According to Andy Strickland of HockeyBuzz - (yeah, I’m about to quote that site):
The Rangers and Nik Antropov are having some preliminary discussions as they would like to re-sign the 29 yr old sniper, but in reality there is very little the Rangers can do unless they move some bodies.
I’m told Antropov is seeking a 4-5 yr. deal worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $4-5 million per season.
Sources inform me that Antropov has cut ties with agent Don Meehan.

However, if he is really looking for a 4-5 year deal at the pirce ($4-5 million per season), I can’t see him coming returning next season. What are your thoughts on that?
The same blog also points us to a story by Larry Brooks of The New York Post that says that enforcer Colton Orr will most likely not be returning to Broadway next season:
One very pissed off Rangers fan reporting that according to Larry Brooks of the NY Post today:
The Rangers, by the way, have made no effort to re-sign Colton Orr, who will have no trouble at all scoring a multi-year deal within hours of the opening of the market. We’re told Florida is keenly interested in the heavyweight.
What do you folks think of that?
