NHL general managers have given their approval to the Rangers' request for a compensatory pick in June's Entry Draft in the wake of the death of 2007 first-round selection Alexei Cherepanov, sources have told The Post.
Though it is unclear whether Article 8.3 (b) of the CBA must be amended to accommodate this specific circumstance, the Blueshirts now stand to receive the 17th pick of this year's second round following Glen Sather's presentation yesterday at the NHL GMs meetings in Naples, Fla.
CBA was not amended to include the death of a player as a reason to receive a compensatory pick. NHLPA agreed to a one time exception. No guarantee it will happen again.
Sather lobbied the NHL GM's to give the Rangers the comp pick
Montreal didn't sign their 2006 1st rounder David Fischer so they received pick #50 in 2011 which was traded to the Islanders. That is what the rule is designed for. Fischer didn't develop at Minnesota and they didn't sign him by 8/15/10.
