Wolski

So rumors are the Rangers may buy him out as it's cheap on the cap and gives them space to sign someone like Richards. I personally want him to stay.

At the very least the guy has to be worth something in a trade to a team way under the cap.

so with that what would be your teams offer for Wolski?

Wolski --> KHL


not sure why but I think a KHL Team will offer him money he can't refuse

Wolski sucks. I wouldn't give up a 7th rounder for him.

eeeek from an Avs fan, did he not have some good yrs and is still mid 20s?

If they buy him out Sather did make a terrible buy out in Rozsival into an affordable one in Wolski. I just think he has some value as a Ranger or in a deal at the draft for a pick or two

Looks to me like Wolski has played his way off of 3 teams in 3 years. I'd say his next offer comes from the KHL.

He floats too much to want on any team I cheer for. Need guys that give it their all every night. I'd pass even at the minimum prefering a youngster that goes all out.

Why trade for Wolski when it's expected that the Rangers will buy him out?
Pay him $3.8MIL & lose assets or wait until after the buy out and sign him for much less...
a team under the cap will not take on wasted salary just to get to the floor...

a team will sign him and for a lot less than what he has been making.
he has skills, just no sense...

Is there a limit to how many players a team can buy out in the June 15th - 30th period? Will the Rangers be able to buy out all 3 of Drury, Wolski and Avery?

Good question but Avery stays. Its only one more year at 2 million. Not terrible and he is off the books.

Why would they not just bury Wolski in the AHL next season? They could just avoid any cap hit.

I could possibly see the new Winnipeg franchise taking Wolski and then buying him out, as long as NYR is willing to send a good prospect or 2 along with him for a lousy prospect or 2 (Aliu, Esposito).

What happened to Wolski?

I remember the days when he and Stastny were supposed to be the cornerstones for the Avs.

He has the "Patrick O'Sullivan" disease. Talent up the wazoo, but no desire or work ethic.

I'd say he has sense as well just no heart. He's this generation's kovalev.

Exactly. That being said, wouldn't mind seeing him in a Penguins jersey.

Wolski Vs spacek ??
Same cap hit and both for an other year but I think spacek could be helpful to the rangers if he played as a 5-6 dman around 16min a game !!

Wolski this generations Kovalev?

I'm an AVS fan and i loved this kid when he came up and showed he had great hands, good vision, and he can shoot the puck but i hope your comparison was to say a guy that just doesn't play to his potential and wasn't meant to put Wolski in the same class as Kovalev?

why would the rangers give up any good prospects or picks with Wolski just to get rid of him when we can buy him out for $666,000 this year and $333,000 next season. Makes no sense for us to give up anything of value along with him. It would be Wolski for a 2nd round pick. thats the least i would give him up for. Otherwise i would honestly keep him and give him a legit shot on a scoring line..

I know his pts at the end of the year sucked but look at who he played with.. Then look at is first 18games when he was put with stepan and zucca, he was given a real chance to succeed and had 12pts in that 18game span

I wouldn't either although I'm sure some team would give up a 3rd or something. He sure does suck though

Actually I think O'Sullivan is an even worse player myself. O'Sullivan is so god awful it makes my head hurt

Larry Brooks says Wolski will not be bought out, while another Rangers writer says he will. Who to believe?!

Part of the reason they won was because of the buyout price 1/3 instead if 1/2 of his salary.
