Last week I posted that Ryane Clowe could be looking for an eight-year extension this summer with the Rangers, however, Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that the newest Ranger gave up on his sign-and-trade demand when he couldn't find anybody willing to give him that deal at the trade deadline.
Clowe, who Garrioch believes will re-sign with the Rangers this offseason, was looking for $5.5 – $6 million per.
…insane to think Clowe actually thought he'd get a team to accept a trade for him knowing they'd be committed for eight years.
…i also think his asking price of around $6 million per is way too high. Maybe I'm completely lowballing, but I'd hate to see the Rangers go above $3.5 million per.
…i do like hearing that the Rangers will likely re-sign him as we've already seen the positive impact his physical game brings to the line-up.
