Larry Brooks writes that the Rangers deep playoff run may have changed how they approach re-signing their free agents this summer since the values of some players may be too much for them to bring back. (NY Post)

Brooks says that the Rangers players have paid a price to get to the Stanley Cup Final and the management team will have to pay higher prices to keep this group together. (NY Post)

He says that Brian Boyle has shown his value to the team but will be sought after if he goes to UFA on July one. Anton Stralman will need to be paid to avoid free agency, Dominic Moore will need a "tidy" increase to keep, Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello will need multi-year deals to avoid arbitration and make them eligible for UFA in 2015.
