Not much of a surprise. I just wonder why they waited so long to do it.

Holik is going straight back to the devils where he will be the shut down center he was with them.

eh, whatever works. Frankly he would have been good to keep if he wasn't so expensive, if the rangers could have just had some way to lower the salary, i think that would have been the way to go

soo, they gotta start lookin for a center or two

my theory is the rangers were waiting for the knicks to have their lovefest with larry brown yesterday and didn't want to interrupt all the hype and coverage surrounding it.

does anyone know if sather and co. are going to have a "state of the organization" press conference like other teams?

Whenever the board gets alot of hits (a number that the server cannot handle) we go into Pat Battle mode.

Really? TSN said that Nolan was not going to be bought out. They are reporting that TO believes they owe Nolan nothing because his injury, and subsequent surgery, was not hockey related and so he can not take his option contract.

Yeah this view blows.

Anyway, this had to be done. Holik was a good, gritty player who always showed up to play, but in this new NHL, he just isnt worth the max contract.

There are good FAs this year, and there will be great young, franchise studs out there in the future that this money can be more useful for.

I guess this makes Nylander our #1 centre. I wonder who we will go after in FAs...

ALSO: I heard Holik would make a b-line to NJ if he was bought out.. I hope not.

Not for nothing but

Nylander was our #1 center with or without Holik.

Holik is out of place on the 1st or 2nd lines and his time in NY pretty much proved that.

anyway, Since I have not yet seen this on any major website I'll hold off on commenting until I know for sure he's been bought out.

Teams have less than 3 hours to make their decisions.

should be a very interesting afternoon.

Yup, they just said it again, but they said "Word is Rangers Bought out Holik" So not really a confirmation.

Well right now with no trades we assign big Jake Taylor to lay one on him/contain him lol.

Or trade up to number two and RELISH those JJ specials in a couple of years.
