very excited about this kid. He said all the right things so far this off season and might be more ready for a top 6 role than most people think.

Looks like he made $1.5MM last year, do we think 2 years @ +/- $2MM?

Looks like he mad $750k last season, cap hit @ $850k w/ bonuses, so about $900k? Maybe closer to $935k if they used his $850k # to base the increase on?

Ah, I read it as Rabgers sign Briere. My heart dropped then realized he wasn't a FA and was happy again.

that imo would be too much for someone who will likely center the 4th line. for that money we could sign betts easily!

nhlnumbers says 750k salary, 0.835 cap hit in 08/09. i think that sounds much more realistic and should be about what he will get now.

I think he had to be qualified at 110% of what he made last year, and probably wouldn't be signing for less.

yes, but since his last contract (i guess an ELC) probably included bonuses, his cap number was higher than his actual salary. so something like 850k as new salary and cap hit seem ok to me.

I don't know much about him but is that entirely realistic? plus if he was wouldn't he be a low end borderline top 6 guy which is what we already have a surplus of?

He's a better player than his stats would indicate and he was always thought of as a long-term project. LA's attempt to move him to the blue line slowed his offensive progression IMO, but his defensive awareness improved considerably.

I believe he was projected to be a dominant 2nd line center in his draft year, but I don't think he'll reach that level. However, a solid 3rd line guy who gets a lot of PP time in front of the net isn't out of the question at all.

Having a surplus of good players is never a bad thing.

I have followed his career a fair bit. He has all the tools to be a top 6 powerforward. One scout I have spoken to said something along the lines of, "If this kid takes his opportunity with New York seriously, we are talking about a solid 25-25 guy for the Rangers."

It will be exciting to see what kind of shape he comes into camp with and whether or not that is in accord to the statements that he has been preaching this past week.

I wonder if the Rangers tell these guys, after signing them, "Ok Tortorella is going to make you skate like crazy in training camp and you should probably train as hard as possible so you can handle it"

adam hall was the guy brought in for lower 6, with upper 6, potential, supposed to be a big body, play physical, get in the corners, maybe stand in front of the net on the power play, was young and perhaps still developing/hadn't been developed properly... Wound up being soft, slow, inconsistent, invisible and traded - I think its a miscue to expect more from Brian Boyle than the exact role he was brought in to fill - 4th line center hoping to bring a little more offense than Betts did. To consider he might break top 6 would be to set yourself up for Adam hall disappointment

If I remember correctly from one of those "Inside the Rangers" segments, each player if given a very thorough ("Using the whole fist there, Doc?") exam by the training and medical staff. After that initial evaluation, each player receives a customized workout, and in some case nutritional, schedule that SHOULD allow them to hit camp in peak shape.

I never saw Adam Hall as having top-six potential. Maybe that's just me though.
