The real story here is that a) the Rangers can keep Wolski if they choose and b) may still have room to add a puck moving defenseman.
Summer tagging might be an issue but that could be remedied by having some players sign thewir contract on the first day camp opens (after Redden is waived)
Does this look legal to everyone?
The summer cap would be a major issue. Drury cannot be put on LTIR until the END of training camp. Same goes for the waiving of Redden.
No RFA in their right mind will sign their contract until the end of training camp for insurance reasons and there play will be slower to get in the swing of things bcuz they are starting to skate with the team 2 weeks later.
Only person who could possibly sign at the end of training camp in your scenario is Feds, but Sather has stated he wants to lock him up before July 1st.
That and don't bring back Gilroy. You are also forgetting the summer cap hits for McD, MDZ, MZA, Grachev etc. Its not their full salaries, but a portion of them.
