Was this ever verified by the Rangers or was it just media speculation? Because Zherdev says differently.

It was reported that you agreed to the Ranger's offer of $3.25 million but New York declined saying it was too late. Are you disappointed?
Lies written in the media. This is how it was. The Rangers made me a qualifying proposal. It didn't satisfy me. My agent and I filed for arbitration which we were awarded $3.9 million a year. New York refused and decided to make me a FA. I wasn't offended - it was their right. That's all. We did not conduct any other negotiations with the Rangers.
