    He's from NJ so maybe playing on Broadway has been his lifelong dream?

    I'm a little down on the trade. Not happy to lose Stepan's production even though they needed D help. No clue about the draft either. Is this a good year where we can get league ready talent at 7?

    DeAngelo grew up a Flyers fan.

    Count me in as someone who isn't to thrilled with this trade. I think Stepan needed to go, I just don't think they got enough in return.

    This was a $26 Million dump with adding defensive potential and a high pick. Gotta find that next 1C

    I used to be balls deep in these drafts but its been a while since I've had the time to watch games outside of the Rangers.

    I think they probably look for his future replacement with the pick that they got today, better start reading up on who is available!

    Looks like we're close to wrapping up a 4-year, $4.35MM per deal with Smith.

    A little more AAV than I wanted but he's good and it's not too long a contract so I'm fine with it. I just worry in their heads it was a choice between Smith and Shattenkirk. If Buffalo or NJ offer him 7x7.5 then no but if there's some wiggle room with him to come here, say 6x6.75, and this stops them from doing that it will be frustrating.

    It'll be frustrating to see him go to NJ but I abhor 6 year deals. They have a good amount of cap space now that Stepan is gone, and Shattenkirk would be a great fit, plus he's from NY originally so I'm sure he'd love to play here, but anything in dollars or years that starts higher than 6 is a no go.

    Weekes says Shatty to Rangers for 4 yrs @ $6.9m, the internet (including some major outlets) takes it and runs with it, then Weekes backtracks. Ugh.

    Seems to be done, and for less that that earlier report - 4 years, $26.6MM.

    It's amazing to see a player leave all that money on the table to follow his heart.

    Defense is set now. If Gorton can work some magic and make another Brass/Zib trade for a #2C using Nash, on paper it'd be the best team we've have in a long time.

    i never ask a player to do this. they have every right to make as much as they can, while they can.

    i'm also a believe that you don't need 100s of millions to be happy in life. make your decisions for the reasons that matter to you. shatty will make plenty of money but it's lear it was not his primary focus.

    Really happy with the signing. I was expecting 6+ years at least. He surely had those kinds of offers on the table but wanted to play for his childhood team. Gotta love that.

    Has Klein officially retired yet?

    Rangers now have the best D in the Metro.

    Still not in love with the return for Stepan but we'll see what happens the rest of this month.

    we got the 1st round pick from it and Anderson is lighting it up in rookie camp. He wants to make the team but I'm pretty sure AV will never let that happen

    I can't believe Tampa gave Girardi 2/$6M deal. Dude is making out like a bandit. He's making $8,250,000 this year.

    Surprised Klein actually retired.

    Can he take Staal with him?
