    “The Rangers aren’t interested in Kovalchuk”

    *a bunch of insiders report the Rangers are gonna sign him, and clearly interested*

    “Well, they’re the only one interested, take it or leave it, one year”

    RB man lol

    Is give kovalchuk 1 yr at an absurd dollar figure just to stay away from the 2nd yr. 2 years from now is an ungodly amazing free agent class.

    I tend to agree, not so much that I am worried about next years UFA class, more so that signing a multi year plus 35 contract has many disadvantages.

    As with anything, the devil is in the details - in this case term and dollars.

    I’ve never been one to outright dismiss most concepts without knowing the details. Give me some details, and I’ll know if we have a starting point from which to work.

    It will be 1-4 years. Between $1.5 and $9 million annually.

    I’m cool with 2.3 years at $2.5k per shift.

    A one year deal would obviously be great, considering if NYR are out of contention near the deadline he has potential value as a rental.

    I can't imagine he will sign a deal without a full NMC

    He's implying you dismissed Bobby Mac as a source when the report didn't agree with you but are using him now when it does. I have no clue if he has a leg to stand on and idc but that's what he's implying

    You’re another one. The Rangers are interested in Kovalchuk to a point. They wound prefer one year. If they are the only team interested, why offer more than one year? I would love to negotiate against you.

    Dreger made those comments about Kovalchuk. Maybe East Coast Bias thinks McKenzie and Dreger are the same person.

    RangerBoy: the Rangers will never sign Kevin Shattenkirk, he doesn’t fit with Gorton’s plan

    Also RangerBoy: the Rangers got Shattenkirk exactly on the terms THEY wanted. All apart of Gorton’s plan

    True. He turns 27 after the 2019-20 season starts, which means he will be UFA in the summer of 2020, correct?

    Are the Rangers the only team in the world that will sign him?

    He could re-sign with his current club. Maybe were bidding against them.

    I'll sit and wait for the condescending response.
