According to Darren Dreger all signs point to the New York Rangers landing Artemi Panarin.
Belief is Panarin left money on the table. New York rangers are always an attractive draw. https://t.co/uQHPuqtcsM— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) July 1, 2019
Dreger speculates that he is leaving some money on the table to become a Blueshirt, as it was widely reported that the New York Islanders had the best deal on the table.
Panarin is coming off a career year in which he tallied 87 points, 28 goals and 59 assists, in 79 games for the Columbus Blue Jackets. The newest Broadway Blueshirt went undrafted, and the 2018-19 season was just Panarin’s fourth in the NHL.
If this move come to fruition, it would be another major move for general manager Jeff Gorton.
