    Exactly. This is the kind of contract you should be more than willing to give control to the player on given how many years he left on the table (upward of three).

    Awesome! That should be one of the best deals in recent years.

    Good deal

    Big upgrade over the dearly departed Girardi

    Kampfer is your 7th D - 650k
    Neives as a forward - 755k
    Jensen will be under a million

    there, your roster is filled out and you still have 3 mil + in cap space to play with

    I'm very, very happy with this. He clearly wants to be here very much. He could've gotten $7 x 7 from someone easy. He probably left over $20 mil on the table, all told, to be here. That's the kind of guy you want on your team. And while I doubt he's going to "fix" the powerplay (that Herculean task is in the empirically-proven incapable hands of Scott Arniel), he certainly gives us options and makes it a lot better.

    And Hayes is your 2nd line center behind Zib...
    I don't like it. What is Shattenkirk going to QB back there? They better be working on a trade for a good center. I can't handle Hayes getting the job. Unless they think Miller can handle it.. I'm uncomfortable with not upgrading the top center spot.

    I thought there was a rumor out there that Edmonton was interested in Staal---Staal for Ethan Bear or Caleb Jones, I think was the rumor. Better prospect would mean us ponying up money. That would give us more cap space tho' who is left at this point. Unless we make a deal like Anisimov, look for a team that's looking to get under the cap.

    Nieves and Jensen are no where need a lock to make the roster, and 2-3 million is about minimum cap play to start a season anyways.

    Like I said before, we have very little wiggle room

    No such rumor. The only thing I've seen on Staal and Edmonton was a Bluelinestation article suggesting Edmonton as a destination. There's no actual smoke. Just the hope for it.

    4 years makes this a little more tolerable.

    Combined with signing Smith... I question that part.

    Honestly....doesnt this make the Stepan trade an even bigger mistake? Figured DeAngelo was stepping in to cut his teeth in the NHL this year. Now we have a backlog of D and an anemic center position.......hopefully we see something happen.

    There would be no Shattenkirk if Stepan wasn't traded. That alone makes it worth it. We had no RHD whatsoever. Trading Stepan for Shattenkirk, DeAngelo, 1st round pick is one of the smartest things this franchise could have done, especially because Stepan had a NTC kicking in.

    No, could be a deal is coming whether it be Staal or more than likely Holden since he's only making 1.65 mil. this year.

    Nice to hear his enthusiasm for joining a team he was a fan of.
    Us Rangers fans don't get to hear this very much. Hopefully he's eyes wide open, too. Cranky bunch of fans that we can be sometimes, lol.

    no. As much as i liked stepan i felt he was starting to trend downward especially with the cap hit/NTC kicking in and his limited skating ability.

    this played out about as good as you could hope on all fronts. the andersson pick really intrigues me. the kid talks the talk for sure.

    wouldn't be surprised if we go into the season down the middle without an upgrade. not that I like it but just think prying a center away thats a true 1 will mean a fair amount of assets going back.
