to teh Canucks lol
Arnott to Capitals.
AGrossRecord Andrew Gross
If it wasn’t obvious already, Mitchell trade will be it for Rangers, no other deals pending trade calls with NHL.
Maybe Hemsky is coming?
i trade aa and 2 picks for richards if they could have signed him.
the rangers would have been better for sure…
of course he did, Carp! never had a doubt!
i bet there is more to know that Rod knows already but wont let us know that because if he did let us know the people that let him know all this exclusive news will no longer want to let he know in the future so Rod wont jeopardize anything he knows now so he can know more in the future.
Wow at the news that MZA, McDonagh and Newbury were being sent down to clear room for Richards.
Must’ve been very close. I wonder what the Rangers final offer was?
Carp- can you confirm if/whether the Rangers are done?
LMAO at Mama. Mitchell is a Prucha! LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
True, well, he might not have been available because of concussions, and his contract would have to be extended, and they would have given up an awful lot to get him when maybe they can get him for just money July 1.
That’s why. But I thought that had all been established.
yea BOB got the team wrong lol… tsk tsk tsk
Mitchell is a Whale lol
Well then, I guess it’s safe for me to go out in the world and run some errands. Bravo Carp on another great picnic!!!!
I’ve asked. still awaiting word.
Artoo to Capitals..
Mr. Mitchell, welcome to Reddenville.
I’m happy with today. I didn’t want any kids getting traded.
Although, I guess Del Z will spend the rest of the year in Connecticut.
I really thought Gilroy would be moved.
not a trade, but chris dreary, sent through a black hole….time/space warp and returns circa 1999…..
nice work carp, thanks
Yup. Now they’re done.
NYDNRangers Jesse Spector
No NHL additions for #NYR. McDonagh and Zuccarello remain with team, but are moved to AHL roster today to be eligible for playoffs there
Nice no ants picnic, Carp.
great work today, Carp. Thanks for your hard work.
Mitchell is ahead of Drury by two goals already.
Caps add Sturm, Arnott, and Wideman. now we can only beat them 5-2 instead of 6-0
I still think Gilroy is going to be traded at the draft, maybe for a 4th round pick or something like that.
Well that suspense sapped any energy I had to be able to work the rest of the day.
OK. Break it up. Nothing to see here…...
was it worth missing a day of work?
yes, yes it was. easy to make up most of the time lol!
Nooooo! This day was going so well and they’ve sent MZA down! WTB!!!!
Can’t wait to hear how close we were to a Richards deal.
I don’t think it will be as good as the apparent Stamkos deal.
Slats will probably brag just as much though.
NYP_Brooksie Larry Brooks
Told Stars never came down on demand/request for Richards. Rangers no choice but to wait until July
I wasn’t anxious. I knew that no huge deals were being made by the Rangers this year. Do I sound like Rod now? I believe Sather finally understands the concept of building for the future, and he’s made the right decisions this year, sans the concussed Booger.
paperwork transaction, he’s not going anywhere
Mama – He’s not being sent down to the Whale. It’s just a paper move. Relax! Goosefrabba!
wicky, phew! thanks….I was afraid I may go postal at the post office…..OK all, gotta run…later!
FIRE SATHER! He don’t do nothin’.
Black Hawks on Versus tonight!
TSN has us trading Greg Moore. Leave it to Sather to trade some other team’s players.
thanks too tiki…..
No, the transaction was so that McDonagh and Zuccarello and Newbury can play in the AHL playoffs if the Rangers don’t make it, or if they’re eliminated before the Whale.
Must have been a long day for AA and some others. I doubt anybody really wants to be traded.
Go Blackhawks, Olga!
I am so glad Artie wasn’t traded. He has so much potential for a 2nd year NHL’er. Slats did the right thing today. Don’t be fooled. The old Sather would have traded the farm for a player like Richards. Torts definitely had a hand in this…
Go Black Hawks! Tiki
has a sense of calm settled over Rangers Nation?
just got hoem from work. lmao u guys stayed home from work to see us get john mitchell?? wtb?
or Boneheads Universe?
breathe in breathe out….
going to work tomorrow and requesting July 1 off!!! zoom!
