Kasparaitis to be bought out by Rangers
Earlier today, Sport Express posted an interview with Alexei Yashin and Mark Gandler, Yashin's agent, with the main topic of discussion being the recent buy-out of Yashin's contract by the NY Islanders.
During the course of the interview, Gandler revealed that another one of his clients, NY Rangers defenseman Darius Kaspariatis, was about to have his contract bought out, also.
The conversation went as follows (question by Sport Express, answer given by Gandler):
How did you react to the news about the Islanders breaking their agreement with Yashin?
This is a normal business procedure, as provided by the NHL by-laws. In America, anything can be bought and sold, including contracts bound by signature.
As it just so happens, I already know of one other player that I represent who will be having his contract bought out soon, also-- Darius Kasparaitis, who still has one year to go on his contract with the Rangers.
