Update, 11:01 a.m.: Pre-Brassard arbitration hearing proposals: …while being over $1M apart is never a good thing, I love that Brassard’s number isn’t above $5M. How about four years at $4.4M per? Would leave the Rangers with around $2.6M to re-sign Moore and possibly another depth forward. …#carcilloeffect is that much closer to returning home!!!! […]
If you’re a goaltender junkie like I am (have I mentioned I played in high school?), the announcement of new equipment or face mask is always an exciting day. Even more so when it involves the best netminder in the NHL, who’s life outside of hockey revolves around fashion. So let’s take a look at […]
Now that the Rangers roster is rounding into shape, the next biggest question is who’s going to lead this team? After trading away Ryan Callahan last March, the Rangers decided to go with three alternate captains instead of naming a new captain for the remainder of the season. During the Rangers run to the Stanley […]
As soon as news broke that the Rangers decided to sign Mats Zucarello to a one-year deal instead of a long term contract, many fans expressed their concern that the diminutive winger could leave the Blueshirts as an unrestricted free agent next season for a bigger pay day. However, Zuccarello has always shown allegiance to […]
Now that Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello are back in the fold with relatively cheap contracts, it’s anticipated that Sather might be getting ready to dole out some big money with the re-signing of Derrick Brassard as Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that a long-term deal for the center iceman is likely to […]
Looks like the cap hit will be $2.475M per. Kreider will still be a RFA at the end of this deal. The Rangers now have $7 million left to re-sign Derrick Brassard and John Moore. …seriously, why did this take till this morning? Could have split the difference last week. …first Zucc, now Kreider. It’s […]
While we all wait for the outcome of the Chris Kreider arbitration hearing this morning (decision must be announced within 48-hours of the hearing), Larry Brooks at the New York Post gives us some insight into the contract negotiations for the one Rangers RFA who doesn’t have arbitration rights…John Moore. According to Brooks, the 23-year […]
The Rangers have re-signed restricted free agent Mats Zuccarello to a one-year deal, according to the New York Post’s Larry Brooks. Rangers and Zuccarello have reached agreement on one-year deal for $3.5M, will continue to work on long-term that cannot be signed until 1/1 — Larry Brooks (@NYP_Brooksie)
Despite being less than $1 million per year apart on a new contract, Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Chris Kreider and the Rangers seem likely headed to arbitration tomorrow morning. Brooks adds that while both sides have shown a willingness to compromise, each also has a bottom-line number off which it […]
Looks like Henrik Lundqvist is quickly finding out that not even a penthouse is big enough to contain all of his daughter’s toys, as apparently (h/t The Henrik Lundqvist Blog) he’s put his Hell’s Kitchen penthouse on sale for a mere $6,495,000. To be fair, it’s basically the sickest apartment I’ve ever seen… For the listing […]
While we wait for the Rangers to re-sign Mats Zuccarello, let’s take a look at why he’s so integral to the team’s success in this amazing video from @JCGraphicDesign…
…damn, I’m ready to give Zuccarello whatever he wants after watching that video. Sadly that stupid thing called a salary cap keeps getting in the way.
As part of a mandatory exchange of offers 48-hours ahead of an arbitration hearing,
After the Matthew Lombardi and Lee Stempniak signings, Rangers fans hailed them as “no risk” acquisitions because both salaries fall below the $925,000 mark and, according to the new CBA, can be buried in AHL without counting against the big club’s cap if each player fails to impress in camp. I’m not so sure I […]
Another year, another anticipated contract battle as Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Marc Staal’s contract extension negotiations with the Rangers could start at six-year, $5.5 million per year as he could easily obtain that number on the open market next summer. In 460 career games, Staal has 27g, 84a. Last season he […]
You figured it was only a matter of time before the Rangers grabbed a veteran off the scrap heap and now they have.
