Rangers Trade Aaron Voros to Ducks for Steve Eminger

As first reported by Arthur Staple at Newsday via Twitter, the Rangers traded Aaron Voros (and Ryan Hiller) to the Anaheim Ducks for Steve Eminger. Voros, who started off his Ranger career like a scoring machine at the beginning of the 2009 season, has become expendable with the addition of a more talented Brandon Prust. Sean Avery & Henrik Lunqvist will miss their 3rd Musketeer in their revelry

Eminger is 26, and signed through next season for a salary of $1.125 million, or about 2/3 less than what the Rangers decided to pay Dan Girardi today. He is on his 5th team and is paid like defenseman should be who is at the bottom of the roster.

Presumably, the Rangers are in the process of looking to take care of Marc Staal. You get the feeling that one of the overpaid defensemen will be going soon. Right now, without further moves, there appears to be something in the neighborhood of $4.5 million to take care of Staal.

What's in your closet? Sweater #6 for this guy.
With the fact that Kovlachuk is still unsigned, a couple of roster moves could open up some cap space. I have some thoughts on that which I will share later.