That was the most boring deadline ever.
Little known fact about John Mitchell he’s Jon Voight’s brother-in-law he went to Orthodontics school with Tim Whatley – I just bought his car.
and thank gretzky we didnt get richards. like he was gonna get us anywhere this year. good job slats. i wouldnt even sign him in the offseason. hes just getting older and will be drury #2. its a good day heads!
Well said, Carp.
Well think back to 1996 with Gretzky- the Rangers knew they could get him for nothing but money as a UFA, so he was traded to STL. The Rangers must know now that Richards will sign with them and only them on July 1 and if that’s the case then no reason to yield young assets for him. Sather stayed the course and hopefully we will all be rewarded for it.
way to take one for the team linda, good luck tomorrow!
If Stars wanted Anisimov or Grachev, good to not make the trade.
Listen, Mitchell’s best games were against the Rangers. Therefore, we have to have him.
linda, why take a day off for july 1st? dont u wanna wait as long as possible for potential bad news! ha j/k hun
Really was the most boring deadline.
while it may have been boring, it was definitely pleasing to this fan….
stack overflow at line 0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bada bing.
Rangers get Tom Sestito. 6’5” 230 lb winger with 200+ PIM’s in minors, only 24 and has potential. Good move.
DJ, I doubt they know that. But the price was too high.
so who went where guys? was there any other noteworthy trades around teh league?
Carp, that’s why the call it a DEADline.
now for some lobster bisque soup…
Matthias – Belated, but LOL! I wish there was some way to get European News and stuff. The television media over there is so much more professional than the media here (the Bill O’Reillys – who is a Yankees fan – Nancy Graces, and John Buccigrosses of the world)
Whoops, he went to Flyers, my mistake.
flyers got him, we didn’t
Mike, that move was with the Flyers
grabby, lmao.. 4 day weekend that way!!
Flyers got Sestito, not the Rangers.
This deadline was so boring, I couldn’t even come up with fake trades.
Boring, yes. Successful, yes. This is what we all wanted. To build for the future. Thanks, Glen.
no worries mike! its all bob mckenzies fault for his typo lol
“Rangers get Tom Sestito. 6’5” 230 lb winger with 200+ PIM’s in minors, only 24 and has potential. Good move.”
Yeah sure sounds like a good move. When is this team going to get off of the big guys adding toughness to the team and realize they need skilled players who can actually score? There are plenty of tough guys on this team right now: Cally, Prust, Boyle, Dubi, Avery Sauer to name a few are all willing to go take a few punches for their teammates.
Dustin Penner went to the Kings
Arnott to the Caps
Chris, relax, we got John Mitchell and a bag of pucks. Nothing to pull your hair out over…
Carp, I’d take this whole trade season (with multiple franchise-altering trades) with a boring deadline today over a non-existent trade season coupled with an exciting deadline day full of playoff rental trades.
Mike, you’re kidding, right? The Flyers got him. McKenzie messed up earlier.
Well Slats didn’t make any huge moves, but he did give us four more months to endlessly speculate how the Rangers will make room to sign Brad Richards on July 1st!
NHL.com says Rangers got Sestito ??
February 28, 2011
New York Rangers acquire:
Columbus Blue Jackets acquire:
Is it July 1st yet?
NHL.com is stealing from McKenzie, like everybody else today, but McKenzie has admitted he was wrong … Sestito to Flyers.
to cry or to be happy?
that is the question!
Doodie, but I always enjoyed rush I got from the frantic deadline days when there were 45 deals made and teams got all cranked up for the playoffs. Maybe it’s the newsman in me.
got to get rid of Drury. that is job #1
Thanks for clearing that up Carp.
Now I’ll cancel my Sestito jersey.
