*UPDATE, 8:54 p.m.: Just got off the phone. Glen Sather admitted he didn’t think he was going to be able to land both, but that it worked out in his favor. The team has also already extended an offer to Henrik Lundqvist about a new deal, but Sather also suggested this could change things slightly. And they expect Brendan Shanahan back. More later…*
The Rangers have confirmed they have signed both Scott Gomez AND Chris Drury.
Gomez’s deal is believed to be seven years in excess of $7 million-per. No word on the Drury terms.
The Rangers just sent out a release on both player signings, and a conference call is scheduled foir 8:15 p.m.
Naturally, this means Michael Nylander’s tenure in New York is over.
I’ll update this post as I have new information…
