Rangers get a decent D prospect in Raddysh and he has a better chance in NYR than CHI to make the NHL (Beaudin, Krys, Boqvist, Hillman, Mitchell, etc.). 3 Hartford D are injured, also.

Blackhawks get a reliable two-way forward for the AHL; adds depth. There are also 3 injured F in Rockford.

Minor deal.

Idk much about Raddysh, but he's younger and Holland is a UFA after the year. I'd say the Rangers win.

Rangers get a D prospect who could actually make the NHL for an AHL forward

I'm a hawks fan... I have to think he asked for the trade. This is a Hawks loss for sure.

***EDIT*** hopefully this means Ian Mitchell is more likely to sign though!

2 organizations trading from places of relative strength and adding to weak spots in their organizational depth charts. Holland gives the Blackhawks a versatile forward who can play up the middle or on the wing and who has been having a renaissance year in the AHL (in top 10 in scoring all year).

For the Hawks, I think this presages trades of Anisimov and/or Kruger this week as they have improved their depth up the middle behind them.

Raddysh was on an AHL contract til a year ago, so this isn’t a blue-chip prospect by any means. Certainly the Hawks get the better player tho Raddysh has some room for development; Holland is Likely starting his decline and may not match his totals from this year.

Holland is a Greg McKegg/Curtis Hamilton type of asset. Can play top-line mins in the AHL but is also adaptable to a 4th pairing role in the NHL (tho able to move up the lineup).

Quoting: CapFriendly

- Raddysh is a legit D prospect at 22.
- Holland is a 28 year old UFA.

Why did Chicago do this?
