Well there's going to be a lot of sore fannies this, now we officially have two purse swingers!!! 2.35 million? That's all? Was certain Sather would have started a bidding with himself just to retain the Magical Mr. Poti. Gotta keep him away from the Islanders, you know.

We should have let Poti walk and use his cash on Hammer. I wonder where he will end up.

isn't $2.35 million poti's qualifying offer? I don't think they could have kept him for any cheaper, and it sounds like they're trying to shop him around anyways...

Yep, that was his qualifying offer. They should have never qualified him.

no

I think Hamrlik would command a three year deal, which would not work. If Malik weren't signed to that ugly deal, then I could live with it, but I don't want 3 vet D-Men locked up for 3 years, with Tyutin, Kondratiev, Staal, Baranka etc. waiting.

I think Hamrlik said he's only interested in signing with a contender anyway.

This team needs a player like Poti to help secure the first overall pick.

Come on Brook...there's plenty of reason to qualify him at that...most of them having to do with his value to other teams in this whacked out market for blueliners. What's more shocking to me is that Kasparaitis is the 2nd highest paid player on the team and Malik is 4th.

what surprises me is that kaspar isn't even grossly overpaid in this current market. still overpaid? yeah probably, but not badly so like one might have thought...

Honestly, I've watched enough him to last a lifetime. He's not a good positional player, simply because he's unwilling to allow himself to take any form of contact. I'm not asking him to hit anyone, all I'm asking him to do is place his body between the player with the puck and the goal. That's what defenseman are supposed to do. I'm sick of his attempts to use his stick in place of his body.

Whatever anyone is willing to offer is not enough to wash the bad taste out of my mouth. And I suspect that there aren't very many GMs out there willing to give us much at all--regardless of his contract or his potential.

Well we'll have to wait and see...but I think you might be surprised in the end

5 million isn't really THAT much. Plus, these deals arent killers in the sense that they aren't long term. I would venture to guess that by the time we are legitamately in a position to contend these figures might be off the books

I agree, BR. His presence on this team still offends me. I want him gone. But, maybe some team thinks he has skills which will translate well to the "new" NHL. I guess we need to be patient and hope he builds up his trade value. There were some rumors that the Canucks were interested, but Sather's asking price was a #1 pick.

If Fedoruk can fetch a 2ed Poti should be able to get us a first. Heck Poti has way more talent than Todd "The Fridge" Fedoruk.

the resigning of Poti and the signinh of Malik, but seem fine when other teams flip out and sign defensemen to really unjustifiable contracts like Clarke did in Philly and Lamorello did in NJ with Vlad. Seriously, Vlad at $3.7M for one year, never mind another at the price vs Poti at $2.35M is a no brainer. Vllad is 37, Poti is what 28? Malik is a bargain at the price we paid to sign him compared to what NJ paid for an aging equally questionable desire (Poti). Right now Malik is a better defender. Someone, somewhere will pay a price for Poti. All it will take is patience.

I doubt anyone here thinks Malakhov is worth that contract. Does that mean we need to harp on it day in and day out? It has no effect on you or the Rangers, so why do you care who Lou signs and for how much?

That's someone else's insanity. And it just goes to show that organizations are constantly thinking that they are close to winning it all and need to get that one missing piece before some other guy does. That's the joys of competitive bidding.

But, hey, now everyone can make a splash in the free agent market and sign some overprised thirtysomething mercenary to some insane contract!

I think you're generalizing a little too much here...I think it comes down to individuals players and posters...

I for one don't think there's been a whole lot of smart signings on the blueline around the league, and it seems apparent that there's demand definitely exceeds the supply here.

What I was trying to point out with my comment is that who would have thought that Kasparaitis would be earning the 2nd most money of anyone on the team...that Malik would be the 5th highest and Poti the 6th (corrected from my original post)?

If people weren't so quick to jump down Slats' throat (really Maloney) everytime, this wouldn't be an issue. But how come whatever other teams do is always RIGHT but whatever we do is wrong?

Atlanta, write it down right now.

And yes, we should have let Poti walk. If we're lucky there might be some interest around the deadline. I sure hope so.

Actually I'd like him to hit someone..... anyone. I have to say he's my least favorite Ranger. He's been a mistake from the start. A lot of the critiques about York are true but at least he plays with heart. This guy needs to get one.
