Dreger is being a drama queen here. He's full of crap. We'll find out soon enough.
I guess when you have zero clue how markets and leverage work, you can just throw your hands up and blame team management. But in the real world, this was always going to come down to the wire.
One more sleep before we find out.
thank you Mr. Wizard. Keep guessing
I'm so perplexed by how quiet it is in hockeyland today. Bizarre.
it is chilling.
Kreider is holding up the rest of the market
How can you call Lundqvist a fail and Panarin a success after less than a year. That’s completely disregarding all Lindqvist did in the early years of his contract while assuming Panarin’s last two years will be better than Hanks

Heres to a 1st+top prospect+conditional 1st thanks Chris.
Not for nothing, but regardless of whether CK gets moved, he has truly handled this season as a pro. He maybe was a bit un-focused for the first few weeks but basically he has been awesome and by all accounts a great teammate. Bravo.
Agreed. A real professional. I think many forget that about the blood clot situation he had too and he came back early to help the team. No matter what happens tomorrow I hope people realize that he was a successful Ranger and a good guy
Goodbye Chris. I'm going to miss you a lot.
Kreider will regret this, IMO. Hope it works out for him but he’s in a fantastic spot to stay.
I hope it's not his agent that is playing hardball. If that's what this is he needs to speak up and tell agent to pound sand.
I am preparing myself for a BIG let down here.
So not only will we not keep a guy that clearly makes the team a playoff contender, the return might be extremely disappointing.
We'll see but if that is the case, this could be a major screw up from Davidson and Gorton.
If he’s gone, so are playoff hopes. I’m somewhat ashamed to admit that I felt like I fell down an elevator shaft when I read that a trade is all but certain.
Kreider seems like the highest IQ, non-typical jock type. Money is important, but he would be the guy to leave some on the table for happiness and comfort. Right?
I hope he doesn’t take this situation for granted. Then again, he doesn’t know anything but this organization...
I love 20, and he’s a quirky guy - no idea what he’s thinking...I thought he would take less to stay ... I have no clue now...
He’s a professional athlete that had a major health scare. Kreider deserves to go make as much as he can. This is his last big deal.
He’s going to be comfortable anywhere he goes
I do agree that this is a great spot for him on a team finally looking like it’s built to contend for a while. him theoretically taking a discount buys him a lot of rope here.
When he gets his big deal in Dallas or Colorado or Vegas, he’s going to be heavily scrutinized. He’ll do fine but it was a nice setup in NY. Less money but more of everything else.
Still going to miss him, if he goes. And will root for him in his new digs.
Me too. I kind of assumed this would end up in a win-win extension.
I'm not saying he should take less or shouldn't go get what he deserves and this isn't just limited to Chris Kreider - but, at what point does it just not matter anymore? I mean, 6 years 39.5M or 6 @ 42M... Those are huge numbers and you'd have to think other factors have to play a huge role in this - your kids, your significant other, where your family lives, what lifestyle you want, 4 seasons or summer all year, etc... This isn't just about the contract, I would hope. At least it wouldn't be for me. Panarin, Shattenkirk, took less because it was a fit for them. I guess we'll know in about 18 hours.
