Rangers go big with addition of Scott
The New York Rangers acquired the biggest player on trade-deadline day Monday -- at least in a literal sense.

The top team in the Eastern Conference acquired the 6-foot-8, 270-pound John Scott from the Chicago Blackhawks to add some blue-line depth in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2012 Entry Draft.

Rumors swirled throughout the day that the Rangers were trying to land Blue Jackets star Rick Nash, but GM Glen Sather elected to keep his team intact and instead picked up the 29-year-old Scott.

In 140 career games, Scott has 1 goal, 4 assists and 231 career penalty minutes.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
