I don't see Callahan or Hank getting much of a raise. They are paid quite well.. put a team that can win and Hank will stay. Girardi probably gets a raise

Anyone know the situation with Jagr?
He doesn't look ready to retire

Streit, 35, had spoken of wanting to return as the 2013 season wound down, but he and the Islanders are far apart in contract requirements with the July 5 start of free agency looming. The Islanders are believed to have made a three-year offer for the same $4.75 million per season that Lubomir Visnovsky accepted on the eve of the trade deadline (Visnovsky's deal is for two years), but Streit is looking for north of $5.5 million per season.

With the free agent market for defensemen very thin, Streit could command $6 million per year and even possibly get a four-year deal. The Islanders wanted Streit back to keep the continuity Garth Snow has built, but the Isles GM is also not interested in busting his salary structure to keep Streit.

The Rangers can't afford $5.5M-$6M. Even if they could,Streit is 35 years old. 35 plus contract.

You don't see Lundqvist getting much of a raise? Or Callahan?

Ahahaha. Whichever team pays him that needs to fold and have their heads examined.

Although if Wideman can get 5.5....

Streit can go **** himself with those demands. Age backwards and learn to play defense and we can talk.

Any chance the Rangers deal Clowe's rights before the draft or July 5th? What kind of return would the Rangers get?

Yeah that's a deal messer upper for sure. Too much money and length for the 35 y/o. Cap going down need to give our guys a raise and yeah. No room for 5 and a half and up.

I'm scared about that too now. Regarding trading rights to Clowe, I don't think that would give us much in return if any.

Free Agency starting on the 5th is huge for us, this way Sather wakes up on the 1st, "signs" a bunch of guys to ridiculous contracts, leaves to go fishing without realizing he didn't actually sign anyone. On the 5th Clark and Gorton do the real signings.

Giving him that kind of money with I'm sure at least 4 years would be absolutely asinine. He's another shoulder injury away from being Chris Drury 2.0.
If he gets an updated new contract, he is already Drury 2.0

1 more year. Henrik and Callahan will get paid. Girardi too. The 8 years also means Henrik can demand the maximum years allowed. It goes both ways.

Haha.

Gorton is a very good guy for the Rangers to have in the org. I think we see some more hands on work by him this offseason.

Look at the free agent list for defensemen. It sucks.

http://capgeek.com/ufa-finder?position_id=D

Streit won't get $5.5M? Pat Brisson is a very good agent. He sees the free agent market.

Yep, Sather and Gorton will follow my lead and get piss drunk on 4th of July, then make hungover trades/signings on the 5th. Calling it.

The CBA allows teams to re-sign their own players to 8 year contracts. Free agent can only(only)sign 7 years maximum. The CBA has contract limits which weren't in the previous CBAs.

I do believe each will get a slight raise not much though. I also think Hank and Cally love NY and will take fair deals if we have a contending team
