Rangers expected to sign defenseman Patrik Nemeth in free agency

Per Larry Brooks, who appears to be back from vacation, the Rangers will be signing defenseman Patrik Nemeth in free agency as soon as Wednesday.

Per Evolving Hockey, Nemeth is most likely to get one year at $1.7 million or three years at $3 million. Nemeth is a fine defenseman, well rounded if unspectacular. His underlying numbers are pretty good ate even strength actually. He’s definitely worth the one year, however three years for a depth defenseman is still risky and an unnecessary cap move.
