The deal leaves approximately $2.8 million of space for the Blueshirts to sign Derek Stepan, their lone remaining restricted free agent. Stepan, the club’s first-line center, does not have arbitration rights.
The projected opening three-week absences for top-six wingers Ryan Callahan and Carl Hagelin, both of whom underwent labrum surgery following the playoffs, has created a cap squeeze for the Rangers, who will probably have to carry 15 forwards coming out of training camp.
The Blueshirts are at around $61.6 million for a shadow roster that features 14 forwards including J.T. Miller, and Danny Kristo, plus a combined $217,000 charge against Arron Asham and Darroll Powe, assuming both veterans begin the season with the AHL Wolf Pack.
The Rangers should move Boyle or Pyatt(preferably both)to free up money to sign Stepan to a long-term contract.
