4 years from now, everyone will be like, why didn't it work...what went wrong..

I wonder who gets a contract offer or traded away now, maybe Sauer, maybe Dubi, maybe Boyle, maybe AA...but who gives a ****...we got our overpaid "superstar".

I wonder how much drive he will have when he is 35 and has collected 40 million from us...maybe he can open up a pizza shop or a fancy resturant...welcome to NYC.

Prove me wrong.
Hey its a jealous Leaf Fan. Hey buddy, 6.5 million a year for a guy like this is not something i call overpayed. I was worried when i heard that many teams were involved and honestly started thinking the cap hit would go over 8. But hearing this is good news. Ive seen him play he has skill, now i havent watched him enough to say i love him but at 6.5 even if he is not who we think, it would def not be impossible to move him in a couple years. Dont worry Sauer is not going anywhere, nor is Dubi or AA and prob not Boyle unless he wants too much money.

FORWARDS
Brandon Dubinsky ($4.000m) / Brad Richards ($6.500m) / Marian Gaborik ($7.500m)
Wojtek Wolski ($3.800m) / Derek Stepan ($0.875m) / Ruslan Fedotenko ($1.400m)
Sean Avery ($1.937m) / Artem Anisimov ($1.500m) / Mats Zuccarello-Aasen ($1.750m)
Brandon Prust ($0.800m) / Michael Rupp ($1.500m) / Ryan Callahan ($4.000m)
/ Brian Boyle ($1.500m)

DEFENSEMEN
Marc Staal ($3.975m) / Daniel Girardi ($3.325m)
Ryan McDonagh ($1.300m) / Michael Del Zotto ($1.087m)
Tim Erixon ($1.750m) / Mike Sauer ($1.000m)

GOALTENDERS
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m) / Martin Biron ($0.875m)

BUYOUTS: Chris Drury ($3.716m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $60,966,667; BONUSES: $2,337,500
CAP SPACE (21-man roster): $3,333,333





Unless we are cutting bait with Avery or Wolski (or MZA doesn't make the team), Christensen has no place.
He could be kept as a spare if one of the kids isn't ready. Teams will normally carry 14 forwards and we should have enough cap space to do so.

And yeah EC is now an extra forward on this team at best.

We have Richards-Stepan-Anisimov-Boyle down the middle, which, barring a major setback to any of them is a very nice crew.

Just a great signing with a low enough cap hit. Richards is young enough where he probably has 5-6 great years left.

This team really has no weaknesses.

Slats has built this team to be able to compete for a very long time.

Now that the Rangers have given out one of these "cap circumventing" contracts expect the league to pull the rug out from everybody come Tuesday morning.

I think it will be closer to 2 mil after the RFAs sign, but yeah, we could save another 3.3 by buying out Wolski. We could add someone for 4 mil and still have plenty of space for injury callups.

I'd rather not go that route though. Keep Wolski and see what he can do alongside Richards and Gaborik. Let's focus on getting our RFAs signed and go into the season with this team. We can always add pieces at the trade deadline.

The Bruins' team structure and philosophy is not that different than the NYR. We're a piece or two and within a couple of years away of becoming serious Cup contenders. So, yeah, celebrate this signing and cheers to Slats for not overspending.
That simple huh? Guess we could win a cup every year with that system and the Ranger's money, right?

Yes, this contract is a risk BUT we filled our biggest need by getting the best free agent available and it only cost us Dolan Dollar$

If we missed out on Richards, then what? We would have had to move valuable assets to acquire a #1 C.

Sure, he could become the next Drury or Gomez but you have to take some risks in this league if you want to win.

I didn't want Richards a few months ago, but now I'm pumped about having a REAL 1st line. We have our 2nd line, our 3rd line, our 4th line. I just pray our young forwards and D stays consistent in developing next year.

We can use a LW. I don't think it's necessarily needed, though.

Looking forward to seeing Richards and Gaborik on a rush.

I am so pleased and happy right now. 6.5? Sather showing restraint? Sather LEARNING from his past mistakes? Maybe we don't need to fire him afterall....hopefully this continues.

Okay, so now we have Richards. We are a legitimate playoff team, but are we a stanley cup contender? Not quite....close but not quite.

The question I am posing is that if we were able to trade for Yandle, would we be stanley cup contenders? We'd have to give something up of value, it may have to be one of stepan or anisimov, but Yandle is a legitimate #1 Dman and quite the PMD as well.

Just food for thought.

Sather is so weird

Great at trades

Terrible at signing mid tier guys

Better at signing top tier guys
