Problem with Umberger, Khel...

is that he too's a UFA come July 1, which is the main reason he was traded by Vancouver. Otherwise, the Rangers don't get Umberger. And there's no guarantee the Rangers can sign him to a contract. Interesting decision at this stage of his career made by he and his agent - effectively taking an entire year off from competitive hockey - when you're 21 and really going into main development yeras - just because you can't agree on contract. Starting early these kids. If Sather can overpay, err, sign Umberger, that'll be great.
