There are tons of examples of top PA guys having terrible years after CBA negotiations. Linden and Gartner suffered after the first lockout in the '95 season. We've seen it in baseball and basketball as well. I wouldn't dismiss that rational out of hand. Yes, he is a professional and he is paid to perform and blah blah blah, but the real world has consequences and this may be one of them.

I would hope that signing Guerin and Rucinsky are mutually exclusive. Side deal or no, you cannot sign Martin to a 2 year deal and suffer a cap hit if he retires. He has too many factors that can pull him away from the league over the summer, namely returning home to raise the family and such. Besides that, why should we commit to having a 38 yr old player on the team when we will have an influx of youth by that season?

You sign one or the other to a one year deal.

Last year he Rangers did the right thing by signing several players to one year deals. You play well, you get paid. I thought Rucinsky played well and should be paid -- another one year contract. If there is a two year market for Rucinsky I suspect it would be in either St. Louis or on Long Island. I'm fine with either on a one-year contract. worst case, the season goes sour and you can clean house (again) at the trading deadline and play more kids.

Defenseman Karel Rachunek has signed a one-year contract worth $1.8M, but The Post has learned an anticipated three-year, $5.7 deal with Michal Rozsival has fallen through.

This is what Brooks has today.

Think the Rangers are going to have to pay more than $1.9 million for Rozsival now?

Well said, I completely agree.

But I'll take Guerin at a cheap price.

No, not really. Where else is Rozsival gonna go? I doubt there's a team out there that's going to pay over 2 million per and compensation for Micheal Rozsival.

Goodbye, Roseyballs!

Take your overrated +30 something, your terrible defensive lapses, and poor on-ice vision some place else.

I'd rather pay Witt 3 million a year than pay that blundering fool 2 million+ a year.

You are getting way too excited. The Rangers already qualified him. He is not going anywhere unless they walk away after the arbitration ruling.

Nowhere. I am just frightened by the thought of him being able to get a 3 year deal from the Rangers.

The Rangers don't have to accept the terms dictated by arbitration. They can either trade him or allow him to become a UFA.

1. Where did you hear this?
2. I hope it's not true.
3. If it is true, they BETTER walk.

There's no reason to give this guy the money he thinks he deserves. He's a waste of space.

Oh, it's true. He was a type-II RFA. The Rangers qualfied him, while trying to work out a contract.

We can hope so, but time will tell.

I do not disagree, but it is rather apparent that the powers that be in Rangerland like him.

Concerning Rozival...I think Sather and Maloney must share some of the concern voiced in this thread and elsewhere on the board. Based on a $44MM cap and what has happened in the marketplace this weekend, 3 years at $1.9MM per year makes him a below average salary and a relative bargain. If Rozey was a free agent, he easily be getting Kuba money. If guys like Kuba, Gill and Pothier can get bigger contracts, you would assume this would be very easy paper to move no matter what happens next year. Best case, he becomes a bargain signed for 3 years...worst case it's AMFYOYO.
