    Rangers Already Keeping Eye on 2021 Seattle Expansion Draft

    The Rangers will be no different. But just like the last time, when general manager Jeff Gorton took a Zen approach to the Vegas draft and came away from it about as whole as possible in losing only Oscar Lindberg, the Blueshirts won’t overreact.

    “It’s something to keep in mind,” Gorton told The Post. “We’ve already done modeling on different scenarios and projections, but we did that in advance of the last time and there were a number of changes.

    “Same as with Vegas, we know we’re going to lose a player and probably will be a pretty good player. That’s the way it is.”

    Presuming the Rangers go with the 7-3-1 protection formula (seven forwards, three defensemen, one goaltender), an issue up front could develop. That’s one of the reasons Gorton will be very careful signing players to contracts including full no-move clauses that by definition preclude exposure in the draft. Few marquee free agents will be willing to sign without getting that type of no-move protection.

    “The no-move comes up all the time in conversations,” Gorton said. “No doubt, that’s something we’re taking into consideration.”

    Larry's been busy. Have to feel o.k. with this. Looks like we are in good position not to get picked off.

    No. His contract expires before that. Also has a NMC and would need to waive.

    Give Lundqvist the farewell he deserves on the final year of his contract.

    I don't think they're going to get Hank because that might require giving a couple of early round picks we might need to grow this team from the ground-up

    I'm actually not too worried about Hank anymore. We have some time before this squad is ready to rock and his contract will be up by then. Besides, JD speaks fluent "goalie" and I think they'll come to terms on what's going to go down. I'm cool with Hank playing it out here. No need for buyouts and wasting picks. We have other shit that needs to be sent packing first. At least Hank can contribute and compete at a decently high level still.

    I think when all is said and done, he'll stick around to be the backup to Shestorkin for one or two years before he retires.

    Truthfully I don't know if he has the patience (or strength) for that. Guy is a competitor. It would probably drive him nuts.

    'Things aren't what they used to be' is the rallying cry of small minds. When men say things used to be better, they invariably mean they were better for them, because they were young, and had all their hopes intact. The world is bound to look a darker place as you slide into the grave. Joe Abercrombie, Best Served Cold.

    As he should. I think he’ll play even less games this season than last

    I think it's going to become a tandem this season -- which, over the long haul, I don't believe in goalie "tandems" but it's fine for now.

    The Rangers might not have a single defenseman worth protecting. Guess we'll see how Skjei/Hajek/ADA progress. You just might see the 8 forwards instead.

    To early to even discuss this because we have no clue who will or won't be on the team at this point.

    2 full years from now.
    The garbage will be off the books by then, provided they don’t add more.
    Worrying about this can wait

    You may not have to worry about it, but any team would be foolish to not start thinking about it

    Right.

    And garbage being off the books means you're losing a good young player. That's a good reason to keep guys like Strome around.

    But how can a team start thinking about it when they don't even know who will be on the team and who won't be. 2 years is a long time, and anything can happen between now and then. Guys we could think are going to be good, can be busts and guys we think we can expose may turn out to be guys you have to keep because they are playing so well. Plus, you don't know who is gonna be moved out in a trade scenario.

    Example- Would you sign
    Kreider to 5 years at 25 million
    Vesey to 3 years at 6 million
    Howden to 3 years at 5 million
    Panarin to 5 years at 30 million

    Each with a NTC?

    Not if that garbage has NMC and you have to protect them

    Not saying they shouldn’t be thinking about it and employ strategic thinking but there are other priorities requiring greater attention right now
