    We need to find about $7M of Cap space. Many ways to get there, all have some sort of immediate and downstream impact. Expect the NYR to try every way to move players before possibly buying out Shatty on Wednesday.

    Devils acquire Gusev from Golden Knights, ink him to two-year deal – should be some interesting hockey this winter

    Been out of the loop a bit at the gym and at the Hockey ring, but the one tidbit I got last week from a one of my buddies is that the Rangers are looking to get the 4th line in order after the smokes clear. Reaves has been a name I have heard on more than one-occasion

    Boomer Esiason evidently said that the Rangers will buy out Shatty.

    NOW I’m scared.

      So they go with 22, eliminate Shatty, McKegg and Belesky, then sign DeAngelo and Lemieux … problem solved for this year. Smith stays on and swings from d to f and from f to d as needed — ld to rd, vice versa.

      The issue is the following year although guys like Namestnikov, Belesky and $2.5m of Girardi come off the book. Re: Kreider, unknown.

        No brainer….Shattenkirk sucked from his very first shift…awful transaction

        Actually, I do not believe that Shatty will be bought out. It is one of the least desirable options. That 2nd year is a $6M cap hit of dead space. No thanks.

        Shatty sticks, plays better, and gets traded. His actual salary to be paid is very low as most of it has been paid due to a front loaded contract. So Shatty will have trade value as time moves on.

        My prediction for CK is a 6 year deal.

          I just don’t see 22 improving….He just is what he is

        • Jul 30, 2019 at 1:00 pm

          I didn’t say he would be bought out, just suggested it’s all we need to do to get under the cap — and in the following year we free up about $3.5M just from Belesky and Girardi.

          I think Vegas and/ or Colorado are not done. Vegas picking up more picks, can be used in future deals….

        Jesse Granger in the Athletic said McPhee has been trying to unload Reaves and Holden

        That’s what we said last week Geno, lol.
