I kind of hope Sather can find a taker for Zherdev and bring in some size and skill.

Same here, but with his salary and the compensation required, I don't see a team giving up at minimum a 1st and 3rd to sign him. I was thinking about it, and being that his value is probably an all-time low, IMO he's probably returning. I don't see the Rangers cashing the investment in for his current trade value. His value is going to be cheaper than a similar player, in terms of point production, who is a UFA. It's probably in the Rangers' best interest to retain him.

What are the qualifications of a group VI UFA? Basically, I'd like to keep Paranteau and give him a shot on the big club. His style and game would fit in Tortorella's system.

Group 6 Free Agents.

(i) Means any Player who is age 25 or older who has completed three (3) or more professional seasons, whose SPC has expired and: (i) in the case of a Player other than a goaltender, has played less than 80 NHL Games...

(ii) Any Group 6 Player shall, at the expiration of his SPC, become an Unrestricted Free Agent and shall be completely free to negotiate and sign an SPC with any Club, and any Club shall be completely free to negotiate and sign an SPC with such Player, without penalty or restriction, or being subject to any Right of First Refusal, Draft Choice Compensation or any other compensation or equalization obligation of any kind.
Parenteau is 25, has more than 3 professional seasons in the AHL and has played less than 80 NHL games, so he is a group 6 UFA. He can sign with any team he wants.

Odds are that won't be with the Rangers. Most likely he'll look for a team willing to give him a shot in the NHL and, barring that, will play in Europe.

Because of the economic recession, it's quite possible the NHL salary cap could drop from more than $56 million to around $52 million by the summer of 2010.

In a recent meeting with the Associated Press Sports Editors, NHL commisioner Gary Bettman called that speculation because nobody knows for sure what to expect in terms of ticket sales and attendance next season. But Bettman admitted, "That is certainly a possibility. From our standpoint, we can all take comfort in the fact that our system is self-correcting. As revenues go up, the players share in it. If revenues go down, because we have a hard cap and escrow refund, we can't overpay based on the percentage we pay the players. It goes from 54 percent to 57 percent, depending on where the revenues are, but if revenues decline, then, player costs decline in direct proportion to that. So, there is a self-correcting element.

"That goes to a more profound question, if you're running a team, in terms of: 'What contractual commitments have I made, and how much cap space will I have.' That's an operational issue in terms of how teams plan. I have always said that, if I were operating a team, I would opt for shorter-term contracts to have flexibility. Some of the long-term contracts will turn out to be great; some may not. Time will tell. But the more of those contracts you have, the less flexibility you may have as the cap comes down. That's why I think it might be a concern to some general managers."
Quote:
Obviously, the Islanders have concerns about the remaining 12 years of injured goaltender Rick DiPietro's contract because of uncertainty about the health issues that limited him to five games last season. But DiPietro's annual salary of $4.5 million still leaves them plenty of flexibility. Other teams are locked in at higher prices for star players and might have to shed salary over this summer and next summer to position themselves to get under the cap.

That should provide Snow with an opportunity to pluck a quality player or two down the road in trade or by a free-agent signing

$52 million in 10-11 wouldn't be that big of a hardship

Are the Islanders one of the three teams on Gomez's NTC?

Zherdev will either accept his 1 year QO of $3.25 million or sign a 1 year at a slightly higher number which will make Zherdev a group III UFA next summer at the age of 25 with 7 years pro experience.

This one could be expensive but how about trying to land Samuel Påhlsson? He said in an interview a year or two ago that he'd love to play in New York before heading home to Sweden. I love Betts, but if he's going to be asking for money I rather pay a little more and get God.

I want Zherdev on the team........I know he struggled at the end of the year but give the guy a chance. this team has no offensive talent and he is one of them

I really think it's going to break down to resigning all RFA's , going with some youth in Hartford and resigning Antropov

The Doozy is finding room for Gaborik

When do RFA's usually sign or have to sign by?...........how far into Free Agency?

This is one of the first years where I don't expect much via FA......If they sign Gaborik on the first day I will be happy

I posted this proposal in another thread. But its relevant here considering that would accomplish two things for the Rangers. Ridding themselves of one of their bad contracts, i.e. helping the cap situ and, landing them a top 5 pick.


Gomez, Sanguenetti, Korpikoski rights to Zherdev, Rangers first in 09 for Thrashers first in 09 and Todd White.

White wont reproduce his season last year but hes not a bad player and is only at 2.5 per year and I believe is a UFA after this year.

Its a win win. Thrashers get a top line center for Kovalchuk, two prospects and rights to a player would flourish with Kovalchuck.

Rangers get rid of some salary, and a top draft pick.

I'd like to see him go to LA with a chance to move up in the draft. Schenn, Cowen and Kadri would fit the bill for me. Cowen and Staal on the blueline would be down right frightening and could be the two towers of power for many years.

Heck I'd love to flip him to LA for Teubert and let them pick Cowen.

But size and skill are two things Sather could bring in if he makes room for some young Russian forwards by moving current roster guys off too.

