"McDonagh is certainly a player that's going to play in the NHL as well as Valentenko.

We got two good prospects in this deal.

It gives us some options tomorrow when free agency comes along.

I think there's going to be quite a few options available."The Rangers have been trying to deal Gomez since their season ended.

The 29-year-old Alaskan, whose career-high point total was 84 in 2005-06 with the Devils, dipped to 58 points last season (16 goals, 42 assists) in 77 games while earning $8 million.

It was his lowest offensive output since 2002-03 in New Jersey."I think Scott's a very good player," Sather said.

"He's a really good guy.

He worked hard.

He was exceptional with the team and in the dressing room.

I have no complaints about him.

He's a terrific guy and he'll do well in Montreal."Burnside: More to Come?The Rangers' trade of high-priced Scott Gomez now clears them up to pursue some bigger names and scorers when free agency begins, writes's Scott Burnside.
