Posted this in the lineup thread...seems to make sense here too.

Trade Drury and Washington's 2nd to Florida for Olesz and both team's buyout each player. Cap hit to the Ranger's is about $375k next year. Florida saves money and gets a pick.

Buyout Wolski with a cap hit of about $465k next year.

Combined, the Rangers need a little less than 1 million of extra cap space to allow for buyout cap hits, but the space saved is worth it.

Trade Christensen for a late round pick or waive him to the minors. Ideally, Florida sees value and wants him instead of the 2nd round pick. But that's a dream. Maybe Colorado needs a winger for a 5th or 6th round pick.

Boogaard retires, you can't take a punch with a concussion problem.

Sign UFAs Brad Richards - 7m, Tomas Fleischmann - 4.5m, Zenon Konopka 1.2m

Keep Prospal as a UFA until the deadline and bring him in as a vet for the playoff push.


Brandon Dubinsky ($4.000m) / Brad Richards ($7.000m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.000m)
Tomas Fleischmann ($4.500m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Brian Boyle ($2.500m) / Artem Anisimov ($2.200m) / Mats Zuccarello-Aasen ($1.750m) (up for grabs, could be Feds/Kreider/Grachev)
Sean Avery ($1.937m) / Zenon Konopka ($1.200m) / Brandon Prust ($0.800m)
Ruslan Fedotenko ($1.000m)

Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Mike Sauer ($1.550m)
Pavel Valentenko ($1.000m) / Michael Del Zotto ($1.087m)
/ Matt Gilroy ($1.250m)

Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m) / Martin Biron ($0.875m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $63,000,000; CAP PAYROLL: $60,500,000; BONUSES: $1,487,500
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $2,500,000

2.500m cap space less 840k buyout cap hits = 1.66m Which is enough to sign Prospal towards the end of the season to add veteran depth for a playoff push as well as make a deal.
