Here are some potential targets. This is of course assuming the Rangers are in the playoff picture and the trading team is out of the playoff picture by the trade deadline:
Lydman (ANA) - $3 million
Leopold (BUF) - $3 million
Aucoin (CLB) - $2.25 million
Sutton (EDM) - $1.75 million
Fistric (DAL) - $1.475 million
Hannan (NAS) - $1 million
Slim pickings but
don't see Sather obtaining a contract which carries any salary over to next year unless he makes some kind of big deal
while getting rid of an established forward.
This would be a non-issue if Sauer was healthy. Ugh.
I don't necessarily agree with this. Sather isn't worried about adding a salary for next year if it's the right fit. He can always move some spare parts to free up a couple million if need be. I think people are a bit too focused on the cap.
