If he's bought out, he's a free agent and will likely command more than $2.75M.

That said, I dont think hes great or anything, but beggars cant be choosers at this point when it comes to getting a solid, fiscally responsible center.
Telegraphing passes to AO for a one timer aside, I did not see much from him, especially on the back checking side.

I'm going to assume if he is bought out he probably still garners enough interest to make his contract relatively high.

Elder has a bad season. Value will never be lower. Staal's won't be any higher.

They're trying to move him to free up salary so they can re-sign Kane and Toews, not take on a $5.5M defenseman.

And Girardi isn't being traded.

Maybe, but what then are we giving up to get him? If he's making more than 2.75 mil, we probably can't afford him anyway.

Why would the Rangers have to give anything up? The Coyotes are considering buying him out. Rangers would be saving them money.

We're taking him for future considerations? I'm sure the league would be okay with that lol. We'd have to give them something. Arizona isn't going to do us any favors just to save a little money. I'm sure there are other teams that would offer something for Ribeiro at half price.

A conditional 7th rounder, then.

Everyone would hate Ribiero pretty quickly if the Rangers signed him. He's not a very "high effort" player

@DarrenDreger: Kesler's agent, Kurt Overhardt has high praise for Canucks GM Jim Benning. Says Benning worked very hard with the 2 teams given (Chi-Ana).

Gee, don't see NYR on there....

@drosennhl: Chicago re-signs Jeremy Morin to a 2-year contract extension. Could he be trade bait now?

As I am watching the interviews with Gorton and Clarke, they specifically mention Bourque, Kristo, Lindberg, Haggerty and McCarthy on offense, Allen and McIlrath. He mentions they think both Allen and McIlrath may need a little bit more time. It's hard to jump into the NHL at that position.

I don't think it really matters though in this situation, he'd be a good center option, and would probably help the PP.
He's a power play specialist at best, he's bad at even strength and needs heavily sheltered minutes. He would be a bad option for a team looking for a center that could give them regular 5 on 5 minutes.

If the cap really is $68M, get ready for 3-4 rookies on the team next year.

Ribeiro would be an ideal replacement for Richards, IMO. Probably an upgrade, more likely. He's a wizard on the PP.

Right now the cap for next season will be at $68M and that's causing problems. But wait ! NHL and NHLPA are still talking. Final # to come.
Wow, major development. If true, I expect to see more trades with salary moving tonight and tomorrow. A bunch of teams counting on $70MM.

Told the Coyotes are strongly considering buying out Mike Ribeiro. The veteran forward is under contract through 2016-2017. Not official.
Riberio was awful during the second half of the season. Just awful. Tippett made him a healthy scratch for several important games.

There was some noise about off ice and perhaps personal issues in the local paper. That may be driving this. I never heard anything directly.

For the Coyotes, eating $11MM in salary would be a financial disaster.

Well my one Coyotes fan friend told me that Tippett didn't put him in a position to succeed, and he's usually pretty on point. Was he really awful enough to warrant a demotion?

Richards was supposed to be a wizard on the PP as well. That is what scares me.

Well, he was pretty good for us on the PP. Maybe not what we hoped for, but he definitely wasn't Redden or anything.

800k AAV according to Rosen. Slats should definitely make a call.
