Rangers "in the Conversation" for Tobias Rieder


Recommended Posts

There are, however, a couple of younger players who came onto the market this week after failing to get qualifying offers from their respective teams for whom the Rangers should be willing to go at least three years, and perhaps even four, to sign.


They are: 25-year-old winger Tobias Rieder, late of the Kings after spending the previous 3 ?/₂ years with the Coyotes, and 26-year-old Daniel Carr, allowed to go free by Montreal following a couple of spins with the Canadiens after winning an NCAA title at Union.


Both are energy-type players, straight-line guys who play with some jam and can bring it to the net. And each has a modicum of scoring ability. Reider scored 18 goals in full-time duty with Arizona two years ago before getting 12 last year, while Carr scored 14 goals in 94 games over three years with the Habs.


Rieder, coming off a two-year deal worth $2.225 million per, will cost more. He likely will be able to attract at least a three-year deal in the $10 million neighborhood, if not more. Three years for him seems a no-brainer from the Rangers? perspective. Four is probably palatable.


Carr earned $725,000 per on a two-year contract with Montreal, so he?s more likely a two-year, $2.4 million signing. Not that the Rangers have to be concerned with cap ramifications on this type of contract, but the AHL exemption is set at $1.025 million this year. Hence, if Carr (who would require waivers) winds up in Hartford, the NHL cap charge would be insignificant.
