Both cost about $4 million. I don't know of many players who will contribute more than those two for their prize (although Jagr comes at a discount). Nylander is one of the most prizeworthy players in the entire league with his $2.2 million in cap spaze, granted his salary will of course rise when he signs a new contract (hence the underpaid statement). I don't think he will claim more than about $3 million though.

Alright, you have a view on how to improve this team (in the future), I have a different view. I think Rangers should release money they have bound up on mediocre defensemen with overpaid salaries instead, if possible.
Yeah man I agree you on most points here. I should have made it clear that along with jettisoning the aforementioned forwards, that we'd all but clean house on defense as well. I'm talking everyone but Tyutin and Pock .


It's just pain.
