So Jack Hughes, who has arguably achieved even less than Lafreniere, signs an 8 year extension at $8M per year. He's shown flashes of what he can do, but statistically he sits near or at the bottom of #1 overall picks in the last 20 years. The signing though does have an impact on the Rangers, in that they have both Kakko (2022) and Lafreniere (2023) coming up for their first contract extensions, and it also comes after the Rangers extended Zibanejad, Fox and Shesterkin over the Summer.

Going to be hard fitting all these contracts in...

Strome is the only player making over $4M without an NTC/NMC and he is a UFA next year... But Fox and Zib will eat about $12M more cap next year...$1.5M from Henk comes off next year but still have about $3.4M yied up in Girardi, D'Angelo and Shatty in dead cap..

It means the rangers are screwed. It also means we as fans continue to get screwed by the absurd salary cap number. The cap was $69 million in 2014-2015 and The devils sold for $320,000,000 in 2013 and the Islanders sold for $485,000,000 in 2014. Now that the Pens are selling for around $900,000,000, the cap should have some increase related to the increase in value of the teams. A simple double of the 2015 cap , which is less than the increase on the sale, would bring the cap to $138,000,000. It shows how the owners have made a fortune with these teams and screwed the fans and the players.

Means nothing other than the Rangers will tell those players agents the Devils are fucking stupid which is why they won't win anything again.
