    On TSN1050 on Thursday, Ray Ferraro spoke about the Rangers and who they have handled their contract situations (TSN1050).

    Ferraro said, "what is really clear there is that they have chosen to pay the top end of their roster significant amounts of money. Their defense and their goalie, Girardi, McDonagh, Staal, Klein is signed through 2018, Lundqvist for a long-time, Nash is on the books. They will come to this year and have to decide do you want Marty St. Louis or do you want Mats Zuccarello? That may seem simple, Marty St. Louis, but he is 40. I don't think they can sign them both. Now they have JT Miller and Kevin Hayes and Jesper Fast and Stempniak on a one-year deal, the bottom part of your roster has to be cheap and young to balance out the contracts at the other end of it."
