According to Ranger Rants:
Chris Drury's former Buffalo Sabres teammate, right wing Ales Kotalik, agrees to a deal with the Rangers, details hopefully to come.
Kotalik, 30, ended last season with the Oilers and he combined for 20 goals and 23 assists between Edmonton and Buffalo, the fourth season he has reached 20 goals. At 6-1, 227 pounds, the Czech has a bit of size, too.
According to TSN it's a 3 year deal worth $3M per season. Sounds like a pretty good contract for a player that is capable of scoring 20-25 goals. [Career Stats]
He's much bigger than I realized. But, that doesn't mean much if you don't play big. I don't know much about Kotalik, but I believe from the few times the Rangers played the Sabres that he had a rocket of a shot and sometimes played the point on the Power Play. Anyone else have any thoughts on this signing?
