Viktor Stalberg, Raphael Diaz and Jayson Megna all have one-way contracts

Stalberg’s deal is worth $1.1 million, Diaz is worth $700,000 and Megna’s is worth $600,00. (Andrew Gross)

A one-way contract does not preclude a team from placing that player on waivers and sending the player to Hartford. If a player on a one-way deal is sent to Hartford he receives the same salary that he would at the NHL level.

Diaz and Megna could both be sent down to the AHL with no impact to the Rangers salary cap while if Stalberg were to be sent down, the Rangers have have a charge of $175,000 because his salary is over $925,000.


What Dominic Moore said on Toronto radio about Marty, losing and next season

DominicDominic Moore was on with Brady and Walker in Toronto this afternoon and said:

  • He is happy with how his Smashfest tournament has grown bigger and bigger.
  • On the season and losing, “We had high expectations for this season after where we were last season and it was a bitter pill to swallow losing how we did. All the teams that get to that point are good and the margins are small and we didn’t manage to pull off what we hoped to. It’s a war of attrition at that point and it’s a matter of who can finish the job.”
