And I think teams would have the same worry, making it harder to trade him (and give him a better chance to fit in somewhere else).

I do think he has a good chance to make the Rangers; as I said in an earlier post, he has creativity--something lacking on the Rangers as a team. He will get a long look in the training camp/pre-season.
AS hellbent as he seems to make the team I wouldnt be surprised to see him take a pay cut to secure his continued stay with NYR if it was his CAP hit that were to determine that. That of course is just speculation, but he seems to love the team and being a hockeyplayer from Norway he is not exacrly used to make tons of money from his passion
