Eric Staal On His Future In Carolina

from Kurt Dusterberg at NHL.com,

With one season remaining on a seven-year contract, Staal said he has had no discussion with the team about an extension.

"No contract talks," he said. "I'm not worried about it to be honest. I'm not sure what their plans are or what lies ahead."

Staal, once a steady 70-plus point producer, slipped to 61 points last season, and he enters the season finale with 54 points. He has played parts of both seasons working through injuries. The Hurricanes’ captain was clear he would prefer to stay with Carolina, noting his enthusiasm for the organization and its fans.

But if management were to ask him to waive the no-movement clause in his contract, he would be willing to listen.

"Depending on where I was being shipped off to," said Staal, who has 11 points in the past 10 games. "If it came to that, for sure."
