David Jigland at allehanda.se reports that Detroit Red Wings Director of European Scouting Hakan Andersson says the reason the Rangers were able to sign Mats Zuccarella Aason was a promise that he'd play on a line with Marian Gaborik..."I was hoping he would sign for us but from what I understand he is ready for the New York Rangers. I do not know what it fell on but I know he has good contact with the (New York Rangers scout) Anders Hedberg past and the promise that maybe he would play in the first chain with Marian Gaborik."...not sure how true this report is but i love the business tactics by the Rangers. Do whatever you need to close the deal. Now that's he's signed, Torts will tell him where to play and he'll have no choice but to be happy.
