Christensen won't get QO

I'm not sure how accurate this source is, so feel free to change the title, but according to Nick Kypreos of sportsnet.ca, Christensen won't be getting a QO.

Sounds like NYR Lisin/ Christensen won't get qualifying offers. NY still hoping Christensen will re-sign for more term and at less money
Too bad if its true as he was the only one who seemed to gel with Gaborik.

Thoughts?

If this is true then they feel like someone can step up and do the job better or they are going to look elsewhere.

Prospal getting resigned and Stepan probably getting a LONNNNNGGGGGG look, with Anisimov being the 2nd line center.

This is interesting. I wonder if this is a sign of a bigger deal in the works.

I've edited the OP to include "NY still hoping Christensen will re-sign for more term and at less money". That's kind of a major part to omit.

That doesn't make a lot of sense though. Why would you want to commit to EC for anything more than 1 year? Can you really expect him to take less than $825K?

I liked what I saw from the guy for the last half of his time here. He clearly needs to play with talent to be effective though...

Oh well.

Christensen want's this to be his pay off year, he wants to sign a 1 year, and do well so he can land that bigger contract since he knows he's going to be playing with Gaborik, but Rangers want to lock him up at a low price for years to come so even if his performance improves like they know it can with all that finesse he has trapped in there, they dont have to pay him more for his performance that he's locked into.

Tortorella said Stepan would get a long look in camp.. I wonder if they're keeping that option open.

would be very surprising but if they can get a Savard then have Anisimov, Drury, Boyle there is no need

I hope he comes back or better yet I hope they can get Savard

I'll still hold the faith that we'll re-sign him.

Maybe they will try to get Prospal again, save some money from Christensen for him.

Who knows.

It's still a dice roll though. He's far more likely to hit the waiver wire again than he is to buck the odds and show his true potential 5 years later. Earn the pay day, then I'll worry about paying for it.

Im thinking theres a pretty big discord with how people here view our prospects and the Rangers themselves view our prospects.

They think more highly of them than we do and will give guys like Stepan a bigger chance than we may think.

Can't imagine why the Rangers would want anything more than a 1-year term for Christensen. He has yet to prove he can play consistently well on a top line for an entire season.

I like Christensen, but as a stopgap and nothing more. His mental fragility still concerns me.

I think you misread it. Less money than QO he deserves, not less than his last season salary.

NYR's Brandon Prust will get Q-offer; Erik Christensen won't, as Rangers hope for two-year deal

Sign him to a low ball contract for more than a year and he is very trade worthy. Smart if they can get it done.

Not with our current depth at center....

This guy will have his breakout year this year since he wont have to worry about how much longer he is going to be in the lineup before being on waivers again... Just watch.

BTW, what would his QO be?

Christensen should be happy to sign for two years being that this was/is probably his last stop on the NHL Train and he got a decent chance here. He's young enough that he can still cash in down the road.

EC's qualifying has to be at least 750K plus 5% so that's $787,500...I just can't believe that if they offered him 900K/yr for two years that he'd turn it down. If he holds his spot on either the first or second, he would still be young enough to get a 'big' contract after two years...

I hope they bring him back...I'm a big fan of Christensen. Underrated player, cheap date gave his all. What's the risk here?

If it's youth and Stepan is coming aboard then im ok with it...But again, I thought he would have been brought back.

I agree, he was on waivers twice and found a nitch in NY. Take 2 yrs like Boyle on the cheap. Smart cap management if they get it done
