I don't mind having Nylander but I have big problem with him being signed for the years and the money he is making. Mark my words, this move will haunt the Rangers. That is the biggest problem with having a Jagr on the team. Now you HAVE to sign players for HIM not for YOU.
Think the Garden will have any problem eating a contract to get a player off the team.It's $3 million and you are acting like it's $10 million.The Jaromir Jagr move is the move which will haunt this franchise.If there is a luxury tax system,the Rangers are going to pay the tax.The Knicks have a $100 million payroll and will pay $40-50 million more in tax.The NBA is dollar for dollar over the threshold.The Jagr $$$ is not even $11 million per.Under the MLB CBA,the Yankees are only being charged for the portion they are paying Alex Rodriguez instead his entire salary with the rest being paid by Texas.The Rangers just take the money from the Capitals and use it towards the luxury tax.It's not going to be hard cap.How can there be a hard cap with guaranteed salaries?The NHLPA is NOT going to accept a hard cap plus non-guaranteed contracts.It's not going to fly
