Eleventh hour deal between Rangers and Ryan Strome reached

As we noted yesterday, Ryan Strome was walking a very similar path to Chris Kreider in 2016. Back then the Rangers and Kreider agreed to a four year deal on the doorsteps of the courthouse.

The Rangers and Ryan Strome have reached a new deal for two years with an AAV of $4.5 million dollars. This is exactly what the Rangers were hoping for as they have yet come to terms with Brendan Lemieux.

New York will have around $6.4 million in cap space left. That should be reduced by another $1.5 million once Brendan Lemieux is done.
