Klein Acquisition Overview for Rangers

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, "If Moore can regain some of the dynamic offensive thrust he provided last season by moving back to the left, this trade will have an impact."

The New York Rangers certainly did their homework prior to this trade happening, and made sure their management team was comfortable with the deal. Pat Leonard of the New York Post reports that "Sather added that Klein played “18-to-20 minutes on a team that’s got (Shea) Weber … He’s going to fit in well. He’s smart. The (Rangers) coaches know him from teams they coached before. They’re quite comfortable with him.”

The 29-year-old defenseman is in the first year of a five-year deal worth a reported $14.5 million overall.

Over the past two regular seasons in 94 games, Klein has 17 points and 30 penalty minutes.
