They have a few UFA's to deal with (Feds, Prust, Biron and Mitchell). I don't think Eminger and Woywitka will be re-signed.
They have a few RFA's to deal with (MDZ, Bickel and Stralman).
Sauer's future is up in the air right now.
I hope Sather deals away Rupp. He's useless IMO.
All in all, the Rangers would have plenty of room for Nash's contract if Dubinsky is part of the deal.
Gaborik is probably out the first 2 months of the season so Sather has to find top end offense somewhere. It will probably be Nash or Bobby Ryan.
