New York Rangers' Offensive Stats Don't Lie

Dan BlumenauContributor IJanuary 15, 2009

Is there any truth in the myth that the Rangers don’t have much by the way of judgement when it comes to signing good offensive players? Careers should thrive at the Garden, instead it seems to be where they come to die.
 
Bear with me on this one. Statistics are hard to follow at the best of times, and this article has attempted to calculate a players worth by working out the average a team pays a player per point and multiplying that by this years projected number of points for that player.

Taking the Rangers, the Red Wings, the Bruins and the Sharks to compare:

Currently, the teams’ offensive units are remunerated nicely:

NYR    $29,188,009.00
SJS    $30,792,500.00
DET    $31,255,000.00
BOS    $29,308,333.00

No surprises that New York pay the least when it comes to offence. However, what is interesting is how the Rangers offensive budget is distributed.
