Excellent contract. Glad that we stayed away from the craziness and are getting it done with our guys.

What about a 3 year deal to take him 1 year before UFA?

That seems a bit much for Stepan. He had one good half season and two underwhelming playoffs. You can bet Sather will use those playoffs against him in negotiations - plus McDonagh was arbitration eligible, Stepan wasn't.

Agreed on the not 4 years deal though. It'll be 3, 5 or more. Keep him an RFA or RFA+UFA years. No way he lets him sign a deal taking him straight to UFA. My guess is he also signs for 6 years, with a cap hit of about 3.8-4.2.

McDonagh's contract, my guess looks like 3.6, 3.8, 4, 5.4, 5.6, 5.8. Cap hit of 4.7. Since Stepan has one non arbitration eligible year instead of one UFA year for a 6 year deal, even if they got the same sums for most of the years, you'd have something like 2.8, 3.6, 3.8, 4, 5.4, 5.6 leaving a cap hit of 4.2 for 6 years. My guess is he likely doesn't receive the same amounts as McDonagh and has a cap hit of 3.9 for 6 years. That, or if you take the first 3 years and he signs for 3 years, maybe a cap hit of 3.1-3.4. I think it's the wiser decision to go more long term considering UFA years will only get more and more expensive in the future. Buy low now when the cap is low and 5 years from now, you'll be wondering how the hell he has a cap hit below 4 mil.

Nice, 4.7 is a great cap hit for a player like McD over six years.

Giroux got 3 x 3.75

Stepan would probably be 3 x 3.5

It could be doable depending on what Hags and Zuke get (assuming we still want to re-sign Zuke).

On the nose! Nice.

Extremely happy with the terms, and more importantly that Mac will be here longterm. The guy is a flat out special player, and the best skating defenseman on the Rangers since Brain Leetch.

It's really a joy to watch this kid play on a nightly basis, and the sky is the limit for him. Great signing!

Giroux had 2 PPG playoffs and 1 PPG full season. He also signed at 23 (McDonagh-style. He was arbitration eligible like him iirc. Stepan isn't). So Stepan would have one much cheaper year at least. Steps has also only had 1 PPG half season and two underwhelming playoffs. Even regarding the difference in cap, I still think it'd be more along the lines of what I outlined above.

Giroux wasn't arb eligible when he signed that deal.

Excellent deal. Happy with everything the Rangers have done this offseason... except the Richards non-buyout of course.

Hmm, I know he signed it when he was 22 before the end of that year, but wouldn't he have been if he had waited the year out?

My bad, just looked at it more closely. He signed his ELC at an age where he'd need 4 years of experience.

Gross saying it isn't done yet:

Ryan McDonagh's agent says "close but no deal yet." Sides still working to finalize deal. All signs positive, though.
Might just be figuring out NTC/NMC stuff for the 3 UFA years.

Falk, Kreider and Miller doesnt count if playing in AHL. (160 games under age 25 if signed before age 21, 80 games if signed at age 21-22 etc.).



btw Moore is RFA or not?
I think capgeek is wrong http://capgeek.com/player/1541
Moore already played in AHL/NHL in 2010-2011
and
If a player aged 18 or 19 signs an entry-level contract with a club (with his age calculated on Sept. 15 of the year he signed the contract) but does not play in at least 10 NHL games, the contract will "slide" or be extended one year. The extension does not apply if the player turns 20 between Sept. 16 and Dec. 31 in the year he signed the contract.

Moore turns 20 at Nov 19 2010

Doesn't mean anything for Hank's deal because Hank is signed for this year already.

Since he only played 2 NHL games his first year, his AHL year doesn't count. It slides because he wasn't 20 yet and he could play there because he was drafted from the USHL.

Miller would have been in the same spot this year if he didn't play so many NHL games.

Lundqvist's contract depends on the complimentary buyout of Richards at june 2014, on the salary cap in 2014, on extension of Callahan,Brassard,Girardi etc.

They are working on an extension with him. This deal has no effect on Hank. Anyway, Henrik is already making 7M/year, so it's not like he's going to get much of a raise. But the point is, any raise doesn't effect our cap until next season, when we'll have quite a bit of space due to the Richards buyout.
