Not sure if that link works but he is saying that rangers are attempting to deal some rfa's in order to sign stamkos instead of Richards. Just want to get his stuff on record to see exactly how much of it doesn't happen lol
This is Eklund's time of year, and he'll be damned if he's not going to party to the hilt. Again, the Rangers have $25.5 million in cap space. IF, (and that is a very unlikely IF), the Rangers would not have to move any of the RFAs if they were to pursue Stamkos instead of Richards.
FORWARDS Brad Richards ($6.500m) / Steven Stamkos ($7.500m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Wojtek Wolski ($3.800m) / Artem Anisimov ($1.850m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.000m)
Carl Hagelin ($0.662m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Mats Zuccarello-Aasen ($1.750m)
Sean Avery ($1.937m) / Brian Boyle ($1.525m) / Brandon Prust ($0.800m)
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Mike Sauer ($1.500m) / Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m)
Tim Erixon ($1.750m) / Michael Del Zotto ($1.087m)
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m) / Martin Biron ($0.875m)
BUYOUTS: Chris Drury ($3.716m)

give richards a cap circumventing type deal.
HIGHLY doubt you'll get those two that cheap. Possible but HIGHLY doubtful.
Oh tell me, person who has zero reading comprehension the significance of me saying a friend sent me this link and how that translates into me being a follower of fraudland.
Why do some people insist on making the thread about the poster of the thread, rather then the actual content which has nothing to do with my beliefs with regards to hockey.
And with respect to the bolded part... when you have people like Pierre Mcguire who actually know a thing or two about hockey saying he would be surprised if Parise was with the Devils next year... is it really that off base?
I know your reading comprehension is iffy, but the first post says it all, and it isn't to wordy either so you may be able to understand it I know you have a hard time actually comprehending a post.
LOL if you are going to post Eklund then flimsy excuses like "my friend sent me the link" aren't enough to keep people from getting annoyed at you. You still decided to post it. That said sticking to parise it would obviously be fantastic to get a player like that. We don't need a rumor from that idiot Eklund to discuss how cool it would be and what it would take just like how we discuss stamkos.
I mean obviously we've got a huge glut of Defensive talent/prospects so maybe it'd be a .02 % chance if we had done this before th draft...now it's a .001 % chance lol.
A guy like Parise is why people fantasize about trading Girardi along with MDZ and Kreider. But it'd probably take even more
