The Rangers last night were waiting to learn whether free-agent defenseman Anton Stralman would accept the team's contract offer. Stralman, who did not receive a contract offer from the Devils after going through training camp with the club, has been in Sweden the last two weeks, so he would not be immediately available even if he signs.
Stralman is probably the Rangers best option. The trade market for a top 4 D is non-existent. Even getting a stop gap guy in a trade is tough. Salary. Contract. The Rangers can't add significant dollars without shedding significant dollars. Even if they could the dollars this season,the term of the contract is an issue with the CBA expiring. Bettman is going to offer a 50-50 revenue split to the PA. Cap is going down in the new CBA.
The Rangers are doomed without Staal.
