Pouliot at $1.3M. Moore at $1M. Pyatt at $1.55M. Dorsett at $1,633,333. That's over $7M. No wonder why the Rangers can't afford a decent scorer because they're paying their bottom six guys more money than they should. Even Zuccarello at $1.15M. Nash goes down with an injury and they are screwed. There is no one else. The cap is $64.3M and the Rangers have $8M tied up in players which should make up their bottom six with everyone else healthy. All of them have cap hits of over $1M. Maybe 2 or 3 but not all of them.
im hoping for the best this yr but reality tells me they need to let the UFAs walk and look to deal the during the yr if possible
Callahan is the heart and soul of this team so he should be resigned. Nash, Hagelin, Brassard, Stepan, Dorsett ( yes he is included they like him) are locks. So that's 6
He may be too young but I think Miller will eventually stick........pray Kreider does.........Hopefully Lindberg and Fast stick.............bottom line is these young kids with lower cap hits need to replace the Boyle, Pouliott, Pyatt, Zuccarellos on the roster. Moore may stay for cheap but if not oh well.
Richards will be bought out regardless because of the cap
and of course get the right UFAs in here. need a top 6 winger as a UFA
