The Rangers will have the following contracts for their D if you bring back Staal, Stralman, & Moore.
so youre looking at 24.6 mil spent on just your defense, add in another 8.5M on your starting goalie and another 1.5mil on your backup goalie. thats 34.6M of the 71 mil just on your defense.
By comparison sake the Kings are probably around 16mil on their D.
thats a whole lot of money to tie into a defense...a whole lot of money.
Sort of a chicken or the egg type argument tho isn't it?
We need to play stingy D since our offense is middle of the road at best.
Can't upgrade the forwards because we have no $ or trade chips (draft like sheet and trade away our 1st relentlessly).
And the cycle continues.
