Niedermayer at 4-5 mil is a hell of a lot better than Kaspar at 3.3. In fact I would sign Nieds and call it a month for signing dmen. Niedermayer, Tyutin, Kondratiev, Purinton, Lampman, Liffiton, Strudwick.
Problem is if the Rangers buyout Kaspar, then they will take a 2.2 million dollar Cap hit for 06-07 & 07-08. The buyout exemption is only for 05-06. I dont think with the Cap hit in 06-07 and 07-08 it is worth the buyout of Kaspar or even Holik unless Neidermeyer signs a one year contract. But we know that wont happen.
