This is a business. I'll take whatever I can get for any pending UFA next week. Wanna "stay a Ranger"? Accept a modest 1 year deal from them next July.
Exactly. Who was the last Ranger to re-sign on the cheap because they liked playing here, I think it was Shanny or Straka. If he likes playing here so much, money should not be an issue, especially because he's still getting paid by Tampa.

And Prospal should definitely NOT be offered a multi-year deal. I'd hope Sather learned his lesson with Brashear but who knows. Some players in their twilight years deteriorate so quickly from year to year that it's not worth the risk.
