The New York Rangers Could Buy Out Kevin Shattenkirk

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

Regarding the Rangers, the cap situation and what I believe to be an impending Kevin Shattenkirk buyout:

1. This is an imperfect solution to the problem that was created when contracts to Shattenkirk, Marc Staal and Brendan Smith aged poorly and the team leaped into the deep end of the free agent pool this summer. No one is suggesting otherwise.

But buying out No. 22, who came to New York with the best of intentions and who has conducted himself with nothing but class from the moment he slipped into the Blueshirt two years ago, is the least painful way to go about fixing the mess, even with the massive $6,083,333 in 2020-21 dead space that would generate.
