AV said he wants to have 13 fwds, 8 D, 2 goalies on opening night, but if the break camp with 13 F, 7 D, and 2 G they can get stepan signed for $3.35 M and be under the cap with callahan and hagelin not having to go on LTIR.
Roster : Nash-richards-kreider, pouliot-brassard-zucc, kristo-stepan-lindberg, boyle-moore-dorsett, callahan, hagelin, powe
McD-Girardi, staal-del zotto, moore-stralman falk
after callahan and hags are ready kristo gets demoted and the rangers call up an 8th D if they so choose. Id be surprised to see stepan with no contract before season because if he misses one game, that's about $40,000 he'll never get back just to hold out for a contract that would have been on the table for weeks.

Yes that seems likely to happen. Im not worried about signing our RFAs, I still think zucc and hagelin both are still signed after mac and step

The 6.55 cap space number doesn't include the potential cap space savings from asham and powe but it also doesnt include the 1.2 cap hit for JT miller who the rangers will probably have on the roster in the fall.
I think for their cap hits to come off they have to be assigned to the minors. If they clear waivers unclaimed they would still be on nhl roster until they are officially assigned to minors. Once they clear waivers they still belong to rangers unless they buy them out

I could be wrong but capgeek has rangers 11.2 under the cap and I dont think that includes asham and powe being waived. Even if unclaimed, rangers can assign both to the AHL and save 1.8 in cape space. Putting them 13 under cap without any trades (although I feel a trade might be coming)
.tBest case scenario for richards is what? 50 points or so? Is one season of that (although unlikely he will actually be that good) worth rolling the dice on essentially killing this core group of players chance at winning anything? His current cap hit through 2020 will handicap the team and his 17m cap hit later in the contract if he retires would be a disaster. I like BR and wish this wasnt the case. I hope he does bounce back, but unfortunately that should happen somewhere else. It's not worth the risk if he gets hurt. It only takes one freak play for it to happen

Fwiw i think the word on stralman is separated shoulder and a facial fracture, not a concussion.

Nevermind hank and the defense, they'll be fine. Averaging 3.6 goals per game over last 5, they keep that up (or close to it) they can beat anyone in 7 game series.
