Thankfully the Rangers don't like the Russians so they don't have these issues

Kovalchuk took less money in the first 2 years of his contract(last 2 years of the CBA) because Grossman thought the PA would do something about escrow.

The less money the players make, the more likely it is that the KHL becomes a legitimate competitor league.

They need to get rid of some serious issues first, however. Don't like to bring it up but there have been some serious consequences with the lack of standards in that league.

Yeah, haha. I think we all got into far fewer arguments with the herd thinned out a bit.

Yes, and it's such a topheavy league. The bottom half of the KHL is pretty damn weak, and they don't have nearly the money that the big clubs do. The lack of parity there is pretty significant. Far, far greater than in the NHL.

I'm sure every board is like that. Personally I had to put hockey completely right out of mind for the last four months... y'know... serenity now.

But what I came over to your board for was to ask what the hell is Sather going to do with Redden? Sather gave him that ridiculous contract and thats on him; but he also did so under the old CBA rules. How is it fair that the Rangers will now have a cap hit of over 5 million to keep him in the minors? Buy him out before the summer and you're still stuck with half of his salary.

For me it's hard to feel bad for Sather with the way throws money around but it's about the principle here.

I think it's stupid, too, but it's not a big deal for the organization. The team has the cap space to carry the applicable portion of his hit this season, and then he'll be complianced in the summer. It's a waste of Jim Dolan's money, but none of us give one **** about that.

There could be a team interested in trading Redden to get to the cap floor. Not likely, but plausible.

Tortorella didn't want to play him three years ago, and he has only slowed down since. He may be serviceable but I think it's just a ship that has sailed.

Not if you plan on buying him out in the offseason. No point in risking the injury.

i hope they are night games. I'm already going to have to switch my schedule but would love it so I can take a morning shift and have the rest of the night off to relax.

Agree“@Rudistic: @RealKyper @DougMaclean @darenmillard i think the NHL should offer fans free centre ice. The cable program for the NHL. ”

Also:

Craig Custance ‏@CraigCustance
Rangers and Wade Redden's camp meeting today which might help clarify his future.

Rangers-Bruins would be a fun way to start the season. Makes sense too with Pittsburgh likely playing Philly, they'll want the Devils @ Isles

Redden will be sitting on his ass for the next few months and then he'll get bought out in the summer. Not much to discuss.

Yeah I'm not really sure what there was to meet about, but whatever. Maybe discuss trading him right now to a team that might be interested. Who knows.

Larry Brooks ‏@NYP_Brooksie
The Redden cap hit against NYR this year will be $5.6M presuming he is waived out of NHL.


If you didn't have to worry about him faking an injury so that he can't be bought out, they might as well have kept him on the NHL squad. Oh well.

I have a question that may have been answered already, what happens to these guys with the ridiculous contract lengths (Kovy, Ovi, etc.) and the new CBA? Are their contracts going to be shortened to the 7/8 yr max limit or do they have to negotiate new contracts? Or, are these guys "grandfathered" in? I've never understood how this is gonna work.
