Not signing these guys and trading them isn't what a winning organization would do. They cited Girardi and McD as one of the best pairs in the league and the truth is that no one here will really appreciate Girardi until the Rangers **** the bed and trade a 29 year old R D that they can't remotely replace. The can't even find a 3rd pairing R D for Pete's sake.
The Rangers signing both Girardi and Callahan for $12M combined(ballpark number)gives the Rangers $33M in 5 players. Lundqvist,Nash,McDonagh are $21M. $38M to fill out the remaining 16 or 17 spots plus leave enough room to operate the team during the season. This same team scored 2 goals this week at home. They have scored 75 goals in 49 games at even strength. 5th worst in the NHL.
