I agree the problem is the Rangers hand out long-term contracts to players who are deteriorating.

Clowe @ 3 years is not he same thing as Richards for 9 or Gomez for 7.

It is all about signing a player to a contract that is market value. If Clowe scores 35 points next season and has 100PIM's making 3.5 million, there would be a market for him around the league. Plenty of playoff experience. Tough as nails. Good along the boards. Good PP player.

I am a fan of players who can be multi-dimensional. A player who can effect a game in multiple ways is normally a decent investment because even if they aren't scoring, they can contribute to wins.

He can play anywhere in the top-9 at that contract I proposed and help that line and this team win.

I also don't think he is as "run-down" as you seem to.
