The market was tilted in such a way that the Rangers got their man, and they got him at their price.

Without giving up any prized prospects, the Rangers landed power forward Ryane Clowe from the Sharks late yesterday afternoon, sending back a second-round pick (41st overall) and a third-round pick (61st overall, from Florida).

In addition, because Clowe is a pending free agent after this season, if he resigns with the Rangers, the Sharks will get another conditional second-round pick in 2014. They also will get that pick if the Rangers win two rounds of the playoffs, and if neither happens, the Sharks will get a fifth-round pick.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to acquire Ryane,” general manager Glen Sather said in a statement. “He is a unique combination of size, skill and toughness. His strong leadership and character make him a tremendous addition to our organization on and off the ice.”

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Clowe had to waive his no-trade clause to come to the Rangers, whom he chose over the Canucks, among other teams. He carries a $3.625 million cap hit, and is expected to at least have talks with the Rangers concerning a contract extension.

The Rangers — usurped for eighth place in the Eastern Conference by the Islanders after a 5-2 win over the Jets last night at the Coliseum — have an estimated $11 million in cap space for next season. That does not include important “bridge” deals for restricted free agents Ryan McDonagh, Carl Hagelin and Derek Stepan. It also doesn’t include possible amnesty buyouts, which could mean significant savings if it were Brad Richards ($6.67 million) or Marian Gaborik ($7.5 million).
