How Much Will It Cost New York Rangers to Re-Sign Remaining Free Agents?

The New York Rangers have not been the most active team of free agency, but business will be picking up shortly. Larry Brooks of the New York Post was the first to report that Derick Brassard, Chris Kreider and Mats Zuccarello filed for salary arbitration on July 5.

It is nothing that was unexpected, but now there will be more of an incentive to get a deal hammered out before an arbitration process that usually gets ugly.

The Rangers are cramped for space, and it would be catastrophic if a player were awarded a high value on a one-year deal that would eventually lead to an early walk to unrestricted free agency.

Brooks did mention that the Rangers and each remaining restricted free agent are still working towards signing a long-term deal, but how much will it cost the Broadway Blueshirts?

Odds are a deal will come before arbitration, because as Brooks noted, Nikolay Zherdev was the last Ranger to make it to an arbitration case, and that was in 2009.

Since the dawn of the salary cap era, fans have turned into armchair general managers and salary cap prognosticators with the help of Matthew Wuest's CapGeek. 

Each player has a value, and based on the information available, here's a rough look at how much it will cost to retain each of the Blueshirts' RFAs.
