I said it was a disgusting move at the time of the signing, and I was massacred by people on this site who told me Blair Betts didn't matter because he's not a Ranger anymore, it was partly Betts's own fault, it's fine if Brashear does this kind of stuff for us, etc.

Hopefully you were not one of the people who massacred me...

Phily's PK is #20 in the NHL even with Betts. The star PKer on the Rangers is the guy between the pipes.

A. Gross reports that Brashear's salary won't count against the Cap

Andrew Gross over at Ranger Rants reports that Brashear's salary won't count against the salary cap for the first year. The over-35 doesn't count for the first season only subsequent seasons. An over-35 is treated like any other contract for the first season unless they have a no move claus which Brashear does not. Hopefully this means Brashear will be sent down. Maybe the hockey gods are giving us a bit of a break.

And thanks to Brashear for opening his mouth, once again. Bec if it weren't for him going to the media and complaining they might have just let him continue sitting in the press box for $1.4, practicing and traveling w the Rangers, and playing a disappointing game every now and then.

So now that he has been put on waivers and we know that his salary won't count against the cap for this season, why is he still with the team? What is the hold-up? He isn't playing tonight. I don't understand the logic behind paying for his trip. Maybe someone can explain what it takes for someone to clear waivers and the time frame they have to report to Hartford.

So now that he has cleared waivers, does that mean that he has 24 hours to report to Hartford?

yep, they are morons if they dont send him down, save the cash then see what happens at the deadline . If they have cap space throw him on re-entry and take the 700 K hit. Its going to have to happen next yr anyways

Cheechoo is on waivers too. He has 3 million next yr but even for Brash that's not smart

The Rangers have to assign him there first.

Just want to assign the blame where it should be from the get-go if he doesnt do the smart thing and assign and terminate if Brash doesnt report.

I still don't think Brash will mutually terminate the contract. He passed through waivers. Clearly no team wants him for 1.4M. He's guaranteed 1.4M next season. Why would he terminate this contract and hope to sign a new, cheaper contract as a UFA? It'd be for less money and he has no guarantee that any teams will even make him an offer. Makes no sense from his POV.

For me 56 is impressive as hell whether you play with Joe T or not...

If you watch the YouTube compilation of his 56 goal season, he scored some absolute beauties.... Amazing how he has fallen off... Cheechoo has had seasons of scoring:

28
37
23

goals... Amazing how he can barely muster 15 goals a season or even stay in the NHL....

But this is Brashear we are talking about.

Hes upset because he thinks the dont "Believe in" him.

If thats the case what does sending him to the minors show? He'll have to wait till camp next year to make the team, right? I think with that said hes going to want to be on another NHL team for a shot to win the cup, hes not getting any younger. The only way he does that is if he terminates, becomes UFA and signs a dirt cheap contract as a depth/goon move. But there isnt a ton of fighting in the playoffs anyway, and if any team has scouted him theyll know its a total waste of a roster spot. So he might only terminate if he knows theres interest from another club.

Please correct me if im wrong on this.

Probably because he doesn't want to spend the remainder of this season and all of next season riding buses and playing in front of a few thousand people in AHL arenas? I don't know what kind of situation he is in financially but maybe he doesn't care about the $1.4 mil for next year similar to how Naslund had no problem calling it quits when he would have earned an additional couple million had he played the last year of his contract.

I'm not sure why anyone even cares about the added cap space this year. It's not like Sather is going to be able to bring someone that can make an impact in with Brashear's cap hit. Next year is what's important, so we're screwed.

As far as him terminating the contract, it's possible, however unlikely, that he'd be willing to accept less money if he can dictate his destination.

And those few thousand AHL fans don't want to spend money to watch this bum take up a roster spot in Hartford either

Can't compare Naslund and Brashear though. Naslund has made exponentially more money than Brashear in his career

Yeah but with X amount of salary comes a certain lifestyle directly proportionate to your income.... If you make $4 mil a season you're going to spend accordingly and live in a multi-million dollar home, etc etc... If you make 4th line enforcer money, you probably live more modestly so a million dollars may go a long way.... Brashear has also been in the league for 17 seasons.... I'd imagine he would have a nice little nest egg going for himself...

Staal & Girardi need new contracts....Cap space is never a bad thing to have....
