If he wants big money and a long deal, there's going to be a GM out there like Tallon with the green light from ownership to spend big money who will give it to him. The Rangers aren't going to match the best offers for a player who is playing a diminished role under Vigneault.
He played 17 minutes on the second line last night. And the team has four lines playing pretty well right now. Maybe I'm missing something here.
