As the April 3 trade deadline looms, NHL clubs in a position to challenge for a playoff spot will look to bolster their lineup as they head into the stretch run.
Throughout history, we've seen players added to clubs at the deadline who eventually become playoff heroes for their new teams. Butch Goring is probably the best example of such a case.
Currently the NY Rangers are riddled with question marks, and many fans and experts would agree a change could shake things up. But with so many teams still in the running for a playoff position, it'll be difficult for the Rangers, or any team for that matter, to find their Goring in 2013.
It's no secret the Rangers' last 20 years have been a roller coaster ride; there's a been a Stanley Cup, seven seasons without a playoff appearance and a recent resurgence, and over that time we've seen some infamous deadline deals and some real busts.
Today we'll take a look at the Rangers' five best deadline day moves of the past 20 years.
Note: These are deadline day deals. Any deal done before the deadline day in a single season will not be considered.
