We discussed the impact of the CBA and Nash. Hate to do the I told you so but I told you so. The cap dropping in the next CBA. Looking at the Rangers commitments and future commitments. To think there were people who wanted to sign Doan in the summer. SMH. Trading Gaborik alleviates the Rangers cap issues. They free up the space and recoup some assets lost for Nash. Gaby only has 1 year remaining after 12-13. Arbitration will be the same so McDonagh and Hagelin are arb eligible. Stepan isn't. Sauer isn't an issue because of his health. Keeping the cap at $64.3M would have been better but its time to drop the puck. The cap wasn't going up so going into the CBA you knew it remain at $64.3M or decrease slightly. Drop the puck.
