    Yes he can come here to be only the third highest paid player in the league and starve making $11.5m. That’s driving a hard bargain slright

    Personally, 9.5 x 7 would be my upper limit, which would mean we'd lose out, but 12 million for Artemi Panarin? No thanks.

    I still think the need at Center is greater than a winger with our young wing depth. I'd rather sign Duchene and/or Lee or Ferland and flip Kreider, Strome and Vesey for picks.

    I'm no Pavelski guy, but if he stops you from a future millstone 5 years out, go that direction.

    Panarin would make more sense if you landed Hughes, but our C depth is a joke. Who is playing there? Panarin would mean you're stuck with Chytil @ #2? Fuck that.

    Now yes. But the cap is always rising. In 2-3 years his cap will look pretty good

    Yes but we’re not aiming for the cup next year. A center could develop or signed next year

    I don't see who that would be. If you tie up that cash in Panarin, that's it. Kappo, Chytil, Kravtsov, Zibanejad, Fox, Shesterkin.. These guys are going to get expensive only four seasons out. You'll be doing well to keep Zibanejad.

    Tell that to Minnesota about parise and suter. Praise by the way is another all ranger fans had to have for “free”. Thank fucking god he wanted to go home. Because you know what could possibly go wrong?

    Yes centers should come cheap either by trade or free agency if the rangers need to acquire them. Good point.

    My max contract would be 5 years at $10 million

    2-3 years from now, we are going to have to shed quality players due to cap issues just as we are becoming a contender. The more I think about it, the more I lean towards taking a pass on Panarin. That huge block of cap space could really hurt.

    Not that he would’ve ever signed here but I would’ve much rather thrown the money at Tavares last year than sign Panarin this year. Scary part for the Rangers to be real contenders down the road is the same old problem for this team, the center position. I don’t see anyone that projects to a really good #2 center down the road. Hopefully I’m wrong on Chytil. Think he can be a nice player but I I liked him better on the wing. Howden strikes me as a third liner at best. Andersson hopefully a third or fourth liner? Guess we will see in time

    Parise wasn't the same elite player after the knee injury and they committed to him until he is at least 37. Panarin doesn't have either of those question marks.

    Also, 7.5/year for a 60 point Parise hasn't been that bad a contract for the Wild honestly.

    25 million in essentially dead cap space between Staal/Smith/Shattenkirk/Lundqvist. None can be moved at this point, all with prohibitive buyouts. That's just the reality for at least one more season.

    You’ve been telling me for a year that strong wingers can make effective centers.
    Get the elite player when you have the chance.
    They’re not winning anything next season, so see if a guy can develop into a 2C.
    In 2-3 seasons, if it’s still an issue, trade a few prospects (they have enough) for a C. Guys like Duchene and O’Reilly wouldn’t be hard to acquire using their stockpile of prospects.

    They will need every low cost player they have in 3-4 years. Trading them for an O’Reilly or duchene type requires cap space which they will not be in supply of

    The rangers are not currently situated to make this move. That is the reality. Signing panarin does not make them a contender. Their window opens ideally 2-3 years from now at which point panarin’s contract can just as easily be a negative as a positive.
