Here is the 2009 RFA Compensation Grid:

$994,433 or below ..................... None
Over $994,433 to $1,506,716...... Third-round choice
Over $1,506,716 to $3,013,434.... Second-round choice
Over $3,013,434 to $4,520,150.... First-round and third-round choice
Over $4,520,150 to $6,026,867.... First-round, second-round and third-round choice
Over $6,026,867 to $7,533,584.... 2 first-round choices, 1 second- and 1 third-round choice
Over $7,533,584 ......................... Four first-round choices

2010 will probably mean the more money you offer, the lower the compensation. It could be like $6.5 million will be the cap dollar range for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd compensation threshold.

I don't see the Rangers offering over $6 million for him, so it would be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in 2011 if the Ducks did not match.

I kinda think i'd rather do that then trade say, Sangs/Girardi/Grachev/Kreider/Stepan, a 2011 1st and another pick/prospect/roster player. That would equate to at least two 1st's, and possily a 2nd or 3rd. Redden, again, would have to be dumped in order to make it work.

But Karma is a you know what, and if they Rangers are too close to the cap after next season, when Dubinsky and Callahan are RFA's again, the Rangers better watch out. I still don't see Sather offer sheeting someone, though. He is part of the "old boys" network in the NHL. You never know though.
