@ 4 million on the 3rd line in his final year or 2 he would be overpaid, but for a player of his skill-set, that is about right.

Prust got 2.5 million. Clowe is a FAR superior player to him. People have been clamoring for the fact that the Rangers should have re-signed him. The difference is, Clowe is a top-6 player right now and a proven playoff performer.

If the Rangers were to move Pyatt AND Boyle in the off-season, replacing them with young players (which is reasonable looking at the prospect pool), they wouldn't be adding much in terms of cap.

I think he has added some much needed leadership, toughness and playmaking.

Again, if his demands are reasonable, I would like to re-sign him.
