What Ryan Strome said about how it ended with the Rangers

Ryan Strome was recently on the Missin Curfew Podcast and spoke about his contract situation and how things ended with the Rangers.

Strome said “we were talking during the year a little bit and I wanted to stay, for sure, I think there was interest to stay, and we kind of just parked it to the end of the year, and at the end the year I just had the vibe we were going to go in different ways. To be honest with you, I’m totally cool with it. It is what it is, I get to live in Southern California and join an up and coming team.”

  • He added “My only regret is that I didn’t get to see the whole thing through. Like I mentioned, a few years ago the team wasn’t in that great of a spot and I think a couple of guys, and I was part of that group, we did everything we could to make it back to a recognizable team and when you put all of that work in on and off the ice you want to see it through, but I’m in a great spot and super excited to join a team that I think has a ton of potential and a place I never, ever imagined living and a lifestyle I can’t really think of now. This whole process has been crazy, I just wanted to feel wanted by a team my whole career. I think any hockey player wants to feel part of something and to get a five-year deal in Anaheim shows that they value what I can do and I’m super pumped and can’t wait to get down there in the sun and try to win some hockey games.”

Strome told The Athletic that he felt that it was “close enough at one point that it should have gotten done” and that he felt that when it “didn’t get done during the season it wasn’t going to get done at all.”

The latest on Ryan Strome, Andrew Copp and the Rangers

At 32 Thoughts, Elliotte Friedman said the following about the Rangers:

On Ryan Strome, “Strome and the Rangers were talking all year and they just never got to a sweet spot and I think that continued after the season, after they got knocked out they kept trying. I heard term was an issue, I don’t know if number was an issue or not, but I heard term was an issue. I heard the Rangers were careful about how much term they wanted to give. We’ll see, centers are always valuable.”

What the latest on Ryan Strome and the Rangers might be

Elliotte Friedman spoke about the Rangers on The Jeff Marek Show on Thursday and said “I think it’s going to be interesting there. I think they are trying to keep Strome. I think one of the questions there is term. I know Strome loves it there and I know they really think highly of him and I think one of the things they are haggling over has been term.”

Friedman said yesterday on That’s Hockey Talk that “I think the Rangers are in a lot of things. There were rumors today about Dubois and I’m not convinced Winnipeg is ready to do that yet. I still think they are trying to sign Strome.”
