added 7:29pm, TSN has posted their Insider piece discussing Callahan and other topics of interest.
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
The Rangers are approaching next Friday’s 3 p.m. pre-Olympic roster freeze rather than the March 5 trade deadline as the decision-making target regarding the future of Ryan Callahan, The Post has learned.
According to a trustworthy source, the Blueshirts want the situation resolved before their captain travels to Sochi to play for Team USA and therefore subjects himself to possible injury in the Olympics.
It is believed that general manager Glen Sather would be amenable to signing Callahan, an impending unrestricted free agent, to an extension of five years. But sources report that the winger, whose role has been reduced under coach Alain Vigneault. is holding firm on his request for a seven-year contract and has no intention of taking a hometown discount to remain in New York.
