Grading the Rangers Deadline Day grades all 30 teams on their deadline day...

New York Rangers: Added forwards Olli Jokinen and Brandon Prust on Feb. 2, tough guy Jody Shelley on Feb. 12, defenseman Anders Eriksson and minor league forward Kris Newbury on Wednesday; dealt away Ales Kotalik and Chris Higgins on Feb. 2. Picked up Alex Auld on waivers. Again, a bubble team that didn't have the luxury of really paying out young assets for rental players. Trending: Sideways.

While Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy added this...

New York Rangers: Already made their epic move in acquiring Olli Jokinen before the Olympics, and tweaked the lineup with defenseman Anders Eriksson from the Coyotes. Another team whose bed was made well before the deadline. GRADE: B-

...i'm actually real happy with Sather's inactivity yesterday. He didn't overpay to bring in a big name like Kaberle or Hamhuis and more importantly didn't trade away Dubinsky who's name was in almost every Rangers rumor all year.
