07:09 PM ET 04.02 | Clowe has waived his no-trade clause to go to the Rangers, LeBrun reports. The Sharks can complete the deal now. The Sharks have agreed to trade Ryane Clowe to the New York Rangers for draft picks, according to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun. Because Clowe has a no-trade clause in his contract, the deal will become official once he agrees to it. Clowe sat out Monday night's game against the Canucks because the Sharks wanted to protect their asset from injury. Perhaps a change of scenery could be better for Clowe, who has not scored in 28 games this season. He has 11 assists, 79 penalty minutes, and a -4 plus-minus rating. He was also suspended two games last month for coming off the bench to engage in an altercation with the Blackhawks??? Andrew Shaw. Clowe has been a consistent force in the lineup since the 2008-2009 season (he averages more than 20 goals per season), but has not found a way to get it together this year.

Imagine what the price would have been if he scored a goal

"Sharks finally deal Ryan Clowe"

I see by the headlines, he waived his no-trade and also had to agree to drop an 'e' from his name.
New York sure is a tough town!!!

Our long nightmare is over...

Seems like a good fit for the Rags, but at ZERO goals this season, was he worth those picks?

Just a slump, he is certain to get as many goals as the number of picks NYR gave up to get him

LOL @ Sather

he only seems like a good fit because he has no goals.

On a (hopefully) optomistic note, I see that he can actually play a bit. Maybe now the NYR can keep guys like Newbury (?) out of the lineup

Looking forward to the game tonight since the Islanders moved up. I don't know if I've seen Pitt caught in a back-to-back with the opponent waiting for them

True to form, T&R just had to treat us to a Clowe thread. Let's hope it's the only one.

All I'm hoping for is a regulation Pens win.

I believe the second 2nd round pick becomes a fifth if x,y and z doesnt happen. one of those type deals

I dont know what to think anymore.

He has scored 17 goals in seasons past. Adds grit and size so hopefully its a down year.....but why go get another player with a down year??? Richie, Gabs are already having off years??

3 picks for this???

I decided last night that if/when we get eliminated from play-off contention I will root for
Montreal and Toronto (in what order I have yet to decide).

you did. good prognostication. I'll put in a good word for you at the tsn trade center...you'll be a show in for a job next season. You can join the illustrious panel of 271 'experts'.

and on top of it he thinks that he's going to land a 7 year contract. This guy's even more out to lunch than O'reilly.

I know....baffles the mind....but hey everything is possible with Sather.

For that, why didnt we just pay Prust.....???

eaaaaaaaaasy.......big fella.

Honestly, I am leaning that way since you have Prust and I like the young guns and their skating.......

But what about DL?

This is a great step for Sather. Usually the player doesn't forget how to score until the Rangers get them. Here he's already forgot how to score so that aspect will be taken care of already.
