Okay.

So if Klein plays in another league this year can the Rangers be penalized?

Theoretically that might be enough to at least trigger an investigation, but my reading of the CBA (from memory anyway) indicates that it would have to reveal something like an under the table payment to Klein or close family member, friend, etc. for there to be any cap circumvention penalty.  There's nothing wrong with retiring from the NHL to play in another league so your cap hit goes away, subject to recapture penalties having a over-35 deal, and the like. 

Still, I would put it at 99.9999 percent that there's no investigation.  The Rangers don't need the extra cap space they're getting to do anything they need to do for this year.  I imagine an investigation like that is very  intrusive, and would only be triggered if there's some showing of probable cause.

Based on how everyone in hockey told us the lead up to the expansion draft was going to be one of the craziest offseason events we've ever witnessed, sure it's disappointing that we're not at least si

Two days ago, this was a pathetic draft class that we wanted no part of other than Shattenkirk. Now, the sky is falling because we lost out on him since he's going to realize his 15 year old wet dream

So... Detroit...

Should devil's go after Markov to qb pp?

 

IMO, I still think he's got skills to offer.  One year only however, unless he's willing to get traded if we're not playoff bound.

Yes absolutely need to go after Markov. Vanek as well. These are pieces that can help for 17-18, and are moveable assets at the deadline if we fall out of it again.

Problem with Markov is that he wants a two year deal, which makes trading him this year a little tough.

Soooo.....has anyone given much thought to PTOs?  I have one for a James Wisniewski here and I would put money on Shero giving a hard PTO look at Simon Depres. 

Haven't followed either, but I know that both have been cycled through the Ducks d-corps.  Both have had injury issues too apparently.  

What do you think?

I'm pretty sure Despres isn't gonna play again. He suffered several serious concussions. On another note, how was Anaheim able to buy him out if he was on LTIR?

If it's a front-loaded two year deal, we can also trade him with 50% salary retained. He'd fetch a nice pick or two at the deadline, no doubt about that.

EK(2.3% accurate) thinks Julienne Hough might want to sign here or NYI. With the loss of JJ's model wife I'd take her to fill the gap we have at very attractive blonde team wife. Since he says it's a possibility, she'll prob sign with LA.

I've never been an Andrei Markov fan, his feet are starting to catch up with him and he's slowing down a lot, still has some good awareness and ability in the offensive zone but to my eye he's gonna come crashing down soon. Would be very disappointed if we ponied up a 2 year deal with a 6M AAV, it would be an awful move IMO

 For those of us who don't pay attention to who's dating who in the hockey world, this is Brooks Laich's fiancé.

Yeah he played all of last season in the AHL and he's a center - I don't see it happening, sorry.  Keep looking for another hot blonde so we can sign her husband. :lol:

Auvitu has signed with the Oilers. 

Unless Shero really has an unshakable plan on D, I don't get why we didn't have a spot for him. I can't pretend to be the smartest hockey fan, but I never got what Hynes/Shero saw out of him last year to warrant being put in the minors and not called up. Maybe he deserved a couple stints in the AHL here and there, maybe he's not meant to be an NHL regular, but I thought he was a good option to have on our team to use. Good speed, good skating, some lapses on D but great offensive instincts; not sure why we passed on him.

From what I have read, he was often scratched in the AHL as well.  I think he just wasn't adjusting well and he was a bit of a mess in his own zone.

Damn, now that I have his game-issued McMullen night jersey (it actually wasn't that insanely more than a standard lettered authentic), I was kind of hoping that he might stick around and possibly figure some things out, though it didn't seem likely.  Oh well...I'm guessing he'll one of those guys who maybe eventually plays about 100 or so NHL games for 4-5 teams, with a lot of AHL games, depending on how long he chooses to play over here (kind of like a Salmela-type).  Not like he's a kid...he'll be 28 on 7/27.

Well that sucks. Not like I had super high hopes for him but I hoped he'd factor in somehow...at some point. Shero has to have something on the horizon regarding a D. Be it a trade or a signing. We really just can't let anybody up and walk right now with the situation we're in. Not even Auvitu

That really tells you how they feel about Autivu.  If Shero was indeed that down on him, I can't get worked up about him not keeping Auvitu just because.

Dalton Prout is here too...don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting much from him, and the current D-corp is a bit scary, but the Devils have Greene/Mueller/Severson/Santini/Killjoy/Prout/Moore.  Not saying that Shero won't eventually improve on this lot, but it might not happen until in-season.
