Observations:

 

August 2014 – Chris Kreider and the New York Rangers have agreed to a two-year contract and avoided arbitration on July 23. He will earn 2.35 million for this coming season and 2.60 million in 2015-16. He is due to a massive breakout season next year, if he maintains his top-six spot on the Rangers. Jozsef Kurtosi
