Grant will turn 25 this August. He is too old for entry level system. Doesn't really matter because he probably signed a 1 year/two way contract. $525,000 is the NHL minimum for 11-12. $70,000 AHL?

Come on, be fair. It was written in longhand.

I like that he was able to step in an contribute right away. Not everyone the Whale has looked at this season has been able to contribute at all. If helps bolster the team's postseason chances, that's good for the Ranger prospects and that's OK with me.


Hagelin and Kreider come to mind.

Don't know why we sign guys like this instead of that one guy from our TC squad. Oh well.

Also if that makes it 49 contracts you have to assume the organization thinks a few of our guys (Kreider, Werek(?), Hagelin, Horak, etc) may not sign this year, or until the summer.

Looks like Grant signed a 2 year deal

Quote:
Former Westside Warriors forward Tommy Grant has signed a two-year entry level contract with the NHL's New York Rangers.
Quote:
"Tommy has worked very hard for this opportunity," says UAA head coach Dave Shyiak.

"He is one step closer to chasing his dream of playing in the NHL. We are excited for him and are thankful for his four years of dedication to the Seawolf hockey program."
http://www.castanet.net/news/Sports/...s-with-Rangers

It's not an ELC. He is too old. Even if Grant was 24 instead of 25 at 9/15,he would have signed a 1 year ELC.

The Grant contract kicks in next season. The Rangers 48 SPCs right now. The recent signings will not count against the 50 SPC limit until 2011-12.

The Rangers have 28 SPCs for next season which includes McIlrath whose contract will slide and won't count against the 50 SPC limit unless he plays for the Rangers next season.

http://www.capgeek.com/reserve_lists...2&year_id=2011

Where is the problem with the SPC limit?

Are you sure? What kind of agreement allows him to be playing right now then?

A 2 year deal pro-rated for "time served" this season + next season would make more sense.

I'm guessing whatever contract allowed him to play for Hartford this past weekend without having this contract in place

I was under the impression you had to be released from your ATO or PTO before signing an NHL contract, but perhaps that's only before he plays in the NHL.

Isn't that only if your ATO or PTO will expire before the end of the season?

Good for him.

Sounds like a he busted his tail and made an impression on some people.

Decisions to sign players are not made lightly. It will be interesting to see how he develops.

The guy looks like a vampire

but whatever, if he helps the Whale, good stuff.

As for people whinning anout his contract for next year and the 50 cap limit and worrying how there won't be room for Kreider, Hagelin, MclIrath, Thomas, the Easter Bunny, Hanukkah Harry, Brad Richards, etc.

The following people are pretty much guaranteed to come off the books this summer: Frolov, Propsal, McCabe, Eminger, Gilroy, White, Bickel, McCue, Williams, DiDomonte, Soryal, Dupont.

Not to mention Drury and Redden and who knows with F-tank and V-Tank although unless he pulls an Ozolinsh for five games in a row I'd welcome F-Tank back, and V-Tank should be on the 3rd pair to start next season.

I think your forgetting Pashnin, who has been playing very well in Russia.

Grant is playing in the AHL under an amateur tryout. His 2 year contract kicks in starting next season.

03/26/2011 Tommy Grant (LW) Connecticut ADD Signed to ATO
http://theahl.com/stats/transactions...&f_team_id=307

The Flyers signed Matt Read to a 3 year contract. He was also too old for an ELC. He signed an ATO to play in the AHL for the rest of this season. His contract starts in 11-12.

28 SPCs. The Rangers have the room to re-sign their 5 group II's-Callahan,Dubinsky,AA,Boyle and Sauer. 33 SPCs. Werek,Hagelin and Horak. 36 SPCs. If Kreider signs. 37 SPCs. Blake Parlett. 38 SPCs.Figure that Chad Johnson,Weise and Valentenko are re-signed. 41 SPCs without the Rangers moving any contracts. Still gives them plenty of room to re-sign some of their group III's(Fedotenko,Eminger,etc)and sign other players(Brad Richards). Sather moved Voros and Hillier for Eminger and then Brashear and Rissmiller for White freeing up 2 SPCs last summer.

There is a clause in the CBA which allows team to sign players to SPCs and not have it count against the current season.

50.8 Prohibited SPC Terms and Practices

Quote:
(d) No Club or Player may enter into an SPC that does not cover at least the
then-current League Year. The foregoing does not apply to an SPC entered into pursuant
to Section 50.5(f) above, or to Unsigned Draft Choices or Draft Related Unrestricted Free
Agents, who shall be permitted to sign an SPC during the period from March 1 through
June 1 immediately preceding the League Year in which such SPC is to take effect.
page 220

After March 1.

Nope. His contract is up this summer. This article is from the prospect camp last June.

http://rangers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=533187

Quote:
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2009 KHL Junior Draft, Pashnin will return to Russia on Friday night, once the Rangers mini-camp is over. He has one year remaining on his deal with CSKA, where he recorded five points and totaled 52 penalty minutes last season.

Make no mistake, though. Pashnin might be playing in the KHL this season, but his goal is to be a National Hockey League defenseman.

I would like to play in the NHL because it is the best league, said Pashnin.
