At the same time, let him see the Rangers negotiating with other defensemen.

His bad penalties were hard to accept at 750k. Not sure they will be any easer to take and 2-2.5M.
Umm, he's an RFA with arbitration rights. He likes playing with the Rangers, and there's obviously no way the team is going to walk if it comes down to arbitration.

I'd predict that in arbitration, he'd get $3m. If we have to have him, getting him at $2-2.5 is a bargain, for sure.
