The Canucks don't have anyone of interest to the Rangers for any of those players.

If and a BIG if this is true, than it has to be Dubinsky. Ani and Boyle aren't making enough to save any cap space (plus centers of Richards, Step, Ani & Boyle is nice), and Callahan is to much of a favorite.
14 million but you still have to resign Boyle, Anisimov, Callahan, and Boyle as well as a couple other free agents to fill your roster. One of those 4 will most likely have to go, and more likely one of the guys getting the bigger money. I would say probably Dubinsky. Not that you want to trade him but sometimes you have to lose some to gain. In the end you will still receive an upgrade in Richards (if you sign him, which I think you will) and whatever you get back in a trade.

how? we have 25 mill in cap space as of right now.

thats enough to give

Dubi - 4.5
Cally - 4.5
Boyle - 1.2
Ani - 1.2
Sauer - 1
Eminger - .8

and STILL have 12.8 Million in cap space

The 14 million i was stating before included the base salary of all RFA from the prior year.

It's kind of the 11th hour to be moving RFA's, don't you think?

How many times does it need to be posted? The Rangers have enough money to re-sign all RFAs and offer Brad Richards at least 8M per season. I have spelled this out numerous times via Cap Geek but I will not do it again.

Oh. My. God.

We have enough cap space to offer Callahan and Dubi 4.5M each, Anisimov and Boyle 1.5M each, Richards 8M, and Sauer 1M. Do some research and use Cap Geek.

$25 million for Richards and 5 RFAs (no more than $13 mil total for the RFAs), and a couple of defensemen from within will cost about $3.5 total, so you do the math. They don't have to move a soul. It's up to Richards, now.

So sorry I don't consistently check capgeek for every team in the NHL and try to estimate the value of their RFA's. Try to rely on fans of other teams for stuff like that. Simple explanation of how they all fit in would have been an easy reply, and all I wanted. Stop being an ass about it.

It has been posted on this board COUNTLESS times in COUNTLESS threads. I have posted the figures myself about 3 or 4 times now and others have done it as well. Do your own research and you won't have anyone "being an ass about it".

Not happening. The Rangers have enough space to re sign all of their Fas and Richards with some room to spare. Unless one of the offers blows the Rangers out of the water, it isn't happening.

The Rangers are attempting to clear cap space apparently. While most assume this is part of their plan to get space for Richards, but don't count out the Rangers in the Stamkos hunt. The Rangers bought out Drury today, but may still need more space...

Read everything else in this thread debunking any need for cap space.

unless we really are going for Stamkos, then we need the space. But there is 0 chance that Tampa doesn't match any offer for Stamkos, so really

I'm sorry I haven't been in every thread on the boards. Excuse my ignorance please.

All you had to do was explain how your cap would work out. Look how easy it was for you. Had you done that at the beginning rather than ranting about how much space you had you would ahve saved us both some time.

The only way we get him is by trading, anyway. Sather will not use an offer sheet.

All you had to do was go on Capgeek and find out how our cap would work out. Look how easy it was for me. Had you done that at the beginning, you would ahve saved us both some time.

For Callahan or Dubinsky who are we getting back?--Paajarvi, Hall, Eberle? It would have to be a key young player or it's not going to work from the Rangers perspective and I really don't see the Oilers trading any of those guys.

From the Canucks?-----?

Anyway the Rangers should have enough money to sign them all with no problem.

Do you have any contracts running out for any of your young defense-men? I could see the Rangers moving one so that they have cap space in the future so as to not lose a young D-Man.

Same reason the Canucks did not offer Ehrhoff more, they need to resign Edler in a couple years so they needed to save cap space in the future.
