how many times can Katie Strang tweet that the rangers don't have any money? if the rangers don't have money to sign Matt Hendricks, then there is no discussion.

we're either making a trade, or trading someone to make room to sign someone...

Hendricks to Nashville - 4 years, $1.85 million per season.
I think the term is a bigger problem for someone that age.

They must be looking to pay out the ass for Mcdonagh and Stepan.

It amazes me that so many people gloss over this. People in the media, too.

I suppose cost is big + but intangibles require execution. Slightly off as a whole and the intangibles are gone.

Nystrom or Lapierre would be ideal. Moore would be cheap and a decent pick up, but is he in shape?

Hey, if it were up to me he would have been bought out. But at this point he's a Ranger for another year. Hopefully AV doesn't try and force him into a top line roll if he's clearly no longer suited for it. Time will tell. Considering what was available this UFA class and Sather's apparent incapability of not spending all his money, perhaps we'll be better off for it in the long run. We'll see.

$$$ based on needs of teams, not just quality of players.

Seriously? We couldn't afford a player at 1.85m?
Are we really that tight to the cap.

You can't compare a UFA contract to a RFA contract. It's apples and oranges in terms of leverage. Clarkson's deal is ridiculous, no doubt, but who cares what Tavares makes? Would you compare Clarkson's deal to Landeskog's? Of course not, it's a UFA deal vs. an ELC. Same thing applies to Tavares' RFA deal.

AV said they are looking at defensive depth more than offensive depth.
I had a feeling he was going to mention the missing RHD on the PP, but didn't want to disclose. Just a feeling though.

Such a mistake not signing Weiss. God damn it that was the one signing I've been preaching. Detroit gets him on a great deal too. I expected it to be low cost as well. What a terrible shame.

When you only have $1m-2m or, at most, $3m to spend, $4.9m is an impossibility.

this is an AWFUL free agent class. Grabovski is probably the only player im interested in coming into the day, and even then only on the cheap, which he wont get im sure.

Are there any reports of NYR talking to players (signed or available)?

Seems like we're standing pat in our interest because of assumption of lack of cap.
