Rangers trading for Adam McQuaid is a little confusing

Bruins trade Adam Mc Quaid to Rangers             Tuesday

On Tuesday morning, the team announced it has traded Adam McQuaid to the Rangers for defenseman Steven Kampfer, a fourth-round pick and a conditional seventh-round pick. He had 15 points (three goals, 12 assists).

His best year came in 2010-2011 as a 24-year-old the Bruins.

However, the soon-to-be-32-year-old veteran has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and had likely been bumped down to eighth defenseman status after the Bruins acquired John Moore this offseason.

"It's a very hard day", Boston general manager Don Sweeney said. "We want to thank Adam".

"It's tough to see him go".

One of the greatest catalysts for the New York Rangers' rapid decline down the Metropolitan Division standings last season was the defense. He played 32 games for NY over the past two years.

The Rangers should have between $2.6 and $3.5 million in cap space available at the start of the year depending upon whether the team starts with seven or eight defensemen on the roster.

Kampfer, 29, has skated in 166 career National Hockey League games, including one previous stint with the Bruins in 2010-11, during which he helped the team win the Stanley Cup.

General manager Don Sweeney and head coach Bruce Cassidy on Tuesday both expressed how hard it was to move the 31-year-old, and it appears the sentiment is shared amongst the players, especially those who played with McQuaid for a long time.
