On Sportsnet Radio, Columbus President John Davidson talked about how the Marian Gaborik trade developed.
JD said that the two sides were talking and that when the topic switched to Gaborik, the Rangers said that they wouldn’t move him unless they got the right package in return.
After some discussion, JD said that the two sides agreed on a package that worked for both teams. JD said that he thinks it is a trade that will be good for both the Rangers and Blue Jackets.
JD also said that he was happy that the former Columbus players were able to make such an immediate impact with the Rangers last night.
