Still have the potential to be a prettttty sneaky squad (albeit in a very tough division).
*Should* see guys like Miller, Kakko, Laffy (With a solid offseason I feel like he's going to breakout...jumped straight to the NHL after a covid lockdown from March-Dec, didn't play in the WJC, etc.), and Chytil take a solid step forward this year. Not a Rags fan, and definitely get a kick out of the "SO AND SO IS THE GREATEST PROSPECT EVER!" thing that was going on during the constant Eichel trades on here, but man, I definitely think they're a potential threat moving forward.</div></div>
you miss the point entirely. All those expiring deals that need to be re-signed are next years cap problem. The Rangers have ludicrous space this season and to do nothing with it, to not weaponize it all and just shrug and play out the year would be a massive missed opportunity on an expiring asset, in this case short term cap space.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Skyraider112</b></div><div>Seeing as Adams declined Krebs, Hague, Smith, and a 1st for Eichel with some amount of retention then there is no way he will settle for less. It will be a top prospect, 1-2 roster players, at least one 1st and probably another pick or prospect</div></div>
But thats the point of this whole thing that seems to be soaring over your heads. Adams passed on offers that dont exist anymore. Vegas went out and signed people and acquired Dadonov. They cant just magic 10m in cap space between now and opening night, unless buffalo takes a ton of salary back to make it work. Which means the package you are quoting surely doesnt exist as an option anymore, and is lowered. Adams overplayed his hand, teams made other adjustments and now instead of NYR, LAK, VGK and others all bidding on Eichel, its just the NYR left. So why would Drury raise his offer? Show me one point of leverage Adams has left? Did you read the Vogl article in the Athletic? Was good stuff.
