Oh.......wait.......EVERY discussion is about the NYR payroll office.

No, it's about constructing a team that has to face salary cap implications with every move it makes. How many times do the Rangers have to be slapped in the face with the reality that you cannot overpay mediocre players in the salary cap era? I was on record saying it was a bad signing the day it happened and I remain firm in that belief. Salary will continue to enter in the discussion of a player's performance when that player has a salary that affects decision the team has to make going forward, especially that player's performance has been a healthy scratch on numerous occasions over the course of the season.
