    Sellers maybe but it’s not a sellers market. I say Rangers stand pat or make small prospect level moves.

    Gonna guess Smith 50% retained for a 5th rounder is our only move at the deadline. Would like to see them flip a D or Wing prospect for a C prospect but those deals aren’t the easiest to pull off.

    I think it is a sellers market if you're willing to eat cap. Strome @ 50% could have major value to a contender imo.

    People do not have cap space. Or if they do have cap space, they do not have the actual funds/cash flow. I've been repeating this for a while, the market is depressed.

    They’ll trade Gaut, DeAngelo and Smith.

    that will be it. Their big moves will happen in the summer

    Package DSP with him also at 50%, maybe they can get a 5th and 7th.

    As far as the questions about real money, I think retained salary trades would only be for the money not paid out yet, and if I am reading this correctly it looks like Smith already was paid 2.85M of the 4.35M. So 1.5M left to pay out, each team would have to give like 750K. I think.

    While he's been a lot better the last 6 weeks, it's really doubtful. Still nothing special defensively and he's not a top 2 C for anyone but Vegas afaict.

    Gorton is working on options depending on how the next two weeks go but it would be easy to assume that Smith is moved either way. However with retention IMO Gorton will be able to get more than 5th.

    With the logic of the Jackets GM in thinking Savard would get a #1 and an offensive center prospect, Smith should at least return a 2nd lol

    He was waived b/c he stinks now.

    He's got 2 more years at 4.5aav. He will clear waivers.

    why on earth....seriously....why on earth would we look at him?

    From his dumb contract to the fact of how many talented D we have coming up...again, for the love of God....why would we look at him?

    Lemieux, with some salary control and making < $2 million, got a 4th. How in the actual hell is Smith getting anything resembling that, even with half retained? Smith was a bust. He's with us as a 7D/13F because somehow he got a NTC from Gorton. He might not get a contract in this league next season.

    Yes he will.

    He was very good for us when he got traded here. He then signed his contract extension and proceeded to take that summer off and get fat as shit. He never recovered from that.

    He will however get a job someplace next season. Teams are always looking for cheap depth on D and he can provide that. He can also play either side.

    I honestly don't think he can play either side. I don't see any team seeing Smith as a better alternative to a younger player making league minimum and still demonstrating upside.

    I never said "better alternative", I said depth. He will be a 6/7 somewhere in the NHL next season, no doubt in my mind.

    I don't always celebrate my contract extensions, but when I do I attend 8 weddings in the same off-season. :cheers:

    Hockey fans always think their bottom defensemen are terrible, Brendan will probably kick around the league a few more years unless he gets fat again.

    You do realize Jack Johnson got a contract right? Anthony Bitetto? There will 100% be a 1 year, 750K-1.25M offer to Brendan Smith next year by some team, probably multiple.

    How is that one working out? Who will be Smith's Martin? I'd take Bitetto every day.