John Mitchell traded for the Rangers 2011 7th round draft pick… Didn’t the Rangers already trade this draft pick at last year trade deadline day (along with Miika Wiikman) for Anders Erikson?
being Rangers fan is confusing…
What Joni Mitchell song should we listen to in honor of today’s barely active Trade Deadline?
This trade deadline day was so boring. I felt like I was watching a Devils game.
Weak deadline overall but remember McCabe filled the biggest need we had (Defenseman with a rocket from the point) that could realistically be filled this season without surrendering the motherlode. Could have pursued another scorer but it seems none were available and I wouldn’t have given what the Kings gave for Penner considering his cap hit next season.
I think Richards signs with us on 7/1/11 regardless. Next season will be better with him and possibly Kreider and Thomas up from a talent perspective.
incarceratedbob incarcerated bob
Disappointed with the NHL Trade Deadline – Source had the Arnott trade / Missed on the Richards (Sather actually should have pulled trigger)
Valium TV Blue!
you are correct, its a 2012 draft pick
Some of the best trades are the ones not made.
i hope if anything, that anisimov starts scoring now. slats put alot of confidence in him. better start improving artie.
Boring deadline. Kings got hosed for Penner. We got Martha Mitchell.
Oh happy day!
We kept the kids!
since you asked, some appropriate Joni Mitchell titles:
All I Want.
Don’t Go to Strangers (this might be the winner).
Sweet Sucker Dance.
Nothing Can Be Done.
The Last Time I Saw Richard(s) (seriously, these are all legit titles).
The Wizard of Is.
There are a zillion of them.
Let’s hope that’s not the song the play for John Mitchell.
Rangers conference call around 4:30. Maybe Sather will shed some light on the day’s events. I’ll blog with live quotes and paraphrases.
Carp, dont forget big yellow taxi :)
Thanks Carp. Great job as always.
...one of my faves.
NYR—What if that was his pysch up song? I would not be excited to have him on any team affiliated with the Rangers. He obviously wouldn’t have a lot of jam.
dane byers is not on rangers anymore?
was traded for Newbury.
Great ones Carp!
I will personally take the Janet Jackson and Q Tip song that sampled Joni Mitchell…
Q-Tip: “Joni Mitchell Never lies.”
Thanks, Carp! Anti-climactic day, so far.
Manfried – Neither would I! Carp is hilarious!!
Miked – Yep. Byers wanted out of the organization after Grachev was recalled in the beginning of the season. We got Kolarik for him…
John Mitchell= Alex Kovalev ??
thanks NYRFan. totally forgot about that one
Thanks oleosmirf! Hey Carp… Even though we’re all mostly east coaster’s on this site, “California” has to on the Joni Mitchell top 10 list!
Got to appreciate that sather didn’t slip this yr. He’s on the right path now.
yes, Kolarik. I was wrong about Newbury.
Tiki – the song for you, although not Joni Mitchell, is “Heroes” by David Bowie.
didn’t Joni Mitchell write the song “woodstock” ?
She wrote it from some ideas given to her by her boyfriend at the time Graham Nash.
http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=67535&navid=DL|TOR|home WOW What a deal Injury John Mitchell- looks like a real keeper- Why bother
Guys, we were talking about Joni Mitchell songs that were appropriate to the events (or non events) of the day.
http://twitter.com/mirtle/statuses/42333057801392129 More on big John
Did I get off topic? That would really expose my ADD since I started the silly topic. Sorry Carp.
You’re right, Manfried! And the movie for me is “Everyone’s Hero!” LOL :)
middling prospects!? lol
paved paradie and put up a parking lot…ooooooohhhh la la la la…or was that carole king???....Arnott?
You love heroes.
Hogan’s Heroes can be your TV show.
Your phone must be the HTC Hero…...You must love the Jet Li film “Hero” (and so on and so forth into the eternal sunset that is hilarity).
Prust did not sign off on the Richards deal.
prust is the man…
Wow! The Wild got Penner!...Jeff Penner.
biron fractured collarbone?
Did Biron get injured blocking a shot, too?
