The Rangers had the fewest money invested on D in 11-12 with the $64.3M cap which included the Drury buyout. DZ is getting $2.55M and not $1M with bonuses. McD won't be making $1.3M with bonuses. He will get a big contract this summer. Girardi is up for a big contract in 2014. DZ is up for a big contract in 2014. Then there is Staal in 2015. The Rangers have some big decisions to make. They have 3 players signed past 13-14. Staal,Nash and Richards. 4 if you count Miller. Compliance buyout for Richards.
Exactly this. People are just ignoring the cap. Choices.
