He will sign on the "cheap" this year, and then next year when Kasper and Bozo are off the books, my man Henke will cash the F in. As far as Shanny, he's already stated he won't play anywhere else.
I don't know if you realize it or not, but the Rangers have something special brewing, and these guys want to be a part of it. If Shanny doesn't re-sign, the Rangers are rich in Winger prospects, and I have no doubt that one of them could come up and play consistently and contribute.
I didn't know so I asked a question, what's with the hostility? And I do have some clue what is going on, I've looked at the payroll, that's why I asked about a few key guys and their salaries. I didn't come over here blind trying to start ****, so you can quite being so defensive and threatened.
When guys on your own board are saying that Shanny is the odd-man-out, I'm the one who's chastized for asking about him possibly leaving?
Just because Lundqvist is an RFA doesn't mean he'll sign for "peanuts", he might give the Rags a deal, but he's still a 2-time Vezina finalist.
My main question was about Montoya, and I wanted some input, because frankly, I like the kid. Played for U of M, and even though he's a top prospect, he's still a backup who earns close to $2 million. But apparently people here are too busy saying "worry about your own ****ing team" that they can't come up with a reasonable response from a stupid Wings fan who doesn't belong here.

Hasek has said he'll only play for Detroit.
Seriously though, Hasek is basically signed, has been for a week, just ironing out the incentives details and it'll cost us about $2.5 million. Even after overpaying for Rafalski, we still have something like $8 million to spend, and still have close to $2 million left at the trade deadline.
