All of those contracts didn't work out. They were lucky Drury retired, and Gomez netted them MacDonag from a drunk GM, but Redden and Richards will be precedents and agents, players will both notice.
No it won't.
You would think that, but that's not reality.
The fact of the matter is that three of those 4 players got contracts that they were not worth. How is that a negative?
If anything, Players and Agents would look to keep the Rangers in the bidding on any and every UFA.
Saying the Rangers Rep will take a hit on Signing UFA's is like saying teh Flyers trading recently signed players will make it difficult for them to retain their players on long term contracts.
Neither is an accurate dipiction of reality.
