Bryan Murray Talks Contract Status Of Bobby Ryan And Marc Methot

from TSN,

Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray is confident he'll be able to sign two of his top players, but nothing seems to be imminent.

Murray spoke to CTV Ottawa regarding the contract status of forward Bobby Ryan and defenceman Marc Methot, two players entering the final year of their deals.

"In both cases, I think they want to be in Ottawa, they certainly want to get paid according to the marketplace in their minds," said Murray who is entering his eighth season as GM in the nation's capital.

Murray noted that they will not speak to Ryan regarding a new deal until the season gets underway. Last year, Ryan tallied 70 points during his first season in Ottawa.

"I think he [Ryan] wants to see how important of a role he can play in Ottawa and he tells me he likes it and will do a deal, but he wants to figure out where he's going as far as his career and his opportunity in Ottawa," explained Murray.
