You're sure? That makes one of us. I don't argue that the Rangers should/will keep Gaborik for this season (assuming there is one). However, there is a very real possibility that the Rangers will have to shed $ the following season in order to resign their UFA's.

What is this fine language going to say? It's a hard cap. The amnesty buyout is the big helper. The cap doesn't pertain to the Rangers? Resign all of your young players and keep your pricey stars...

I'd love to keep Gaborik, but you have to be prepared for other possibilities. Restocking a thinning cupboard wouldn't be a bad idea if that situation arises...
