No, it's a horrible signing. shakes head I can't believe there's even a poll. He's so bad and he's making almost a million dollars. Most jobs don't get you a million per year lol.

YES but, he had one year left in the Liiga, they could have left him there for the one year. I can only imagine it cost the Rangers some Coinage to end Kakko's contract.

Hughes isn't better currently. Dude needs to strengthen, and did you catch the number of permitted goals that the USNT club allowed ?? There team might have been slightly overrated if they can only go in one direction.

Hughes is good, but this kid is going to tear it up this year and for alot of years.

I would've picked him first.

I think it would be close to $300K if I remember correctly. I think the Rangers can stomach it.

I saw on the rangers insta post a dude in the comments was praising the gm, stating he could have easily gotten 9-10 MM, hes a steal for this price.

Sadly, he was not as they say, joking

but im a devils fan, and i really love this kids demeanor and attitude, he's going to be a stud. I'd still pick hughes, but this kid is going to be unreal

He got same AAV as Laine. I assume Hughes will now ask same as Matthews did.

It's a big money for a Liiga team. Their biggest stars get paid that kind of money. Only in KHL they pay in millions. Also good money in the Swiss league.

It’s definitely great for TPS. I’m just saying it won’t be a problem for the Rangers.

They're right. Kakko is horrible. He hasn't done anything in the NHL.
