Here’s why: While the Rangers might have determined that he has worn out his welcome in their dressing room (or at least isn’t welcome there anymore at more than $2.75 million per), there are plenty of other teams that have yet to tire of his act and can absolutely use the unique contributions he can make. There is no denying that, in the short term, he is a major difference-maker nor that, without him, the Rangers never would have made the 2007 playoffs. So it is inconceivable that one of the other 29 NHL teams won’t make him an offer on July 1 that either meets or exceeds the approximately $4 million per that he believes he’s worth.
