Rangers: New Contracts For Kreider and Hayes

The New York Rangers had a very successful Friday when they agreed to terms with two of their most important players Kevin Hayes and Chris Kreider. These deals, much like the earlier one for J.T. Miller means the team wasted no time in arbitration and found a good deal that worked for both the players and for the organization. That’s what we call a win win.

According to Andrew Gross an NHL beat writer for The Record, Kreider’s contract is for four years with a $4.625 million per year; and from the Twitter account of former Ranger Aaron Ward, Hayes’ contract is for two years worth $2.6 million a year. Both of these are very reasonable and are helpful for the Rangers who are trying to keep their core together under very tight budgeting restrictions at the moment.

These moves combined with the J.T. Miller resigning will keep the Rangers core of youth together for more years to come and shows that they believe they can continue to win with these three guys in their lineup which is a big boost for the players and the fans.
