Said in the other thread -- surprisingly OK with this.

The term is great. Two years is what I'd want.

Like the term/money. But if we got him instead of Stralman, that hurts.

Like I said, this was pretty much a slam dunk to me.

RH shot on the PP, but now that he signs here you know his game is going south quick

I was waiting for like 2 for 12, so the money is better than I thought.

I like the cap number, better than 5 million but it still seems like an old Ranger move

This is also a likely sign that Stralman may have been looking for north of $4.5, or more years than we were willing to give.

I think if Stralman was willing to sign the same deal, we would have given it to him.

This is a good deal. Reasonable contract. Right handed shot. Still very good offensively. Gives us a righty on the point on the PP with McD. Now McD won't outscore the whole defense on his own. And if you're a stats only guy he has put up great corsis the last two years.

3rd pairing defender at this point. Not much left in the tank. Our D is not going to be as solid as this year. No idea where they're going to put him.

Disgusting. I'm almost ashamed to be a Ranger fan right now. A guy who gave his all for us for 3 years and helped us to an ECF and SCF we refuse to pay market value, but we overpay a mercenary who's got 1 foot in the grave


**** YOU SATHER

It could definitely be worse. Really just a stopgap until one of the young kids is ready.

I think it's a great move to bring some ******* offense from our back end.

Right handed shot. Very good deal. Stralman wanted a boat load of money. I'm happy with this.

The Rangers (and Larry Brooks) wanted Dan Boyle for years. This is workable and a caphit they can absorb.

The term is important I suppose. I'd rather Stralman for $4 mil for 4 years than Dan Boyle 2 years for $4.5--but if we're going Stralman $4.5 for 6--I'd rather Boyle and Stralman's likely going to make more than that if Pouliot can get $4 mil per.

As much as I really, really didn't want this to happen, I'm trying to think of some possible positive outcomes here.

D wise, he'll likely be with Staal, who is about as steady as they come. Maybe he'll run wild a bit with a solid partner like that.

On O, he wasn't great on the PP next year, but it's a different team, a different system. The PP setup is pretty nice with McD, MSL, Nash, Kreider, Step around. Maybe he can help them.

Again, I don't like this much at all, just trying to think of some decent possible outcomes.

I seriously hope Stralman gets well north of 5.5 million, otherwise I'll be pissed.
