Sjostrom, LeNeveu, Gratton for Montoya, Hossa

Phoenix moves Fredrik Sjostrom, David Leneveu and Josh Gratton to the Rangers for Marcel Hossa and Al Montoya.
 

 

The Rangers get: a young goalie who seems destined to become an NHL backup – Montoya was probably too good to hang onto and he needs to be qualified. Sjostrom is a small upgrade to Marcel Hossa, but could be a healthy scratch just as much. Gratton gives the team some toughness.

 

The Coyotes get: A good young goalie in Al Montoya who I think will push Tellqvist as the backup next year. He is a slight upgrade to LeNeveu. Sjostrom was expendable, I guess the team saw more potential in Marcel Hossa.

 

Fantasy Players Impacted: I don't think anyone really goes up or down – they just switch situations.
