I just dont understand the thought process of buying out Grabo for Clarkson. They gave a worse contract to a worse player. WTF

They're paying for toughness up front.

other than Lecavalier and MAYBE Horton, Rangers "got" the best player out there in Richards by simply not buying him out.

So Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Alfredsson, Weiss

Where does Ferraro and Sheahan fit into the Wings future plans?

I'd be all over prying Landon Ferraro away from Detroit.

He's tough?

If the Rangers are serious about increasing their skill level, Grabovski makes sense.

I haven't seen one deal I'd be happy about if it were the Rangers doing it. Even the ones that "aren't bad." Well, they're not good either.

Agreed. Although, by the time the 7 years is up, the number could drop from 10.8% of the Cap to 7.8%, which won't be so bad for him at that point, most likely.

Eh, not really. Far better player than Clarkson and he got essentially the same contract.

40-50 point center. 2nd/3rd line tweener. $3.5m isn't bad.

Understood, but that glass man isn't going to survive. I think his deal is bad and that makes Clarkson's look even worse.

These are the same contracts that caused the most recent lockout. 7 years for Clarkson? God damn.

I don't understand how these GM's haven't learned a single lesson year after year. How can you justify giving Clarkson a deal like that?
