Rangers just punked all over the Islanders.
They will be the team to watch for next season.
Little higher than I wanted, but close enough.
I wanted Shattenkirk and I was wrong
I wanted Richards and I was wrong
I wanted Gomez/Drury and I was wrong.
I didn't want Panarin and hopefully I will be wrong.
**** it. I'll post it here too. Come on dooooown artemi! Were oh so happy to sign you to a cap crippling long term contract that far exceeds what you'll be worth. All while we film you in cringy vignettes where you talk in a monotone voice about how you always wanted to play here in DA GAWDEN. In the next 3 years, we anticipate you joining our hall of paid alongside the likes of
Special mention goes to Martin st louis who we paid a ton for in draft capital (while negotiating against ourselves) only to watch him go from an art ross candidate in Tampa to a (laughably immediate) post trade, 20+ game goal draught. Followed up by two lackluster seasons where he seemed to only show up in blowouts.
You see, we here at Da GAWDEN love taking on guys who will almost assuredly become bloated, disgustingly overpaid and under producing wastes of cap, so really you're timing couldnt be any better. Thank you for choosing the New York Rangers and DA GAWDEN for what were sure will be a shockingly quick spiral into old age and unproductiveness.
Now would you like our 12 year 225 million dollar contract with a NMC or just a limited NTC? 15 years you say? Oh. Oh I'm sorry, we here at DA GAWDEN get a little overzealous when trying to hand out cap crippling contracts. We forgot you can only get up to 7 years.
12 million per, you say?
Why that's money the likes of crosby or McDavid should make...a player who dominates games in every facet at a more important position, plays better D and scores more than you to boot...
So naturally we'll give you all that.
Welcome aboard, bread man!
(Fun aside I hope he becomes the rare player to make it to his mid 30s playing at an elite level)
Not confirmed yet, should be shortly though.
****ing stoked, lads.
The top-6 is #Eurofresh
It is confirmed.
I'll point out that right now the only long term contract the Rangers have is Skjei and now presumably Panarin. We can also assume that Trouba will get one.
It's a lot of money, but the Rangers are somewhat in a place to do that as again, no long term contracts at all at this point. When Kakko, Kravtsov, etc are up for a big raise, a whole lot of stuff will already be off the books.
I dunno how this will turn out but it's not quite as bad as it might look
Not a fan tbh.
Panarin - Mika - Kakko
Word is he would have signed for $10.6 if the NYR graphic design intern hadn’t screwed up the jersey mock-up last week.
A goddamn beautiful day. **** THE ISLANDERS!!!!!
The rebuild is pretty much over. Giving a soon to be 28 year old that much money brings a pressure to win ASAP.
The Iron Curtain
The power play better be LETHAL
LOVE IT. Let's go!
Just got this feeling we half assed it.
suddenly we can say this ?
wow talk about talent ????
bye bye CK
Any word on where CK is headed. I’ll admit I’m a bit heartbroken to see him go. Maybe we can still get a good first rounder and decent prospect in return. Add Andersson for good luck. That would be phenomenal asset management
Considering Jeff Skinner just got 9 million as an inferior player with an absurd injury history, this looks like a ****ing heist.
