Rangers land Peverley and Wingels

After talking some weeks, the Detroit Red Wings and the New York Rangers, hammered out a trade today:

To Detroit:
Bryan Little + Louis Leblanc
To Rangers:
Rich Peverley + Tommy Wingels + det 2nd 2014 + det 5th 2014

Rangers GM Matt Kaminski tried to explain his intentions:
"We were working many days about this. The deal has many facettes and different approachings. First of all, we lose a young player in Bryan Little who was always a tremendous guy to our franchise. He has a lot of potential and losing him can hurt us in the future. But we decided to stick with Rich Peverley for the next 2,5 seasons. Not only we think Peverley will be a much better passer to our scoring wingers Vrbata and Kane, he also posseses a great contract (1,3 Mill per year). That was a huge fact too. The next part of the trade was the switch of Leblanc and Wingels. Louis is a good guy, but if he wont turn the corner soon, his tremendous skill wont pan out. But he has all the possibilities to turn into a valuable top-9 forward in the NHL. Wingels already is more proven and plays solid minutes on San Joses 3rd line. He has also a great 400k contract. So we saved a total of about 1,6 Mil in salaries. That gives us a lot of room when the deadline approaches. As compansation for the age difference between Little and Peverley, and the upside difference between Leblanc and Wingels, we received also a 2nd and a 5th round pick in 2014. Not that much, but also some value."
