ANTON STRALMAN RUMORS

Rangers save their best for last by signing Hayes

By most reasonable counts, the Rangers front office had a pretty crappy summer in free agency. They lost defensive stalwart and ‘possession god’ Anton Stralman to the Tampa Bay Lightning and replaced him with 38 year old Dan Boyle, who can’t come anywhere close to replacing Stralman’s even strength minutes. Even though the Rangers were continue reading...

Brian Leetch On The New York Rangers

from Katie Strang of ESPN, The Rangers’ sturdy back end was a huge component in their playoff success last spring, when they made a run to the Stanley Cup finals against the Los Angeles Kings. Anton Stralman signed with Tampa Bay in free agency, but Leetch would like to see much of that defensive corps remain intact. Priority No. 1, of course, is signing Staal to a new...

Anton Stralman eager to place trust in Lightning's direction

TAMPA, Fla. -- Anton Stralman stood in a small room at Tampa Bay Times Forum, wearing new professional colors as a sign of his trust. The veteran defenseman agreed to a five-year, $22.5 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning last Tuesday, and the sight never would be possible without faith in his new franchise's possible rise. Stralman, who spent the past three seasons with...

Should the Rangers trade negotiating rights of Boyle / Stralman?

Based on the comments made by both Brian Boyle and Anton Stralman, it looks like both will be playing in different uniforms next season. Boyle has said he is looking for a bigger role –likely a third line role with less defensive zone starts– and won’t get that in New York. Stralman is looking for […] The post Should the Rangers trade negotiating rights of Boyle / Stralman...

Lavoie: Talks with Stralman not going well

Per Renaud Lavoie, talks between the Rangers and UFA defenseman Anton Stralman are not going as planned. The Rangers are allotting $4 million to Stralman, but it definitely seems that Stralman will get north of $4.5 million, probably closer to the $5 million that Andrew MacDonald got from Philadelphia. If AMac’s contract wasn’t enough proof, […]

Rangers believed to have allotted $4 million for Stralman

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers have allotted approximately $4 million for Anton Stralman this summer and are prepared to offer three to four years. For Rangers fans with a pulse, this is good news. I have Stralman pegged for $4.5 million a year, which is likely on the high end. I would expect Stralman to sign a deal, whether with the Rangers or another team, for four to five...

Anton Stralman: Market value versus perceived value

Yesterday Anton Stralman gave an interesting quote, stating he is “looking for security for his family,” basically stating he is looking for a contract. Many of us took that to believe that Stralman will price himself out of New York, as the Rangers may not have the cap space to sign their second pairing defenseman. […]

Breakup day notes: Stralman, Boyle could be goners

Today was breakup day for the Rangers, and there were some interesting quotes from some of the players, and not all were good. Dan Girardi suffered a broken pinkie in Game Two against the Kings, per Andrew Gross. I thought he was hurt, but I thought he was more banged up. Anton Stralman said that […]

Just how good is Anton Stralman? (spoiler: really good)

The Stanley Cup Final has been a bit of a coming out party for free agent to be Anton Stralman. The hockey world has been exposed to what astute Rangers fans have known all along; Stralman is very good at hockey. But lets put Stralman’s Stanley Cup Final performance aside for a moment. After all, he has played only 24 games in the playoffs. It makes more sense to look at a larger...

Rejecting Rangers Extension Overtures a Mistake by Stralman

Recently Larry Brooks of the New York Post reported that defenseman Anton Stralman had rejected a three-year, $9MM extension offer from the New York Rangers. This was later rebuffed by Stralman’s representative, Marc Levine, though he did not elaborate whether in fact an offer had been made by the club or whether Stralman had actually […]
