Is Souray really going to make the Rangers much better at this stage of his career? He had zero PPG last season which was cut short by injuries which is another issue with Souray. The FUBAR thread was based on the Rangers alleged interest in Souray last winter. Help the PP when he has zero PPG and he should get 10 PPG by accident with his shot. Age,injuries and big contract. Sounds like a perfect Ranger.

How much of the latest report on Souray is his agent Paul Theofanous(NYC based) attempting to drum up any interest in his client? If you believe what Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger have reported on twitter,there is basically no market for Souray. $9 million in real money left. $4.5 million-re-entry.

Yeah the Rangers could fit the $2.7 million in the cap but its going to cost a young player on a spot on D and the Rangers will be bumping up against the upper limit for most of the season and they will have to carry 21 players.
