Ranger re-upped

Amidst the hub bub of yesterday's discovery, I missed the news that defensiveman Paul Ranger is back in the fold after inking a 3 year, $2.8 million dollar contract. I'd think that's a bit of a bargain for the Lightning considering how much ice time Ranger logged last season during the continuation of his fast rise with the Bolts. Over both seasons he was a +5 and though not Bobby Orr, he's flashed some offense as well.

I thought for sure a team in need such as the Edmonton Oilers would try to ink him to an offer sheet but being in an "outpost" such as Tampa as Jay Feaster terms it, I guess Ranger's stability is below the radar...
