anyone think Ortmeyer is done as a Ranger, after this????
Well, if you actually read the article (and this is not the first time this issue with Holik, Ortmeyer and Kasparaitis has come up in the media), you'd discover that Holik's case and Ortmeyer's are somewhat different and only Holik's money will end up counting against the cap. And why? Because the Rangers were stupid, that's why. They are the only team that tried to withhold these bonuses during the lockout and for a "reason" that will get blown out of the water when the grivance is heard. Serves them right for being tight with their pennies. Now it will cost them a player's salary on the roster. All for the joy of having had Holik in a Ranger jersey. Just lovely.
