TSN TradeCentre provides latest Chris Kreider update
Darren Dreger and the TSN crew just provided an update on Chris Kreider. While a possibility to sign him remains, the likelihood now is that he will be traded. Additionally it sounds like they have offers on the table to choose from.
Larry Brooks is also piggybacking off Dreger’s reporting with some of his own. Per his reporting the hang up is on both years and money, while I had heard 6 would work for Kreider but money was the issue.
Indeed, the divide on the contract term, with the Rangers offering six years and Kreider asking for the seven years he will almost certainly command on the open market July 1, remained an immovable obstacle neither side was able or willing to hurdle in order to make a deal. There was also a difference on the money, with the Blueshirts believed offering under $7 million per.NYPOST
The article also goes on to discuss possibly trading Brady Skjei or Marc Staal as well. An interesting read for those who want every possible angle.
