Mats Zuccarello agreed to a one-year, $3.55 million contract with the Rangers on Tuesday. He was reportedly seeking $4.5 million annually as part of a long-term pact but he “settled” for a lesser deal in efforts to show what he can do in 2015. He finished with 19 goals and 59 points in 77 games last season in New York. It was the most goals of his four-year career.

The following day the Rangers also inked Chris Kreider to a two-year, $4.95 million contract to narrowly avoid an arbitration hearing that was scheduled for Wednesday. The 23-year-old winger had asked for $2.8 million annually while the team countered with $2.05 million per season. Thus, the two sides agreed to a deal in the middle. Kreider scored 17 goals and racked up 37 points in 66 games last year.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Rangers are currently 16/1 to win the 2015 Stanley Cup, giving them the same odds as the Minnesota Wild and Tampa Bay Lightning. The Chicago Blackhawks remain the favorites to win the Cup at 7/1, while the Boston Bruins and Los Angeles Kings are listed at 10/1, respectively.
