Jokinen and Prust for Higgins and Kotalik
I'll be honest unless there is another trade coming this makes no sense to me. (Kovalchuk? Lecavalier?)
Ales Kotalik had to waive his very limited no trade clause to make this happen. His NTC basically has three teams on the list, the Calgary Flames were one of those teams.
Ales Kotalik is not a fit in the 'Sutter system' so unless he is moving on in another deal I can't figure it out.
Ranger fan you had better be excited. I think you are getting a very good center, and a heart and soul player in Brandon Prust.
If this is not a precursor to another trade then it is time for the Sutter's to hit the road.
