Contract talks on an extension for pending UFA center Dylan Larkin have been put on hold for the moment as both sides have agreed the focus should be on the playoff race the Red Wings find themselves in.
Obviously, that could change at a moment’s notice if the Wings lose a few games in a row, but it sounds like those contract talks will wait for the moment. And again, Larkin has the full no-trade clause, so nothing would be happening on that front unless he wanted it anyway. And right now he’s in a playoff race.
Of course they are. Larks is too hot right now. Stevie grabbed his stick and puck and will focus on "other issues".....
I read it more as, Stevie is telling Larks to prove he's worth $9milx8.
