ANTON STRALMAN RUMORS

Way Too Early to Worry About Next Season

In the eyes of much of the mainstream NHL media, the New York Rangers have not had a good summer. They bemoan the losses of Brad Richards, Benoit Pouliot, Anton Stralman and Brian Boyle while suggesting the club didn’t adequately replace those losses in free agency. Many pundits also point out that some of the […]

Stralman says Lightning "close to complete"

New Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman is a huge heavy metal music fan, and can string a few tunes himself. Stralman, 27, said when he and his wife Johanna moved in together in 2005, he had to give up video games, so he decided to buy a guitar for his 19th birthday. He’s no Slash, but can play Guns N Roses “Patience” pretty well. “I wish I was good, like to think I’m...

Anton Stralman Likes His New Team

from Joe Smith of Lightning Strikes, While Stralman doesn't know the bay area very well, he knows the team is joining. "This team really excites me," Stralman said.

Anton Stralman eager to place trust in Lightning's direction

TAMPA, Fla. -- Anton Stralman stood in a small room at Tampa Bay Times Forum, wearing new professional colors as a sign of his trust. The veteran defenseman agreed to a five-year, $22.5 million deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning last Tuesday, and the sight never would be possible without faith in his new franchise's possible rise. Stralman, who spent the past three seasons with...

Lightning sign Anton Stralman

The Lightning have signed Anton Stralman to a five year, $22.5M contract. For you math scholars out there, that’s the same $4.5M cap hit that the Rangers signed Dan Boyle for. According to Larry Brooks, Stralman asked the Rangers for the same contract and they refused. The Rangers are making it pretty obvious that they didn’t truly understand the value of Anton Stralman; that...

Should the Rangers trade negotiating rights of Boyle / Stralman?

Based on the comments made by both Brian Boyle and Anton Stralman, it looks like both will be playing in different uniforms next season. Boyle has said he is looking for a bigger role –likely a third line role with less defensive zone starts– and won’t get that in New York. Stralman is looking for […] The post Should the Rangers trade negotiating rights of Boyle / Stralman...

Lavoie: Talks with Stralman not going well

Per Renaud Lavoie, talks between the Rangers and UFA defenseman Anton Stralman are not going as planned. The Rangers are allotting $4 million to Stralman, but it definitely seems that Stralman will get north of $4.5 million, probably closer to the $5 million that Andrew MacDonald got from Philadelphia. If AMac’s contract wasn’t enough proof, […]

Rangers believed to have allotted $4 million for Stralman

According to Larry Brooks, the Rangers have allotted approximately $4 million for Anton Stralman this summer and are prepared to offer three to four years. For Rangers fans with a pulse, this is good news. I have Stralman pegged for $4.5 million a year, which is likely on the high end. I would expect Stralman to sign a deal, whether with the Rangers or another team, for four to five...

Anton Stralman: Market value versus perceived value

Yesterday Anton Stralman gave an interesting quote, stating he is “looking for security for his family,” basically stating he is looking for a contract. Many of us took that to believe that Stralman will price himself out of New York, as the Rangers may not have the cap space to sign their second pairing defenseman. […]

Just how good is Anton Stralman? (spoiler: really good)

The Stanley Cup Final has been a bit of a coming out party for free agent to be Anton Stralman. The hockey world has been exposed to what astute Rangers fans have known all along; Stralman is very good at hockey. But lets put Stralman’s Stanley Cup Final performance aside for a moment. After all, he has played only 24 games in the playoffs. It makes more sense to look at a larger...
