This is certainly not a worst case scenario for the New York Rangers concerning the expansion draft. While losing Oscar Lindberg isn’t great, they were going to part with some asset to Vegas. Better Lindberg than any of the other likely candidates. The Rangers hold on to Raanta, Fast and Grabner, all of whom have more trade value or current value to the team than Lindberg. Lindberg may have more upside down the road, but that’s an “if”. Assuming the Rangers didn’t have to part with any, or at least any significant, draft picks to make this happen, today’s a win and they can move on to the post Expansion Draft trade frenzy and free agency in reasonably good shape.
