I don't think any other team is going to suddenly swoop in and sign Donnay outside of the Rangers, but why waste a contract spot on a really, really, super crazy long term project? The guys a string bean, doesn't compete, regressed as the season went on...I just don't get it and hope it's just fabricated nonsense (though VF has good info, not blaming him.)

The Rangers could just wait a year and offer him an AHL contract and let him earn it. Can't wait until he's playing center as the next Brian Boyle. I can just see it now, Crisp-Donnay-Harper as the "shutdown" line...no, not the 3rd line with good defensive instincts, the guys who shut it down when the going gets tough.
