Report: Ryan Strome looking for $5.7 million

The asks are in and Ryan Strome is seeking a new deal worth $5.7 million from the New York Rangers. Jeff Gorton and company have countered with $3.6 million.

And now we can see just how far apart both sides appear to be. Still, this is what is being submitted to the arbitrator where we know that the extreme sides are being presented.

The Walk-Away and Walk-Back scenario

Could the Rangers really walk away from Strome like they did with Nik Zherdev? The answer is yes and that’s because for this season only, there is something called a walk back. That’s where Strome could still win his arbitration and opt to accept the Rangers offer if he doesn’t like what he finds on the open market.

Bottom line, if they get to Thursday and go before the arbitrator the above scenario will happen days after. So this could still take days to resolve.

Mike Tyson vs Georges Laraque? You read that right.
