Still owed $16.5M in salary. Redden could decide to play in Europe and the Rangers would loan him to a team in Europe with the Rangers still paying him. He had that option this season but he stayed in NA due to the birth of his child. No rush to sign the RFAs? 4 of them are arbitration eligible and they can file for arbitration on July 5. They will file. Dubinsky,Callahan,Boyle and Sauer. Hearings are later that month. These are not the Staal and Dubinsky negotiations which are resolved in September. The CBA is pretty clear on what counts and when it counts. No Bernie Madoff math here.

What did Malakhov do for Jersey? They were a good team without him. They made the Cup finals in 2001 and really should have won the Cup again that year without Malakhov who was stealing the Rangers money that season. Souray is signed past this season.
Good call on the arbitration. I thought Cally already filed but they got a deal done before. Does he still have rights or did he use it up?

Malakhov helped the Devils a lot in 2000. He was told to shut up and do nothing but play hockey and was a great stay at home veteran presence for them.

I'm not saying Souray is the answer but could he help? Maybe.
