Shattdueces Bought Out By New York Rangers
The New York Rangers were just about $4 Million dollars over the NHL salary cap... Something had to be done to relieve that and unfortunately for NY native, Shattdueces is getting the boot from hence the spot those deuces come from...
Shattdueces had two years remaining at an aav of $6.65 million.
The buyout saves the Rangers just over $5 Million this season, with the remaining $1,483,833 still counting against their salary cap. The cap hit will escalate to more than $6 mill for the 2020-21 season, with only $566,667 in savings.
The Rangers will also absorb $1,433,333 in dead cap space for both the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons.
Because NYR signed Buchnevich it triggered a 48-hour buyout window
JD's boys still have to sign Lemieux and DeAngelo, who are expected to get close to $1 million each, so more moves could be on the way...
