If there is a hard cap (as you keep saying) and if there is no "grandfathering" and if the entire $11.4M is applied to NYR's salary cap (as you're saying now), then you've just rationalized why the deal
occur from the Rangers' perspective.
They've already got Holik and Kasparaitis penned to long term deals which is probably why Glen Sather indicated last week that he couldn't even entertain a Jagr trade before there is more definition from the Board of Governors as to what the next CBA will look like. He needs to hear that it won't be a "hard" cap or he needs to hear that there will be "grandfathering" of existing contracts. He needs
to mitigate the lunacy that would be to add JJ's long-term deal to those already on the MSG books.
