Good luck to Mats. Always liked him, never really got a fair shake in NY in my opinion. Others will say he clearly wasn't good enough for the top lines, and was too small and not physical enough for the 3rd and 4th lines. Thought he'd be good for a lower seeded team on their top two lines and top power-play. If he went to a team like the Isles (sorry Isles fans), he could have had a very Parenteau-like season in my opinion. Guess he had it with NY though.

Bummer but he took the money instead of trying to make the NHL again. Do the rangers retain his rights as a rfa?

He is still an RFA, the Rangers can qualify him and retain his rights. Similar to Ottawa and Filatov.

His agent says he haven't signed anything http://www.vg.no/sport/ishockey/arti...artid=10070817

Bargaining chip for 1 way contract maybe?

Well I just talked to people close to Mats and they also said it was BS, nothing is signed and nothing will be signed untill at least after the end of the season talks with the Rangers.

And his agent should know, as he is the representative of the player in Europe.

It only means that the signing went fast and this close people are unaware of it. It's official Metallurg website, they won't publish anything until they get the players signature.

I fully support your statement. Of course, I did not speak to player not Mg officials but I have experience with KHL clubs websites. I dont remember information on club´s website which would be false (about players contracts). Even Salavat Yulaev Ufa published info about re-signing Blatak a few days after info was in media. IMO clubs dont publish BS info about contracts

Zuccarello spoke with a norwegian hockeysite and said he haven't signed anything so I guess that seals it and title should be changed. He also tweeted Thanks 4 great support this season #whale fans and #NYR fans u r the best. I hope to see u next year in New York.

I actually recall something like that happening with a Finnish player, I think it was last year.

Well he obviously signed the contract so fast he didn't realize what happened.

he probably signed it but has an out clause incase an nhl team offers him a contract. him and his agent probably didnt want this info out as it may hurt his chances to sign a nhl contract so they are denying it

I was just about to post the same. I think some Finn had a similar contract but he apparently had only a verbal agreement with the KHL club, hadn't even signed any pre-contract.

Zucca has confirmed there has been an offer from Russia but that he hasn't made up his mind yet and as of now that's how it stands. I've no idea why a Russian club would post his signing before it's happened but that's the way it is sometimes.

OT, but I think he would be a great replacement for PA Parenteau with the Islanders. He is very talented.

He can if he had actually signed. His contract with the Rags are up and if he decided not to stay at any cost then he could very well say so.

Yes but he is also very small. If he'd been a couple of inches taller and the Isles had had some bigger guys in their lineup then I think he'd be a good fit too.
