The first trade on NHL Trade Deadline Day may well be the biggest, with the defending Art Ross Trophy winner getting moved. Discount Nike NFL Jerseys . Numbers Game examines the deal that sees Martin St. Louis and Ryan Callahan swapping places. The Rangers Get: RW Martin St. Louis. St. Louis, 38, is the highest scoring player in the league since 2009-2010, tallying 388 points (131 G, 257 A) in 351 games and led the league in scoring last season, with 60 points in 48 games. Theres no reason, despite his age, to believe that St. Louis suddenly wont be able to keep producing offensively. While St. Louis has never been an exceptional possession player, hes thrived alongside Steven Stamkos, one of the premier finishers in the game, which has resulted in a consistently high high on-ice shooting percentage. There arent a lot of players that can maintain those percentages but St. Louis has been able to produce an on-ice shooting percentage above 10% every season, including the current season, during which hes spent most of his year skating with rookies Tyler Johnson and Ondrej Palat. So, if St. Louis gets re-united with former Lightning linemate Brad Richards, there is a fair chance for that line -- with Carl Hagelin on the left side -- to be productive, definitely more productive than they have been with Callahan in that spot. St. Louis is under contract for one more season, at a cap hit of $5.625-million, but there is an advantage built in for the Rangers when it comes to signing him to an extension. Since New York was St. Louis preferred destination, its reasonable enough to think that the Blueshirts will be able to keep him as long as he keeps scoring. The Lightning Get: RW Ryan Callahan, a second-round pick, a 2015 first-round pick and an additional conditional pick. While Callahan, 28, is universally praised for his heart, work ethic and determination, those are qualities that are awfully difficult to put a value on and, in the Rangers case they were more inclined to deal Callahan for St. Louis more tangible benefits. This isnt to say that Callahan doesnt provide his own tangible value -- he has 120 goals since 2008-2009, which ranks 50th -- but he tends towards middling puck possession numbers, including this year even though hes starting a career-high 60.4% shifts in the offensive zone this year. With St. Louis moving on, there are some interesting opportunities available for Lightning forwards. While Callahan is one player who could benefit, anyone that ends up with Stamkos is obviously in a good situation. Teddy Purcell, Alex Killorn, Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov are other wingers that could get a turn on Stamkos wings. Indications, leading up to this trade, were that Callahan was looking at a six-year deal worth more than $6-million per season. Its entirely understandable that the Lightning wont be inclined to pay that price to keep Callahan long-term, which would effectively make him a rental and therefore make the draft picks a more important facet of the deal. The second-round pick this year could be a first-round pick if the Rangers reach the Eastern Conference Final, the Lightning also get the Rangers first-round pick in 2015. If Callahan re-signs in Tampa Bay, the Rangers would get Tampa Bays second-round pick while sending a seventh-round pick to New York. The accumulated value of a mid-first and a second-round pick yields, on average, about a 95% chance of landing an NHL player, so its reasonable to see that the Lightning should get some long-term benefit out of St. Louis departure, but thats trying to making the most out of a bad situation, a situation that reached a breaking point when stories started to take hold that St. Louis had asked to be moved out of Tampa Bay. St. Louis is a rare talent, an elite point producer, and no matter how much depth the Lightning are accumulating throughout their organization -- and they have a great crop of young forwards -- its tough to make up for losing a player of St. Louis calibre, particularly in the short-term. If the Lightning were committed to making a run in a relatively open Eastern Conference, perhaps riding a career season from goaltender Ben Bishop, it might have made more sense to wait until summer to make this deal, but maybe the situation behind the scenes just wasnt tenable.

"I honestly dont know," he said. Try this: 20 points, nine assists and seven rebounds by Rajon Rondo, a 62-37 rebounding advantage by the Celtics and a horrible 4-for-30 shooting performance on 3-pointers by the Nets. MEXICO CITY -- Alex Rodriguez says his season-long suspension could be a benefit, allowing him to rest and return to the Yankees for the final three years of his contract. Speaking late Wednesday in Mexicos capital during a promotional appearance, Rodriguez declined to talk specifically about his suspension for violating baseballs drug agreement and labour contract. Rodriguez, in his first public comments since arbitrator Fredric Horowitzs decision Saturday, said he wanted to end his career with New York. Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner has declined to talk about his possible return but has called him a "great player." "The 2014 season could be a big help for me," Rodriguez said. "It might serve as a break and close the chapter, and begin in 2015 with my last three years under contract with the Yankees." Rodriguez, who will be 39 when the 2015 season opens, repeated several times that this part of his life had not been completed. "I want to retire in New York, and I think the rest will do me good," he added. "For me, the book isnt finished. There are still chapters to finish. ... Right now I havent thought about retiring." Rodriguez, fifth on the career list with 654 homers sued the Major League Baseball and the players union on Monday in an effort to overturn the decision by Horowiitz, who reduced what originally was a 211-game suspension issued by Selig in August.

"This process has been taxing both mentally and physically throughout the past eight months," Ron Berkowitz, a spokesman for Rodriguez, said in a statement Thursday. "Alex will abide by the rulings of the federal judge -- whatever he decides -- and get ready for 2015 should the judge rule against him. He will continue to move forward with his complaint which will help all players against this unfair system." Also speaking Wednesday night, Yankees captain Derek Jeter said he is saddened by the situation. "The whole situation is bad," Jeter said at his Turn 2 Foundation golf classic in Tampa, Fla. "The whole thing has been kind of messy." Jeter has been in communication with Rodriguez, but declined to say what was discussed. "Im sure its a rough situation," Jeter said. Hall of Famer Goose Gossage attended Jeters event and called the Rodriguez matter unfortunate for the game and everyone involved. "I wish A-Rod would just leave it alone and go on," Gossage said. "Then see about coming back. Who knows what the future holds for A-Rod and the Yankees? I think A-Rod, probably, got what he deserved. I hate to see it happen to him, but I think the punishment fits the crime." ' ' '
