New York Rangers: Panarin mania as the Blueshirts get their man

New York Rangers: Panarin mania as the Blueshirts get their man

The team may not be done with free agency and with Jeff Gordon and John Davidson having one of the most successful offseason in recent years don't be surprised if the team continues to improve.

NY also signed two Russians they drafted in previous years - forward Vitali Kravtsov (first round, 2018) and goalie Igor Shesterkin (fourth round, 2014) - to entry-level contracts.

Nyquist said the departure of some of the stars doesn't concern him.

The Columbus Blue Jackets watched three of their best players leave for other teams on the opening day of free agency and did relatively little to fill the holes. He totaled 22 goals and 38 assists last season.

"He was obviously a player we coveted and wanted", Gorton said, adding that the Rangers didn't find out Panarin's decision until just after the start of the free-agency period at midday. In 2019-2020 alone, Panarin, Bobrovsky and Duchene will make a combined $29.6 million.

"I think it's a team that has some really good pieces, some young pieces and also some great veteran leaders, and a team that's really heading in the right direction", Nyquist said. "I have no doubt in my mind that we're going to be a really good team". With the Sharks, he played 19 regular season games and had 6 goals and 5 assists. The Blackhawks also re-signed versatile forward David Kampf, so there will certainly be some competition up the middle.

Panarin's previous contract had an average annual value of $6 million.

The New York Rangers' rebuild just took a giant leap forward. Lee has scored 152 goals in seven seasons with the Islanders. That contract makes Panarin's cap hit the second largest in the National Hockey League, behind only Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers ($12.5 million AAV). The move leaves Carolina seven days to match the Canadiens' five-year, $42.27 million offer or elect to receive Montreal's first-, second- and third-round picks as compensation.

- In New Jersey, the Devils continued stockpiling talent by signing forward Wayne Simmonds to a one-year contract a little over a week in which they acquired defenseman P.K. Subban in a trade with Nashville, and selected center Jack Hughes with the No. 1 pick in the draft.
