If the Rangers aren't concerned about cap recapture and long term commitments,why is Sather playing hardball with Callahan and Girardi over term which is a major issue? Sather won't be around to deal with it. Why should Slats give a **** about an extra year or two? Same thing with Lundqvist. They went to 7 years only when things were about to spiral out of control. Without Lundqvist,the Rangers aren't close to a playoff spot. The amnesty allows the Rangers to get rid of a contract which ends in 2020 with the player being 40. McKenzie said the ages of Callahan and Girardi are the reason why the Rangers want no part of 7 year commitments. Both of them are 4-5 years younger than Richards. The amnesty allows the next GM(Gorton)to build the team in his image.
