Rangers re-sign Marty Straka-1 year/$3.3 million

Quote:
The Post has learned that the 34-year-old left winger whom Tom Renney two weeks ago cited as the epitome of what the Rangers want to be, has signed a one-year contract extension through 2007-08 worth $3.3 million. Straka is earning - and that is the operative word - $3.1 million this season
http://www.nypost.com/seven/01172007...rry_brooks.htm

His third one year contract with the Rangers

$3 million for 05-06,$3.1 million for 06-07 and $3.3 million for 07-08

He is an excellent deal for his price. I don't know how he is consistently underrated. Sure, playing with Jagr helps elevate him game, but even on his own he is a great player.

If he was North American, everyone in the league would point out his work ethic and whatnot. But as it is, he is largely ignored.

That's a great price for what he brings to the team.

At least some good news during this rough stretch.

Thats a good contract especially since he will have close to 100 points this year, if he waited till seasons end he would could have had a couple offers from contenders for probably more then that.

I have to say Kaspars and Maliks pay checks. Def the two overpaid players on the team.

He's worth it, every penny. In fact give him Jagr's contract.

This is an excellent move actually!

It is better to re-sign him now then wait until the end of the season, by which time he may have close to 100 points and may want more money!

Now if we can only be this smart with Pock and resign him now before the season ends and he decides to go into free agency!

I would also resign Nylander since we don't have a lot of good centers!

Good signing. Regardless of how many kids we have coming along, we NEED capable veterans to show them the ropes on and off the ice. Straka has been a mini Graves out there this season, deserves every penny.

I'm glad he's signed...

and I'm glad he doesn't think he's worth more just because he has good stats playing with Jagr. $3.3MM seems to be a fair price for both players.

Bluenote - agreed - he's a versatile player - just his production decreases signficantly when not playing with Jagr, but his effort is to me admired and the fact that he goes out there and plays like he cares is a plus for any kid coming through the system.

I agree. Rockström basically said the same thing a awhile ago. Jagr floats through practises and training camps ect., but that its harder to find players with better attitude off the ice then Straka and Nylander.

Jagr floats?
Didn't we all read that he is staying extra time after practise for shooting?

Yet another example that it's NOT the same old Rangers.

You want to play here? No cushy long term deals for 30 somethings. Play first. Work hard. Then you get paid.
