Rangers Notes

Sam Weinman at Rangers Report:

Valiquette re-signed as well

A couple of other quick hits: Sather said he’s talked to Jaromir Jagr’s agent several times and they’re still interested in bringing him back. 

Sather also mentioned he called Sean Avery’s agent Pat Morris and Morris never called him back.

Perhaps the end to the NYR spending day.  Glen Sather is currently on a media conference call and Weinman will probably be adding more to that post shortly.

We’ll note a confirmation of the Stephen Valiquette re-signing when available.

Update 10:01pm ET: TSN notes the Valiquette re-signing. No info on terms at that link yet.

Michal Rozsival Close To Re-signing With Rangers

from the Blueshirts Blog,

Of all of the negotiating impasses between Glen Sather and 2007-08 Rangers who were approaching free agency, the one that made the least sense was the one with Michal Rozsival.

Finally, about six months longer than it should have taken, the Rangers and Rozsival are on the verge of signing a new contract.

Morning Brooks

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

It is believed that Sundin will ultimately choose between the Red Wings and Rangers, though he is not expected to make a commitment today….

Would Jagr be more amenable to returning on a one-year contract if Sundin stands to be his pivot? Would the Rangers be a more desirable destination for Sundin if he knows he will play with No. 68? Are they interlocking parts? If so, can Sather pull it off?

Sean Avery, given permission to speak with other teams late last week, is believed to have offers in his asking-price neighborhood of four years, $16M from at least the Maple Leafs, Blackhawks and Canucks, with other suitors expected to emerge.

more talk…

also from Brooks regarding Brendan Shanahan,

The Post has been told to expect the 39-year-old winger to go home again - home to New Jersey to complete the circle of his first-ballot worthy Hall of Fame career that commenced with the Devils New Jersey Devils in 1987-88.

The Jagr Solution

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Lightning hired Phoenix pro scout Greg Malone as their head of scouting. A few days later they acquired the rights to his son, Ryan Malone, whom they are poised to sign to a multi-year deal. What a coincidence.

The Rangers should hire Jagr’s father, also named Jaromir and the president of Kladno of the Czech League, as their director of Czech hockey operations. Why not? They should hire Mr. Jagr and then sign No. 68.

The Lightning opened the door. Let the NHL try to close it on Jagr and the Rangers. Just let them try.

The Value Of Avery

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Slap Shots has learned that Sather late last week granted permission to Avery’s agent, Pat Morris, to negotiate with any interested NHL team in advance of Tuesday’s official opening of the free-agent market.

Sources confirm that not only is that process under way, but that four or five teams have indicated their interest in signing Avery to a contract well in excess of the last deal proffered by Sather to No. 16. It’s believed the Rangers have come in at approximately $1M a year less than the four-year, $16M deal Avery is seeking and will be able to get.

UFA Talk For The NYC Area Teams

from Stan Fischler at Game On,

What matters to us is just how big a splash our locals will make. Or, to put it another way: will Glen Sather match his 2007 spree that landed Scott Gomez and Chris Drury in an astonishing one-day Double Dip?

D-Day is Tuesday and between now and then you’ll hear rumors galore of which about one-tenth of one percent will be on target.

No question, Sather, Lou Lamoriello and Garth Snow are entranced by Brian Campbell, but his asking price is likely too ridiculous for any of the trio.

One fascinating subject has to be lifetime Devil, Jay Pandolfo. Lou apparently is trying to lure JP back to Newark but one of Jay’s best buddies happens to be Scott Gomez
