When Does The Frenzy Start

Recommended Posts

ESPN reporting Gomez signed 7yrs with Rags

I thank Charles Wang for this.

Thank him for what? Contract length.

Yep. I doubt we'd be seeing all these insane contract lengths if DiPietro hadn't gotten the 15-year one.

What will be real interesting is a couple seasons from now when all these teams still suck and they try and dump salary, but can't due to there still being 4-5yrs left on some ones deal.

Granted, some of those are staying with their teams, but after this Free Agency spending, I hate to see who gets how much.

I guess this means Shanny and Nylander are no longer Rangers. No way they can afford them now.

Wow did the Rangers just get damn good.

But one question: Are these GMs out of their freakin mind.

I'm sorry, but wasn't the cap suppose to stop this from happening? Jagr, Drury, Gomez. Dunno if Nylander or Shanahan will be able to stick around after that.

And they just picked up that nasty looking Russian D-man in the draft.

Double ****

It doesn't keep teams from overspending, which is what NY is doing. NY is getting to the same spot Tampa is in, three great players taking up too much of their cap so they can't afford anyone else.

Looks like the Rangers are back to being their old selves.
Yeah, paying "superstar" money to "above average" talent -- Drury is just not "that" special...even coming off an amazing 69 point season. :blink:

True, but if I remember correctly, Tampa Bay's done well doing that. Consistently making the playoffs based on 3 key players.
