Come on now. We debated his contract the day it happened and we’re in the same place today.

How about Shattenkirk being a healthy scratch already You want to talk about horrendous contracts???
- Vukota


Never made sense to me Shattenkirk picking the Rangers over the Devils even if he had Ranger PJ's. Devils are probably happy they lost out.

If he gets us Hughes it will be the best contract ever, along with Staals

There’s always the chance that somebody is looking for an overpriced bad player with term. Don’t rule that out.

Yup but He was fired this off season.

Of course not, but we knew last year the team was going to rebuild, so whatever helps with Hughes is ok in my book. Plus, its not my (frank)ing money

It would be nice to utilize the $2M they gained from Kovar leaving, not sure what the play would be. Maybe something in a few months if someone becomes available. I'm not rehashing my thoughts on the cap, but really the only position that I see that is "upgradeable" would be Pruneshackle. You could certainly make an argument in favor of the 4C spot being upgraded, but I'm not sure they'll put Fippula and his $2M cap hit in the pressbox.

I don't think you can really spend that $2M on defense when you have a perfectly capable upgrade in BPT that's dirt cheap and waiver-exempt.

I wouldn't be upset if they took the space they gained and used it at all but, as of today, I think they should just keep the space. Always a shot they can take on a bad contract to gain some assets and having the cap space to do that is key.

You guys had Tavares and now Barzal. You can't complain about picks.

He does make so little but his small contract with every other small contract we have with term equals something which is my point. No, it’s most likely not a concern this season but when you factor in the other contracts we have to me it potentially becomes a concern.
Let’s say hypothetically we’re competitive this season and have an opportunity to get a very good player or two in July after most likely signing Lee, who knows maybe Eberle also? It potentially becomes a problem then and when you add term to a contract it could cause issues beyond this season. I’m calling the earth round I know it’s common sense but spending money especially with term just because we have space to me is not the best plan for multiple reasons. Not sure how this is even debatable?

We got the next Ovi coming up. Plus K'Andre is going to toss Wahlstrom into the cheap seats. You know he was a linebacker, right?

I swear if the Rangers got the 1st overall and picked someone other than Hughes, it would be mayhem.
