Does Sather pick him up? I say yes, he can help this team as the 2ed line centre and help on the PK, but who would he bump?? I say claim him and trade Poti and Nieminen to make room. Sather had him before and almost signed him.
But on the downside, he has another three years after this season left on a contract that pays him, $2.47 million, $2.47 million and $2.66 million, which may be a financial albatross many teams are not prepared to assume
Why waste the cap room and tie up a spot at center for another 3 seasons?Marchant is a 32 year old third line center.You can't be serious
Sather didn't sign Marchant because he wanted a six year deal at over $3 million per.Things have changed since then.Dominic Moore and Blair Betts are doing the same job if not a better job than Marchant for a fraction of $2.47 million per
No reason in hades to pick the guy up....Marchant has slipped and the amount of salary and length on his contract is hideous..Besides, we already have what Todd Marchant used to be in Dominic Moore.....And the only thing Marchant has over Rucchin is speed, not enough to balance all the other negatives..
bad idea. i´m pretty sure he has a no-trade-clause in his way too big contract. we would be stuck with him.plus, he doesn´t have anything we need right now and would take playing time from the young guys. remeber, we are in a REBUILDING YEAR...we can still acquire someone like him at the deadline if we are still in the playoff race. remember, it´s only been 20 games or so.
ya know it's funny, the only guy I would like to have on the rangers in this trade is Tyler Wright. He'd fit right into the current line up and would be no big deal to lose if we had to place him on waivers or whatever when Immonen or other kids were ready to step in. Wright's a hard working player and is good influence on young players. Excellent role player in my opinion. If this team makes the playoffs he's the kind of guy I'd like to see added at the deadline.
What exactly does Marchant bring to the table that makes him worth another $2.5 mill per season for 3 more years?? He's a 33 YO 3rd line center thats never scored more than 20 goals in a season. Doesn't seem like the best way to spend $7.5 million over the next 3 seasons now does it?
