The Rangers will have the following contracts for their D if you bring back Staal, Stralman, & Moore.

Giradi 5.5
McD 4.7
Staal 5.5ish
Klein 2.9
Stralman 4.5ish
Moore 1.5ish

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.
worse when you consider how unbalanced it is in terms of providing offence from the defensive position.

Defensively that's a good group. As a whole, that is a challenged group offensively.
