Little ceiling space for UFAs like Kane

After looking at what it would take for Rangers to re-sign their top restricted free agents on Wednesday, let’s turn our attention to the unrestricted group.

There are five UFAs that finished the season on the list, including four in New York as of the trade deadline. Were they acquired purely for rental? Or will there be a return next season?

The circumstances of the Blueshirts salary cap will be prohibitive. They will enter the summer with a forecast of $11.76 million to occupy approximately eight spots on the roster. And, as we’ve pointed out before, a big chunk of that will likely go to their two key RFAs, striker Alexis Lafrenière and defender K’Andre Miller.
