The Nick Holden trade is a nice little move for both the New York Rangers and the Boston Bruins. Holden, 30, has a low cap hit ($1.65 million) and an expiring contract. He bolsters the Bruins' left side on defense, perhaps to avoid asking Matt Grzelcyk to do too much in his first postseason. The third-round pick the Rangers get for this rental adds another selection to an important draft board this June. If Rob O'Gara, 24, becomes something more than the AHL defenseman he appears to be at this point, all the better. He goes RFA this summer.
