3. We have no penalty next year against the cap
So, other than the Rangers having a little larger payroll (69.2 vs. 62.5 or whatever), what's so bad about this?
His cap hit would still count for this summer if he was put on the LTIR, no? If his is put on the LTIR, next season would be great though... Avery, Wolski, Christensen, Drury all gone with no buyout still affecting the rangers.
