Rangers Sign Mike Rupp to Three-Year Contract

We're more than four hours into free agency now, and Brad Richards hasn't signed yet. (TSN's Darren Dreger thinks he'll take at least "much of the day and night" to consider his options, while Larry Brooks reports that the Rangers will get the chance to match any offer for Richards at the end of the day. The Globe and Mail, by the way, reports that the Rangers remain the front-runner, and that when Richards does sign, word is it'll be a big, heavily front-loaded deal and will "likely be eight or more years." Gulp.) Meanwhile, Jaromir Jagr has signed a one-year deal with the Flyers, and the Rangers have made their first move of this year's free-agency period, signing forward Mike Rupp away from Pittsburgh for a reported $4.5 million over three years. Martin Biron approves. [Blueshirts Blog/NYDN]
