Canes Hope To Lock-up Staal

from Chip Alexander of Lord Stanley’s Blog,

Carolina Hurricanes general Jim Rutherford said today that the team hoped to sign star forward Eric Staal to a long-term contract in the next week to 10 days.

Rutherford would not disclose the financial figures being discussed, but it is believed Staal could receive a seven- or eight-year contract that will pay him between $7 million and $10 million a year.

“We’re continuing to talk and have talked more of late,” Rutherford said. “I would expect us to get a deal done soon. We’re getting to the point we’re just trying to fine-tune it.”
