said it once, and i'll say it again. in a salary-capped league the contract is a huge component of any deal. look at the nba for a template. this guy has - in the words of charles barkley - a 'turrble' contract. less than talent, the rangers are giving columbus money in the form of salary cap relief. it's not going to cost the rangers a ton to get this guy, if they want to take on that ridiculous contract. wolski and anisimov and a prospect/pick should do it. now if other team are bidding, the price will rise...but that's where the rangers ought to bow out. let some other team give up resources *and* take on that albatross contract. just my two cents...
