"It's the nature of the beast right now, league-wide" Bartlett said. "I've had zero conversations with the Rangers. Most of the clubs are waiting to see what the cap number will be post-playoffs. I'm sure I'll have a conversation with them (the Rangers) at the draft."
...the Rangers have a reputation of low balling their free agents, so it should be interesting to see what the offer will be and what the Rangers will do if he gets an offer sheet from another team.
