    I’m 100% sure the Rangers leaked that to Carp deliberately. The dude has almost zero inside info, yet comes out with something that makes the Rangers not the bad guy when they trade Kreider tomorrow.

    What one side feels is “substantial” might be borderline insulting to the other.

    I think when you have been with one organization your whole career and you genuinely love it there then whatever the offer is when you are told "this is our final offer" you are going to sleep on it regardless. Even if you knew as soon as you saw it that you should turn it down.

    to be fair, the national pundits repeat obvious things feigning they know something

    I'm still half expecting a trade tomorrow that has nothing to do with either Kreider or Fast, but I could be wrong.

    I suppose "packages" of players attached to either deal could happen as well.

    Sending Buchnevich along with Kreider would cripple us at the wing position, so I'm not advocating it, but I see the logic there.

    More just making fun of Larry's misspelling, not that I should, my writing/grammar is not good.

    I'm better at spotting what will become bad contracts.

    @BBKers suggested he might have more interest than we think.

    Switching gears, hard to believe the Rangers would trade Hank before he's been given some kind of going away party. I was at the Garden for the Sharks game and there wasn't any inkling in the production that this could be Hank's last night in a Rangers jersey.

    it may well be this whole thing is hinging on henrik

    the money to resign kreider is there if hank is moved.

    CK gets his 6/7.5 deal and this team retains a very important piece.

    henrik gets his chance to chase a cup. sadly, and im a huge hank fanboy, i think its too late. both shesty and georgie, at this point, are better than hank is.

    maybe he can catch fire and make a run. i just think his ability to steal games or a series, isnt there anymore.

    Honestly, if they're going to not play Hank, I'd love to see him get traded. Don't care about the return, but the guy should be playing somewhere. Assuming of course that Hank is agreeable to it.

    Not if they trade Skjei to free up the money IMO. Trade from a place of strength and all that jazz. Would depend on Brady's return though of course.

    Don't see it happening so it's all hypothetical, but I wouldn't hate it. Just gives CK all the leverage.

    Colorado is not trading for Lundqvist, that's insanity. They just gave Francouz a 2 year extension and he has 16 wins with a
    2.27 GAA and .927 SV%... what more could you possibly ask for from a backup?!?!?!?

    Edit of course if Grubauer is out for the year that does change things

    On the flip side, he’s had the best season of his career with all eyes on him in his walk year, the first and only shot at a massive payoff that he’s worked his entire career towards.

    After he retires he’ll hopefully have 50 more years to look back and enjoy it all and live off that final contract.

    An extra 5-10 million is hard to walk away from if you really think about the future. These are young guys with a long way to go and being the intelligent man he is I’m sure he realizes you can’t make this type of decision lightly and base it on how well a single year or single chapter of your life has gone.

    I tend to agree with this. It’s not a coincidence that a lot of non-Ranger fans believe most of the numbers being thrown out for Kreider are absurd

    That said I am starting to lean towards them getting this done. Rangers have kinda shown their hand a little, I wouldn’t be shocked to see them cave on the AAV and give him 7x6 with full NMC

    Agreed

    I wouldn’t be happy if that’s what happens

    My prediction is this board is going to implode whether he gets traded or not.

    You can't let Kreider negotiate up to the deadline. As the article says, gotta move Kreider by giving other teams the ability to put the deal together.

    And you'd like to have time to move some other guys as well.

    Any pure UFA contract that is expensive, long term, and has restrictive clauses is almost always bad. Market rate for that is almost never worth it. Teams who do so should be desperate to do so, which is how Skinner gets 9Mx8

    Also what happens with Hank should have no impact on their decision with Kreider imo

    No movement clauses should be given to ONLY star players. Krieder is not one of them.

    No.

    They will deal him and promise to talk in the offseason if they want to revisit a contract.

    I think the Rangers have a pretty good idea of whats on the table from other teams.

    If they don't, the entire front office should be thrown off of the chase bridge.