You don't get a Getzlaf or a Staal by trading for them once they're established as big skilled players.

Until Atlanta's ownership woes get sorted out, you can bank on them sticking with young and cheap.

I think 4 firsts is overly hopeful, A 1st, 2nd, and 3rd is possible, and two 1sts, a 2nd and a 3rd would be ideal.

I don't think the KHL offers any compensation though.

This guys seems to want it all... the right teammates, the right city, the right money. He doesn't seem to want to play a full season ever. It'll be like Bure all over again, which was fine at the time because there was no cap.

The QO's to the Rangers minor league players.These are almost always 2 way deals.

Vladimir Denisov-$879,375
Dane Byers-$660,000
Greg Moore-$635,250
Corey Poter-$588,500
Matt Zaba-$574,750

Joe Barnes will not be given a QO making him an UFA.

Unlike some proposals I've recently seen from "Ranger Nation", I think this is a very good one. However, I think Atlanta knows they've got a bargain in White as IMHO, he was the second best UFA contract last year to only the Isles and Mark Streit.

I doubt they'll actively seek to move him when they're not in the business of spending money. You've also got to look at the Gomez vs. White and determine if you can enough to take on all that salary. I think they're production is on the same level and it's not worth the higher salary only for a "name".

Lastly, Atlanta doesn't appear to be in win-now mode and thus, moving a top 10 pick in a very strong draft would definitely sting and be counter to them building.

The one aspect that blows rational thinking out of the water is their desire to appease Kovalchuk who's quickly approaching UFA status. If bringing in Gomez works to satisfy Kovalchuk, then a deal like this makes better sense (although not to me).

i wouldnt touch that trade with a 10foot pole. three of those players are IN THE NHL RIGHT NOW, why trade for a pick that you never know....could turn out to be say...Pavel Brendl? that trade is going to haunt us and its always in the back of my mind when people make such bazaar proposals. your crazy to do that trade, idc what that pick can become, id rather not morgage the WHOLE future for just one pick who might not develop to be what we drafted him for.

no thanks to that....seriously people have to realize that teams that high up arent going to do a trade like that unless they are getting boatloads of picks back.

Your very very wrong. This is not a baazar proposal in facts its a very realistic one for a few reasons that your naive little mind fails to realize. (thats for making fun of my proposal)

1. Frees up cap space. 7.3 gone for Gomez, Korpedo's 1 mil, Zherdevs QO would have been around 3ish so thats 11 million.

We bring back a fully capable roster player in Todd white, and get a top 5 pick to adress our needs. So overall we free up 8.5 million in cap space with Whites 2.5 cap hit.

If you pass up on that deal when you have the chance to clear that capspace and bring back a top 5 pick, your a tool.

No team is going to give boatloads of picks any more because in the NEW NHL you simply can't do that. You need to have build a winning team with high profile players, your role players, and then a few players on ELC's. You can't draft players without picks.

This would accomplish a ton of things for the Thrashers, a #1 center and winger and still have a first round pick.

Rangers get a top 5 pick and who knows maybe they could even move up another spot or two to 3rd or 2nd overall and get a player like Evander Kane or Hedman. It would be alot different cost wise moving from 4th to 2nd versus 19th to 2nd.

That would get us out of CAP HELL and give us plenty of wiggle room.

It is a fair trade from both sides.

We bring back a fully capable roster player in Todd white, and get a top 5 pick to adress our needs. So overall we free up 8.5 million in cap space with Whites 2.5 cap hit.

If you pass up on that deal when you have the chance to clear that capspace and bring back a top 5 pick, your a tool.

No team is going to give boatloads of picks any more because in the NEW NHL you simply can't do that. You need to have build a winning team with high profile players, your role players, and then a few players on ELC's. You can't draft players without picks.

see the funny thing is is that that is a totally unrealistic trade. NO GM, i repeat NO GM would trade that many ROSTER PLAYERS for PROPSECTS UNLESS THEY ARE IN A REBUILD. WE ARE NOT IN A REBUILD ANYMORE!!!! so you would never see a GM especially Sather make a trade like that. the only way you see Gomez traded is if we take someone who makes a little less money and has a contract that runs out in a year or two. Rozy would be the one who would gets us picks or prospects since his actual salary is at or lower then his cap hit.

and i honestly think that Atlanta will not move their 4th overall pick because of the fact that even though they want to try and make moves to help persuade Kovalchuk to stay there, but they ARE A REBUILDING TEAM! they need all of the picks they can get so if they do get kovalchuk resigned they can actually build a proper team around him this time.

Todd White on any other team is nothing mroe then a 3rd line centerman. we have enough 2-3-4th line centerman. he had a good year because he got playing time and was playing on a line with kovalchuk for games at a time.

im all for freeing up cap space, but you do that trade our lineup gets very very very bland on talent real quick. zherdev is our most talented offensive player, korpikoski is a still developing player who is a good all around player. and if your atlanta, and u have owners who dont really like spending money at this time, you honestly think they will take on 11 million in salary, and then have to resign a bunch of guys? so yea....unrealistic
