More than one team was interested in signing Tony DeAngelo as a free agent before Monday’s close of trading after receiving and approving irrevocable exemptions, the Post learned.
However, we were told that there wasn’t enough time to enable DeAngelo to find the right fit and the right deal that would have brought No. 77 back to the NHL 10 weeks after his exile after the January 30 episode bruhaha with Alex Georgiev .
Therefore, DeAngelo remains in the Rangers’ taxi squad and receives his salary of $ 4.3 million (excluding escrow deduction as a defined AHL player) while eating $ 3.075 million from the blueshirt cap. </ The 25-year-old defender will remain under Rangers control until he is either selected by Seattle in the draft expansion (this will not happen) or thereafter purchased from the second year of the contract for a total of $ 1,766,667 rd ding the Blueshirts with a dead cap space of 383,333 USD the next season and 883,333 USD the following year.
According to sources, DeAngelo’s party brought the concept of contract termination by irrevocably renouncing the Blueshirts, which of course only to gladly consented. The prerequisite for the offer, however, was that the defender could reach a contractual agreement with an interested club.
TSN’s Darren Dreger, who was the first to report on the termination scenario, identified the Canadiens as a team interested in a deal deal with DeAngelo.

However, it is not known whether Habs general manager Marc Bergevin’s interest in the right was based on his willingness to sign a multi-year contract.
If clubs were able to fire a shot at DeAngelo at this point, he should have the choice: if he becomes a free agent after the buyout.
