Weekes: “Unofficially” Rangers Sign Kevin Shattenkirk to 4 year deal
Officially unofficial news this morning that the Rangers have signed Kevin Shattenkirk to a 4 year deal worth 6.9 million dollars per year. Kevin Weeks of the NHLNetwork has confirmed what FullTiltNYR.com has just learned.

Deal is expected to be officially announced as soon as FA opens at 12pm.
Editor’s Note: If this does become official it will corroborate our stories over the year that Shattenkirk would take a discount to play for the Rangers. In this case the discount is in years as it has been reported that NJ was looking to offer him a 7 year deal. – Anthony
UPDATE: Weekes’ report is being refuted or at least not confirmed yet.
Talked to Shattenkirk camp. He hasn't decided where he will sign yet, reports otherwise are premature.

Told that Shattenkirk is in fact willing to leave millions on table to play for Rangers.
