$113k summer cap number at $525,000 NHL minimum. The Rangers usually give more AHL money for players taking the minimum. Its bad enough Johnson was qualified but for him to carry a $140k summer cap number is obscene. He won't be on the Rangers. Even when the Rangers call him up due to an injury,they're afraid to use him. The Rangers would look for a more experienced guy if its a long term injury than play Johnson. In the minors,Johnson will be battling 3 other goalies for playing time. Mitchell is eligible for a two way. Toronto didn't give him a QO because they didn't want the arb case. He re-signed for $725k. One way. Another one way deal isn't good for both sides. The Rangers won't pay him big money to play in the AHL and Mitchell is stuck in the AHL with a 1 way contract. He would need to clear re-entry to play in the NHL making more $105,000 AHL.
