No Performance Bonuses Will Make It Hard to Sign Kreider

kreider5Arthur Staple at Newsday reports that because there is no performance bonus cushion in the CBA this year, the Rangers won’t have much salary cap room to add a bonus-laden, entry-level deal like the one Chris Kreider would sign.

Staple adds that the Rangers definitely want Kreider in their system rather than in college, even if it’s a full season with Connecticut of the AHL, but Kreider wants to be a pro when he’s mentally and physically prepared for whatever may happen.

As far as Rangers fans calling for his signing, Kreider had no idea…

“Really? This is the first I’m hearing of all that,” he said. “I guess it’s not too tough to stay away from that.”

…Kreider obviously knows himself better than anyone else, so if he doesn’t feel that he’s ready for the NHL or AHL grind who am I to criticize. Would rather he make the jump when he’s as comfortable as possible further insuring a successful NHL career.

Speaking of Rangers prospects, or should I say former prospects, Jess Rubenstein at The Prospect Park tweeted me this article from the Whig Standard on the Ethan Werek trade which says the scoring winger played too many soft games.
