Both players are coming off of strong seasons, as Strome recorded a career-high 59 points and DeAngelo had 53 points. Strome was in the final year of a two-year deal that he signed with the Edmonton Oilers for $3.1 million, while DeAngelo made only $950,000 this past season.
The team has extended qualifying offers to both players, so they would not lose either player without compensation.
Strome's salary could increase into the $4.75 million range after arbitration, though that may be more than the Rangers are willing to pay him.
Since DeAngelo has four years of experience, the Rangers can decide whether it's a one or two-year award because they didn't elect for arbitration.
The first day of arbitration hearings are scheduled for Oct. 20.
